Written by Australian Dog Lover 10:45:00 - 0 CommentsWOOF DOOF is the very first event of its kind in Australia: it will combine raising funds for animal rescue groups whilst partying to live music in a whopping 10+ hour party on Saturday 9th July.
This idea was conceived by Krissie Zibell in 2014 after popping along to a dog park in Yarraville on a Sunday afternoon to take the 'guys' for a walk, only to stumble upon a renegade setup by a group of friends in the middle of the dog park, dishing out some very cool Sunday beats!
Completely unphased that they were surrounded by four-legged balls of fur who seemed to be loving the music and the vibe just as much as they were, it dawned on Zibell that this could actually be something worth looking into! What doesn’t make people happier than music and dogs? And hence, WOOF DOOF was born.
Since its inception, the Woof Doof team have been working hard in the background developing their concept and fine tuning the plan for execution...
All proceeds from this and future events will be donated directly to various animal shelters and rescues across Australia. Woof Doof’s mission is to provide ongoing emotional and financial support to these organisations that rely solely on donations, bequests and funds to maintain their facilities.
