Fundraising @ DIY

Volunteers have been the backbone of DIY since the very beginning, and we are thrilled to continue the community-driven tradition each year. Please take a moment to say hello and learn a little bit about each of the amazing non-profit organizations that make your visit to DIY more fun!

Take a moment and meet these amazing organizations:

DIY Street Fair - Bark Nation


It is the mission of Bark Nation to bring the Canine American welfare community together to put an end to the over-populated, over-euthanizing, over-ignorant, under-educated practices of the nation that we live in. It has never been, is not now, and never will be ‘okay’ to mistreat, neglect and dispose of the companion dogs that WE chose to domesticate in this way. We refuse to accept or fall into the traps of the excuses that allow this hogwash to continue. Nope, not doing it.
