Yardley fundraising event benefits Canine Companions for Independence

Canine Companions for Independence DogFest will host a fundraising event with two local businesses, Commonplace Reader Bookstore and the Yardley Ice House, 5 to 7 p.m. Saturday, July 11 in Yardley.

There will be a “puppies on the porch” event at the bookstore and the selling of “pup cups” at Yardley Ice House, where 100% of the proceeds benefit Canine Companions for Independence. You’ll also be able to meet Canine Companions service dog teams and puppies-in-training.

DogFest is a family-friendly and dog-friendly community festival that raises funds and awareness for Canine Companions for Independence, the nation’s and largest service dog providers. This year the event will be held virtually on Sept. 26.
