Wayne Mahar and the Priscilla Mahar Animal Welfare Foundation (PMAWF) are proud to announce a new partnership with Galaxy Events Company and Galaxy Media.

Canine Carnival began as an idea by Wayne Mahar as a tribute to his mom and has become a major event for Syracuse and Central New York. In eight years it, has grown to become one of the largest animal rescue events in the country attracting 10,000 – 20,000 people and more than 50 rescue organizations.

“The growth of Canine Carnival over these eight years is nothing short of incredible,” stated Wayne Mahar, President of the Priscilla Mahar Animal Welfare Foundation.” So far, $200,000 has been donated to central NY animal rescues with hundreds of animals finding homes, all thanks to the terrific volunteer staff who work on it with me, sponsors, and so many others who donate and make it happen. I feel we’ve done as much as we can for not being in the event business. The potential is there for further growth of Canine Carnival, but we need experts to help, preferably experts who love animals as much as we do. It was an easy choice!”

Galaxy Events Company knows how to manage large, successful events. Taste of Syracuse, Lights on the Lake, LEON Festival, and Wine and Chocolate Festival are just a few of the great events Galaxy heads up. Pam Levine, President of Galaxy Events and also an animal lover, sees potential to expand Canine Carnival making an already great event even better while taking on some of the workload of running the event.

“All of us are thrilled to be involved in such a great cause,” said Pam Levine. “We are looking forward to a great working relationship with the PMAWF, and to expanding their resources to help homeless animals throughout our community. The numerous animal rescues across Central New York do great work and we’re anxious to help them to the best of our abilities.”

This year’s Canine Carnival will be Saturday September 15th, once again at Jamesville Beach Park, 10am – 3pm, rain or shine.
