Fido Football and Game Day Festivities will Benefit Homeless Pets

 

 

MORRISTOWN, N.J., January 21, 2014--The "Big Game" is coming to New Jersey and Morris Animal Inn is celebrating with a football game of its own for Fido. The Barker Bowl will be celebrated on Tuesday, January 28 and will feature a four-legged lineup of jersey-clad canine athletes ready to play for a paws cause. Kickoff is at 10 a.m.

Doggie tackles, ball tugs and touchdowns will highlight the spirited competition. With traditional “Big Game” fanfare, Morris Animal Inn will transform its outdoor play yard into a stadium-like atmosphere complete with a pooch-sized playing field, goal posts and a “tail-gating” area for fans. Morris Animal Inn staff will serve as referees and score keepers.

A portion of the proceeds from the Barker Bowl will benefit the Animal Welfare Federation of New Jersey (AWFNJ). Incorporated in 1995, the AWFNJ acts as a unifying voice for the animal protection community. The AWFNJ advocates on animal welfare legislation; encourages the enforcement of animal cruelty laws; conducts programs to elevate the quality of care for animals.

Game Day festivities will include:

Fido football, doggie touchdowns and prizes

Souvenir photo trading cards for each dog

“Tail-gating” refreshments with Bowser Beer and Puppy Pretzels

Souvenir take-home hot dog and hamburger squeaky toys
