Florida Keys Woofstock Attracts Dog Lovers & Pooches

Islamorada (CBSMiami/FKNB) – Thousands of dog lovers, many with their pooches, enjoyed a day of peace, paws and music during the weekend Woofstock Music Fair in the Florida Keys .

Singers, songwriters and musical groups kept the groove moving for the Saturday festival's nearly 1,000 four-legged friends and more than 5,000 two-legged attendees. The event was staged at Islamorada's Founders Park.

Dogs up for adoption showed off their swag and wag during the Rescue Me Mutt Strut with hopes of landing a "fur-ever" home from Florida Keys shelters and breed-specific animal rescue groups of South Florida.

Other canines showed off agility and dock-jumping skills to woo crowds.

Woofstock was organized by Key Largo's MarrVelous Pet Rescues & Adoptions. The free event is one of the Keys' largest pet-friendly festivals devoted to pet fostering, adoption, education and wellness, underscored by outdoor family fun and live music in the island community.
