Bow Wow is a joyous traveling film festival that celebrates, educates and inspires all things doggie (with or without their human) through the art of short film.

Each year, the Festival features some of the year’s’ best pooch themed short films all wrapped up in one 90-minute beautiful, fun-loving package!

Bow Wow presents an opportunity for animal welfare groups to host an event that generates awareness as well as offers a unique and delightful way to fundraise.

Since launching in 2015, over $200, 000 has been raised for animal welfare partners at Bow Wow Film Festival events!

The Kern Project

Website: www.thekernproject.com

The Kern Project is a mission to save the dogs of the Kern County Animal Shelter through rescue, foster and low-cost spay/neuter programs. Kern County has been overflowing with dogs and puppies of all ages for ten years. Sadly, over half of the dogs that came through the shelter in 2011 were euthanized for lack of space.

Northern California Family Dog Rescue, a 501c3 non-profit organization, saves great dogs from shelters all over California. Family Dog has created a special program to rescue dogs from Kern County and transport them to foster or adoptive homes in Northern California.
