NORWICH – With weekend temperatures forecasted to remain well below freezing, pet lovers from all points are cordially invited for a glass of warm cheer, hot food and cool local talent taking the stage at the Blarney Stone Pub.
The return of Woofstock – now in its seventh year – will be taking over the downtown establishment from 1-5 p.m. this Sunday at 26 S. Broad St. in downtown Norwich.
Since 2007, board members from the local chapter of the nonprofit have held the event with an emphasis on both awareness and fundraising aimed at supporting the county's only animal shelter, located on East River Road in the Town of Norwich.
The unique and much anticipated fundraising event has become a bit of an annual staple among locals, raising thousands of much needed revenue over the years.
“Woofstock was created to raise funds in response to a couple of major animal cruelty cases that took place in Chenango County in 2007 and has successfully continued since then,” said organizer Courtney Sullivan.
