Barks & Blues Festival 2019

4th Annual Barks & Blues Festival

Presented by:

The Stelzenmuller Rescues

Planning is well underway for the fourth annual Barks & Blues festival scheduled for May 11, 2019. This year we are excited to announce this pet friendly event will be held at the beautiful Woodruff Park on the Riverfront in Uptown Columbus for the 2nd year in a row and will include great music & entertainment, a pet costume contest, food & beverages, raffles, vendors, pet microchip discounts. There will also be adoption specials for the wonderful animals that will be on site.

Our Mission

The vision of Paws Humane Society is to create a community where 100% of the adoptable animals in our community find loving homes and no animals will be euthanized because of pet overpopulation. Paws Humane is a regional leader for animal welfare in spay/neuter, adoption, outreach and education, and our mission is to enrich the lives of both animals and people as a solution-based community resource for animal welfare. Paws Humane’s largest fundraiser, Barks and Blues, is crucial to the support of this mission.
