Pope Memorial Humane Society of Knox County will host K9 Carnival at Harbor Park, 1 Pleasant Street, Rockland, on Saturday, September 28, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The fundraiser will support the care of local homeless animals.

Featured will be Dog Lovers Day Lure Course, the first of its kind in Maine. The course is fully fenced and there are viewing areas for the community. Any dog that likes to chase things or play fetch is likely to enjoy lure coursing, which involves chasing a mechanically operated lure.

The cost to run the course is $10 per dog; every participant will receive a professional photo of their dog(s) running the course.

Other activities will include a dunk tank, carnival games, dog kissing booth, puppy playpen, dog ball pit, face painting, grilled-cheese bar, silent auction, bake sale and more. For more information, visit humanesocietyofknoxcounty.org, email events@hskcme.org or call 594-2200.
