‘Woofstock’ going for the dogs

BROADALBIN - The Regional Animal Shelter in Gloversville is running a fundraising music festival Saturday called "Woofstock."

The event will take place at 4 p.m. at the Robin's Nest.

According to Renee Earl, fundraising coordinator for the event and member of the board at the shelter, Woofstock is a new event, and she hopes it becomes an annual one.

Admission will be $10 for adults. Children younger than age 14 can get in by donating dog food, soap, dog treats or other items to the shelter.

Woofstock will have live music from bands Clean Street, Rocky Graziano, Roger "True" Guzman, and Two Out of Three, as well as a DJ and karaoke. A 50/50 raffle and a Chinese auction also will be held.

Earl said all raised funds will go to the care of animals. However, some money would be set aside to build a larger shelter in Johnstown.

"We have blueprints, but it is not completely official yet," Earl said.

The new building will have 30 large dog runs, an isolation area, an area for cats that include 24 cages and an open exercise room, surgical areas to perform spayings and neuterings, a feeding room, a bathing/grooming room, storage facility, radiant heat flooring, an office/intake area, and a gift shop.
