Doggie Street Festival gets a barking ovation

San Diego’s first Doggie Street Festival sent tails wagging and pups howling at NTC Park in Liberty Station on March 1.

The event, held to promote canine adoption, featured live music, pet obedience demonstrations, food booths and a rescue dog fashion show with designs by students from Fashion Career College.

More than 25 rescue groups and local shelters – including Helen Woodward Animal Center, San Diego Humane Society and SPCA and Labrador Rescuers – were on hand to educate festivalgoers about adoption.

Silent auction tables included a walk-on role as an extra on Showtime’s “Weeds,” autographed best-selling dog books including John Grogan’s “Marley & Me” and restaurant gift certificates from Roppongi, Sammy’s Woodfire Pizza and others.
