changing dates in 2017
Canine Carnival, the largest animal rescue event in the northeast, will be changing dates starting next year moving from early August to end the of September.
In its seven years of existence, Canine Carnival, although very successful attracting more than 15,000 people, hundreds of animals, rescues and vendors, has faced August heat and humidity issues and the occasional thunderstorm. Wayne Mahar, Founder of Canine Carnival says “Moving to the last weekend of September should allow for greater comfort for all involved from the attendees to the animals, not to mention less chance for thunderstorms”.
Canine Carnival 2017 will take place on Saturday September 30th at its usual location, Jamesville Beach Park just minutes from Syracuse.
Canine Carnival is the primary fundraising event of the Priscilla Mahar Animal Welfare Foundation, a non profit 501c3 corporation which donates money to central New York animal rescues. To date the Priscilla Mahar Animal Welfare Foundation has donated nearly $135,000 to CNY animal rescue organizations with hundreds of animals finding their forever homes.
