5th Annual Canine Carnival presented by Wegmans

Canine Carnival 2014 is on the way Saturday August 9, 10:00am â?? 3:00pm at its new location, Jamesville Beach Park in Jamesville, NY, just minutes from downtown Syracuse. Last year's Canine Carnival event was an incredible success with hundreds of animals adopted, 15,000 people attending and more than 100 vendors and rescues represented from as far away as Philadelphia.

This year will again feature hundreds of animals for adoption from dogs and cats to horses, animal demonstrations, horse carriage rides, a Red Cross Blood Drive, food, music, live radio broadcasting and, back by popular demand, our Sports and Kids Zone with Central NY sports teams. Admission is FREE. It will be held rain or shine. We encourage everyone to bring your pets, but all dogs must be on a short leash at all times within the Canine Carnival area.

The Canine Carnival will also feature dog washing and grooming, Spay & Neuter Syracuse (SANS) will again offer micro-chipping for your pet. Veterinary Medical Center of CNY will have an emergency triage center on site for your pets.

Limited booth space is still available for rescues & businesses.

If you are interested in attending, being a volunteer worker, or would like to learn more about sponsorship opportunities for this one-of-a-kind event, please email

Proceeds from the Canine Carnival go to the Priscilla Mahar Animal Welfare Foundation (a 501c3 non-profit organization donating money to Central NY animal rescues and welfares). To date, PMAWF has donated nearly $80,000 to animal welfares and rescues in Central NY.
