March 31

Join the fun at DogFest Jacksonville, a community-based walk and festival that brings dog lovers together for a cause. Whether you have a dog or simply love them, spend the day at DogFest and celebrate our canine friends and heroes that bring joy to our lives. All funds raised benefit Canine Companions for Independence and their mission of matching assistance dogs with children, adults and veterans with disabilities, free of charge. These expertly trained assistance dogs make a profound impact through the jobs they do like opening doors, picking up dropped items, alerting to sounds and much more.

Gather your friends, family and dogs and head to the Seawalk Pavilion in Jacksonville Beach, FL on March 31 for the 6th annual DogFest Jacksonville. Everyone is invited to join us for a day of fun, festivities, inspiring speakers, dog demonstrations, music, food and more! Registration is free.

Thanks to a generous event match from Providence Homes, and thanks to YOUR fundraising efforts every dollar raised by December 31, 2018 up to $10,000 was matched doubling our dollars. Keep on fundraising to help us reach our goal! Every donation will make it possible for Canine Companions to continue its mission.
