PEORIA (25News Now) - As the final days of summer wrap up, the dogs are still out enjoying the sun, thanks to Woofstock 2023.

SAMS Rescue hosted the live dog-friendly concert on Sunday. The event featured music from West MacQueen Street Band.

Alex Menke, a volunteer, says this is the animal shelter’s largest fundraiser and all of the donations are necessary to make sure the volunteers can address the needs of the community.

“The vet bills never stop, the food bills never stop, wet food, litter, all the supplies that go into running a shelter and of course, paying out staff and our wonderful manager to make sure that everything is running smoothly and we’re helping pair animals with the right homes,” she said.

The goal for Sunday’s outdoor concert was to raise $20,000.

SAMS Rescue is located in Hanna City.
