Visit Us At VAO presents WOOFSTOCK

The VAO’s largest annual fundraiser is the Woofstock Festival. Planning for the first Woofstock started out 21 years ago and it was a very small event held on the front lawn of the shelter with a few vendors and light attendance. Years ago we branched out to hold the festival in John Connolly Park, Voorhees.  September 24, 2016 was our 20th Anniversary Woofstock Festival. We had a fabulous day with over 4,000 people in attendance!

Woofstock is a huge, outdoor, family & pet friendly festival. We have live music from local musicians playing throughout the day. We have dog demonstrations, gourmet food trucks, a raffle basket pavilion, an alumni parade, and special guests such as the Joseph Ferko String Band, Master Chef Joe Poon and Dr. Elizabeth Severino (Animal Communicator).  Last year we had 100 craft and retail vendors and 30 local animal rescue groups.  It was a day that broke the record books on all previous Woofstock Festivals!
