You are invited to participate in the Baltimore Humane Society's DogFest 2017 to be held at the Baltimore Humane Society at 1601 Nicodemus Road in Reisterstown, on Saturday, September 16, 2017 from 10:00am-4:00pm! This is a rain or shine event.

DogFest is our largest fundraiser and community event. The event will take place at our 365-acre property at 1601 Nicodemus Road, Reisterstown, Maryland on Saturday, September 16, 2017, from 10:00am-4:00pm. Last year we welcomed over 3,500 animal lovers to this unique event, which encourages individuals and families to enjoy a day full of games, contests, activities, food and FUN!

Baltimore Humane Society has waived the registration fee for all nonprofit vendors!  As a vendor you will enjoy wonderful community exposure and sales opportunities for your products and services, as well as the good feeling of knowing that you're helping to care for the animals at the Baltimore Humane Society.
