Wags to Whiskers Festival, Saturday, September 30

11-3pm on the ball fields at the Anheuser-Busch Brewery in Merrimack

Bring your dog and family for a fun day all about dogs with vendors, food, and dog centered entertainment. We’ll also be making an attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the most number of dogs having their teeth brushed at the same time. We were just 5 dogs short of breaking the record last year. Join us and help us do it this year! Get all the details on our website and our facebook event page!

Ongoing Events

HSFN Alumni Woof Pack Dog Walks

This is a free meet-up group for owners and their HSFN alumni pups who enjoy taking their dogs out to walk, run and romp at local dog-friendly places. Walking venues will range from easy to strenuous, with dogs either leashed or off-leash pending town leash laws and owner’s control. Detailed descriptions of the meet-ups will be posted so you can be sure the walk is appropriate for you and your dog. Learn more about this group on our page. You must sign an online waiver through and RSVP for the walk.
