INDIANAPOLIS — Drink wine, listen to music and pet some dogs this weekend to support Love of Labs, Indiana (LOLIN), a nonprofit rescue for labs and lab mixes.
The 11th annual Labapalooza is Saturday, Oct. 1 from 1-5 p.m. at Mallow Run Winery in Bargersville. Bring your pups along for doggie games like the pie-eating contest, tennis ball drop and the sit and stay contest. Shop 40 vendors and grab a bite from one of four food trucks.
Popular Greenwood band HeartStone Crossing is performing, playing classic rock from the 1960s and 70s plus some 50s music and contemporary songs.
Event Coordinator Sarah Fredericksen and Vendor Coordinator Holly Blevins stopped by Indy Now Wednesday to tell us all about the event, and they brought along two adoptable labs. Larry is 4.5 months old and full of puppy energy, so he’s looking for an active home. Brock is 8 years old and would be perfectly happy as your couch potato buddy.
Love of Labs is also looking for fosters, and that’s the easiest path to adopting one of their dogs, they said. The foster provides a home, food and, of course, lots of love while the rescue organization covers expenses like medical bills.
Visit Love of Labs, Indiana or call 317-602-1410 for more information about fostering or adoption.
