May 16, 2020 - Virtual


For precautionary reasons related to coronavirus (COVID-19), we are unable to gather for DogFest Orlando scheduled on May 16, 2020 at Central Park in Winter Park, FL. But we can still gather virtually to celebrate the human-canine bond. We highly encourage you to join the fun virtually on our DogFest Orlando Facebook event page

As a non-profit organization that relies 100% on fundraising and private donations, it is our hope that you will continue to fundraise using the DogFest Orlando's virtual platform. This will allow you to continue to support the mission of Canine Companions - to enhance the lives of people with disabilities by providing expertly trained assistance dogs free of charge.  With the unforeseen economic changes tied to the coronavirus, your support of DogFest is even more critical this year.

 It’s important that we all look out for each other and we are grateful to all our event partners for their exceptional efforts and guidance. Thank you for understanding; we know you share our concerns.

Make your sponsorship dollars go twice as far! Thanks to a generous donation from the DPH Fund, all sponsorship levels $250 and above will be matched up to $25,000.  There are engaging sponsorship opportunities at every level, all of which demonstrate a company’s or organization’s desire to be part of a family-friendly, dog-friendly and completely accessible event that celebrates community, camaraderie and the human-canine bond. We promise that your sponsorship will be “the best bark for your buck,’ but more importantly will transform lives.
