This quaint, but sizable city in Northern California is growing to become one of the top spots to bring your dog. With plenty of outdoor activities, dog-friendly vendors, and lots of establishments who encourage pup patrons, Rocklin is becoming one of the top choices for you and your pooch to hang out.
Much of this, though, can be credited to the shelters and rescues that are either located in the city or nearby. One of the largest, the Placer SPCA is a shelter that's devoted to the dogs in their area. Their vision is to ensure that every adoptable companion animal in the county finds a suitable, responsible home, and that all animals they shelter or adopt out are treated with kindness, love, and respect.
Another organization, One More Dog Rescue, is a local, non-profit that is dedicated to saving as many dog-lives as possible. With a strict focus on enriching the lives of pups and people who adopt them, this shelter keeps animals welfare at the forefront of their goals. Currently, the shelter has been taking in animals for over 8 years and are unable to foster, but they still act as an animal sanctuary for the time being.
This festival helps raise money for local canine groups in the area, all while providing you and your Rocklin pooch with dog obstacle courses, doggy zones, wiener dog races ( a can't-miss), dog-themed vendors, live entertainment, food trucks, and more! From tye dye to laughter-yoga with your dog, this awesome event is one you and your pup won't want to miss!
