The 2nd Annual Rock & Rescue

One Mile Matching Dog Walk

The Matching 1 Mile Dog Walk is the PERFECT way to start your day at The 2nd Annual Rock & Rescue! You and your furry friend will start on the banks of Bass Pro Lake and loop around to return to the AK9I Main Stage where live music welcomes you back. A special Paws on the Patio lunch is available on the PBR deck following the walk - including a treat for your walking companion. Or just enjoy the MANY activities offered for you and your canine at The 2nd Annual Rock & Rescue!

What is a Matching Dog Walk? FIRST, it is a way to have FUN! We invite participants to MATCH their dog if they would like! If he has a purple collar - you could wear a purple scarf! Maybe you have matching shirts or tutus! The BEST matches of the day will receive a special prize on stage following the walk! SECOND, it is a tremendous opportunity to support animal welfare in Virginia. For EVERY walk registration, Tito’s Vodka will MATCH the registration fee. I know - can you believe it???? So if 10 people register for this walk, Tito’s will DONATE $250….if 20 people register, Tito’s will DONATE $500….well you get the picture! Come on out, leash up your best friend and help us reach our goal - which is $1000!! All funds raised will go to providing heart worm prevention for adoptable dogs!

Adopt A Dog

Learning to care for animals happens best at an early age!  Children will have the opportunity to Adopt their own (stuffed) dog - complete with Certified Adoption Certificate!  All they have to do is tell volunteers what they have to do to take care of the "new puppy"!

Selfie Scavenger Hunt

The Selfie Scavenger Hunt is as easy as 1-2-3!  First, children pick up a Selfie List at the Welcome Center!  Second, as they walk through the event, they take selfies with the things on their list.  Third, they return the list to the Welcome Center for a GREAT prize!

Pet Food Drive

Not every pet has a great meal waiting for them each day!  Their owners may be sick or elderly - they may be on a fixed income - but their pet is important and loved!  Please bring a can or bag of pet food to help support two local non-profits that specifically provide for these special pets - Winston Wishes and the Peninsula Pet Pantry!  Everyone who brings a donation will receive a FREE 50/50 raffle ticket as our way of saying thanks!
