Doggiestock invites responsible pet lovers

Few people would attend a fundraiser intended to keep them from reproducing.  And yet, chances are many dogs will show up — wagging tails and all — to the second annual Doggiestock.  Doggiestock is the name of the fundraising festival that helps low-income people pay the costs of having their pets spayed or neutered.

This year’s edition is Sept. 18 at Centennial Fields Park, Snoqualmie.

The uncontrolled pet population is a problem in the Valley, said Cathi Linden, of U Dirty Dog Grooming in North Bend.  Linden is a member of Valley Animal Partners, which started Doggiestock.  Last year, Doggiestock — whose name, slogan and poster come from the Woodstock festival, with a dog instead of a bird atop a guitar neck — helped Valley Animal Partners pay for 90 surgeries.
