Dog Day Afternoon

It’s a big day for local dogs and the people who love them. Mark your calendar with a paw print – Mix 96.5’s Dog Day Afternoon, presented by Prestige Subaru, is Saturday September 15 from noon to 4 pm. For one day only, Asheville’s Salvage Station will allow dogs to enjoy its beautiful spot on the riverside, all in the name of supporting local animal rescue.

Let your kids proudly present their pooch in the pet parade. If your mutt has a memorable mug, get in on Asheville’s Ugliest Dog Contest. We’re bringing in some incredible professional canine athletes to compete, too – and there will be lots of takeaways and treats from our doggie village.

The A-B Tech Pet University will feature chats all day from experts on training, and new pet products, such as CBD oils blended especially for dogs.

Tickets are just $8 at the entrance. Kids under 10 and all dogs get in free. A portion of the proceeds supporting Asheville Humane Society, Mountain Pet Rescue,and Boxer Butts and Other Mutts. Looking to add to your family? Our rescue partners are bringing some friends looking for furever homes.

Prestige Subaru is also giving you a chance to experience the 2019 Subaru Ascent, featuring standard symmetrical all-wheel drive for all your adventure needs, now with available “New Dog Smell” from our friends at Asheville Humane Society.
