DogFest Los Angeles is celebrating the community of people and dogs that make it possible for Canine Companions to place assistance dogs with children, adults and veterans free of charge. These highly trained assistance dogs make a profound impact through the jobs they do, including opening doors, picking up dropped items, alerting to sounds and much more.

So don’t miss out on DogFest. Join the fun - and Give a Dog a Job

Grab your friends, family and dogs and head to Dominguez Park in Redondo Beach, California on June 2 at 8:30 a.m. for the inaugural DogFest Los Angeles benefiting Canine Companions for Independence. Furry friends and families are invited to join us for a day of fun, festivities, graduate speakers, dog demonstrations, music, local vendors, and more! Registration and participation are free! For updates, find DogFest Los Angeles on Facebook!
