Alachua County Humane Society holds their annual Woofstock event-- with one big surprise


Groovy glasses, tie-dye cake, and a VW busno this isn’t Woodstock, but instead—Woofstock.

The Alachua County Humane Society is holding their third annual Woofstock event

The benefit is to help raise over 40,000 with the help of silent auctions and donations.

“Its casual, it’s got that 1960’s really hippy and groovy theme,” says Margot DeConna, Alachua County Humane Society director of development. “The food is good, the beer is good, the wine is good so what more could you ask for.”

There was one surprise for guests.

The Alachua County Humane Society, Gainesville Pet Rescue and Helping Hands Pet Rescue have joined to be one organization called the Humane Society of North Central Florida.

The groups have been working on this project since January, and starting tomorrow, they will all have the new name.

“We will have a more regional focus, and we will streamline everything within our organization to make sure we can save as many lives as possible,” says DeConna.

Alachua County has maintained a no-kill shelter for a year, and say this joint effort will help create more no-kill shelters in region.
