Dogs of all sizes and ages came to Woofstock looking for new families. This 15-year-old girl was as lively as any puppy.

The numbers are in for this year’s Woofstock, the pet adoption and music festival held at University of Puget Sound on Saturday, Aug. 2.┬áBy 4 p.m. that day, 110 animals found homes – 103 dogs and seven cats. In the few days since, the number has crept to 114. And according to an email from sponsor Dugan Foundation’s president, J.R. Dugan, that figure is expected to climb as home visits and reference checks are completed. Twenty-two rescues and shelters from 30 cities in Washington brought 188 adoptable animals to the eighth Woofstock, which featured live music from five groups of musicians who donated their time. The UPS field was also full of pet-related vendors and educational booths. Organizers said about 2,500 humans visited the festival, along with many “well-behaved canines looking to meet a new friend.” “This year we again partnered with Pawsitive Alliance to select and process the adopting organizations,” organizers said.
