Camp Bow Wow(R) Plays Matchmaker for Puppy Love

Cupids & Canines Event on February 7 to Benefit The Bow Wow Buddies Foundation(R) and Local Humane Organizations

BOULDER, CO--(Marketwire - January 27, 2009) - With Valentine's Day approaching and puppy love in the air, Camp Bow Wow will once again act as matchmaker for humans seeking their furry, four-pawed soul mates. The third annual Cupids & Canines fundraiser will be held on February 7 at participating Camp Bow Wow locations across North America.

This loving event doubles as an adopt-a-thon for animals in need of forever homes and as a fundraiser for The Bow Wow Buddies Foundation and other humane organizations. Camps are partnering with local rescue groups who will have plenty of adoptable puppies and dogs on hand, as well as information on how to meet other worthy pups in need of good homes.

"As we grow, it's truly wonderful to see so many of our franchisees giving back to their communities by helping dogs and shelters in need," said Heidi Flammang, founder and CEO of Camp Bow Wow. "The money we raise for our foundation will not only support foster care and adoption programs, but it will also help fund research for canine cancer which takes one in four of our beloved pets."

For specific event dates and times at participating locations, please visit our website and contact your local Camp Bow Wow. Dog lovers who are unable to adopt are encouraged to make a donation at the event or by visiting the foundation online at
