The Huron County Humane Society is having its annual Woofstock fundraiser event from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday at its facility, 246 Woodlawn Ave.

“Join us for a carnival of fun. There will be a 45(-minute) magic show, Michael Mage, at 1 p.m., food trucks, games, face painting, music, police swat Humvee and access to Conway Dog Park and more. All you need to enter the dog park is your furry friend’s current and up-to-date shot records along with their 2019 dog license,” said Darla Gow, community development director.

Tickets for the magic show will be available at the door. Mage advertises himself as “a comedian stuck in (a) magician’s shoes.” 

“There will be a special appearance by Skye from the Paw Patrol, courtesy of Fairytale Royal Parties and PJ Mask Catboy too. Come see our new mascot for the first time. He doesn’t have a name. Can you name him for us?,” Gow said.

“For the past 15 years, Michael Mage has been amazing audiences nationwide while transforming ordinary events into extraordinary experiences. Michael’s unique blend of comedy and unexplainable mind reading and magic will leave you spellbound.

“The funds earned from this fundraiser will help us continue to provide a loving, safe, clean shelter to help the community, your friends or neighbors who find themselves in a crisis situation with nowhere for their animals to go,” Gow added.

The Huron County Humane Society cares for animals by: Providing temporary shelter, providing immediate and intensive veterinary medical care emphasizing spay and neuter; conducting outreach and education programs specifically teaching about the humane care of animals and to reinforce concepts of kindness and respect for all living creatures; enforcing animal welfare laws and conducting cruelty investigation and rescue by a deputized humane investigator.

“Each year, the Huron County Humane Society takes in hundreds of companion animals and successfully places many of them in loving homes. Your support of the HCHS allows us to continue to serve Huron County, while continuing to share the news of the extraordinary need for humane society services and the fact that the HCHS relies solely on private contributions,” Gow said.
