The event will be held from 11 – 3 pm at 3 Dog Farm Canine Country Retreat located at 15268 Shannondale Road, in Purcellville, VA.

In each of the past few years, the Lost Dog and Cat Rescue Foundation have hosted the Karnival which has rapidly become one of its signature fundraisers. This year is no exception. Canines and their human companions are invited to spend an afternoon at the beautiful, 23-acre 3 Dog Farm. Once there, the dogs can enjoy themselves playing canine games, competing in races and contests, viewing demonstrations, and paddling away in a securely fenced 5-acre pond – in short, simply having a “dog-gone good time” Attendees and their canines can also look forward to meeting and patronizing all of the wonderful exhibitors on site. This exciting event typically attracts more than 300 dogs and their owners. All proceeds generated will go toward saving the lives of furry friends in need.

Registration is required; the early registration fee is $20 for the first dog and $15 for each additional dog. Registration is available online until October 8. You may also register at the event itself, $25 for the first dog and $20 for the second. To register, volunteer for or learn more about this event, please visit

Comprised of a highly dedicated group of volunteers, Lost Dog and Cat Rescue Foundation has served the community since 2001.

In 2008 alone, LCDRF was able to re-home over 1,700 adoptable dogs and 600 adoptable cats.
