Woofstock, the annual entertainment event that supports pet adoption, is Saturday at UPS’s Todd Field.

Presented by the Dugan Foundation, this year’s event features musical artists Erina McGann, Maya & Matt, Gina Belliveau and Automatic Theory playing indie folk, Celtic, acoustic pop and alternative rock.

At Saturday’s free event you can meet over 100 dogs, cats and ferrets and decide which one might be a good addition to your family. Last year 121 animals found new homes at Woofstock. Click on “more” for details.

There will be a disc dog demonstration, Dachshund races, doggy massage and kids’ activities.
