SHREWSBURY, Pa. — Country Comfort Kennels and Camp for Pets has something to bark about. They are celebrating their 25th anniversary by throwing a birthday bash and costume parade for their four-legged friends. The festivities are scheduled to be held on Saturday, June 14 from 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. at their third and newest facility in Shrewsbury, Pa. on 23 Kratz Road. Animal Rescue dogs ready for adoption and friendly, vaccinated dogs everywhere are invited to attend and to bring their favorite human.

Free gourmet doggy birthday cake and people cake will be served. Vegetarian food and sodas will be sold to benefit Animal Rescue. The first 100 dogs on the scene will receive hats, prizes and special doggy bags.

Catering to dogs has been the lifetime passion of Founder, Pat Weiskopf, and sons Arlo and Paul, who grew up in the business.

“Dogs are not just pets,” Weiskopf explains. “They are members of the family. They have the wonderful ability to form friendships and bonds outside of their home just like children do at school. Once they discover that our camp for pets is all about food, friendship and fun, we’ve made a friend for life.”

Party festivities will include a costume parade with prizes for the biggest dog, smallest dog, best costume and an owner/pet look-a-like contest. The pet playground will feature playgroup demonstrations and everyone in attendance is welcome to use the play area.

As a fundraiser, Animal Rescue will offer pet photos, micro-chipping, nail clips, and information on low-cost spay and neutering.

Country Comfort Kennels and Camp for Pets offers their unique pet services to the Baltimore, Harford, Carroll and York County communities. The organization has been in continuous operation by the same owners for 25 years. In 1983, they were the first in the area to offer boarded pets fun and freedom by providing play yards, nature walks, and even swimming.

This newest location offers luxury accommodations on 10-plus acres where furry guests are entertained with an array of fun camp activities.
