Camp Bow Wow holds annual Cupids and Canines adopt-a-thon

Expect lots of puppy love to be in the air at Camp Bow Wow’s fifth annual Cupids and Canines Adopt-a-Thon.

More than 50 dogs will be available for adoption at the event scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 9 from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. at the Enchanted Forest Shopping Center in Ellicott City.

Camp Bow Wow is a nation-wide day care and overnight camp franchise for dogs, with a location in Columbia. The business’ motto is “It’s all about the dogs.”

Sponsored by Kimco Realty and the Petco Foundation, the event features 20 rescue groups from the mid-Atlantic region, discounted micro-chipping for pets, raffle prizes, vendors, games and refreshments.

In addition to the adopt-a-thon, the event is to help raise awareness and funds for the Bow Wow Buddies Foundation, which helps support foster care and adoption program, and help fund research for canine cancer.

The event is also a Hurricane Sandy Pet Drive, done through the Southern Ocean County Animal Shelter of New Jersey, and participants are asked to donate a bag of dog or cat food, wet food or other pet items.
