The main event Saturday will be a parade of rescue dogs that will showcase adoptable dogs from a dozen different breed-specific rescue organizations and local all-breed shelters. As each dog goes on parade, a representative of the sponsoring organization will provide commentary on the animal. The goal is not only to help find homes for these dogs but also to educate the public about the needs of different breeds and adoption and fostering options. Other highlights of Saturday's schedule will include a community dog show open to dogs owned by both visitors and residents. Sunday will feature three sheepdog demonstrations with Border Collies. This will be a good opportunity to learn how these highly intelligent dogs herd large numbers of sheep with instinct and training.

There will also be a silent auction of goods and gift certificates donated by Shepherdstown businesses.
