Day of the dogs: DoggieStock 4 doubles in size; day of music and tails drew more than 500 pets and and their people to North Bend’s Tollgate Farm Park

In its fourth year, the annual celebration of dogs and music is going strong in North Bend. DoggieStock 4 returned to Tollgate Farm Park last Saturday, drawing hundreds of dogs and their owners.

The fundraiser for Valley Animal Partners included food vendors, three live bands, dog adoptions, agility demonstrations and the always popular Doggie Olympics.

“It was at least twice as many people as last year,” said Jody Carr, event chairperson. Although an accurate count is hard to get at a free event, she estimated more than 500 people took part in DoggieStock.

Several families began the process of adopting dogs during the day; a final count will depend on the application processing and site visits

A pickup truck provided by Chaplins Chevrolet was filled more than once with donated pet supplies throughout the day, too.

“They had to go unload to collect more donations, so that was really heartwarming to see,” Carr said.
