Bully Bash 2014!

The York County SPCA’s Fourth Annual Bully Bash will be held on Saturday June 7, 2014 from 10am to 2pm at John Rudy County Park!

Last year’s event brought together hundreds of animal lovers for a fun-filled day of activities, training demonstrations and pet-related vendors all while raising over $20,000 to help sustain the York County SPCA and its mission. This year’s event promises to be bigger and better and we would be honored if you would join us in the day’s festivities!

The Event

The core purpose of Bully Bash is to raise positive awareness about Bully breeds by reducing the negative stereotypes and ultimately finding much-needed fur-ever homes for those breeds in our care.

Throughout the day, visitors enjoy educational seminars, demonstrations, and other exciting activities including:

  • Adoptable SPCA & Rescue Dogs
  • Pet-Friendly Vendors
  • CGC Testing
  • Raffle Baskets
  • Doggie Ice Cream Eating Contest
  • SPCA Alumni Parade
  • Fun, Competitive Games
  • SPCA Photo Booth
  • Refreshments
  • And Much More!

As always, admission to the event is free!
