[September 19, 2013]  On Saturday, Anytime Fitness of Lincoln will host the second annual Woofstock fundraiser, a hound and human health fair to benefit the Humane Society of Logan County. The event will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Kickapoo Creek Park.

Woofstock is co-sponsored by Jake's Home Furnishings of Lincoln.

The fundraiser will feature a raffle, prizes, informational booths, vendors, contests, activities for kids and dogs alike, pulled pork sandwiches from Peggy's Place featuring Fat Boys BBQ, and many other ways to have fun while raising money. All proceeds will be donated to the Humane Society of Logan County.

Woofstock is a fun-filled, family-friendly event where the pet and pet lover can spend a day together and raise money for the local Humane Society. Pet lovers can come with their leashed pet to peruse the various vendors, including wine tasting with Hometown Wine & Spirits, receive a complimentary photograph of their family with pet by 74K Photography, receive a nail trim for their dog from Big Paws K9, and much more.

The mission statement of the Humane Society of Logan County is to prevent the cruelty, abuse and neglect of animals, promote the proper placement of animals through adoption, work toward the solution of pet overpopulation, educate the public about the humane treatment of animals, and aid in the return of lost animals to their owners.

Anytime Fitness Lincoln, a brand-new, state-of-the-art 24/7 facility, is the host for Woofstock. Owner-manager Josh Slightom expressed his excitement about hosting the event for the second year in a row.

"We are so amazed at the reception from the community towards Woofstock," he said. "This year, people contacted us asking how they could be involved. This really proves that philanthropy is alive in Lincoln and the Logan County community. We are honored to be able to help the Humane Society of Logan County and feel that it is not only our part to keep the humans healthy in Logan County, but also to work towards the betterment of its animals. Thank you to all supporters and sponsors. Without them none of this would be possible"

Besides being a unique opportunity for animal and fitness lovers, Woofstock has attracted the participation of other generous local business sponsors: Jake's Home Furnishings, Wal-Mart, Sal Pollice of Edward Jones, Seth Goodman, Dr. Lara Borgerson, Integrity Data, Lincoln Printers, Blades Hair and Nail Salon, Bennett Funeral Home, Big Paws K9, Puritan Water, Heath Source Chiropractic, Punky Creations Photography, and more.

Bring your walking shoes and your furry friend to Kickapoo Creek Park on Saturday and join others for smiles, wagging tails and the good feeling of supporting a great local organization -- the Humane Society of Logan County.
