Join Barking Dog Creations Studio and lots of other great vendors at the annual Bishop Animal Shelter Canine Christmas!


Saturday November 17 and Sunday November 18

10 - 4PM


Canine Christmas is a pet and family friendly event held on the 3rd Saturday of every November. Our 2018 festival will be our 20th annual! In celebration of 20 years, we're making this year's festival a 2 day event! Dozens of local vendors come to Bishop including animal rescues, food trucks, dog groomers and trainers, as well as vendors selling pet and holiday related merchandise so you can get your Christmas shopping done early! 

This free festival features adoptions from Bishop and other rescues in the area. There is a Doggy Fashion Show hosted by the Doggy Diva where pups and their owners can take home trophies in different categories. Food trucks arrive serving shaved ice, hot dogs, pizza, and more. Every year we also see the Doggie Fun Zone, an obstacle course where your dog’s agility and speed can be put to the test. You can also get your pet’s photo with Santa for your Christmas card and enjoy our live music performers. Mark your calendars so you can bring your families and children (furry or otherwise) to the biggest four-legged event in town!

Art Uptown Gallery - Reception November 3rd, 5-9PM

New works by Evelyn McCorristin Peters. A search for how home is defined in time.

Art Uptown Gallery’s November exhibit features Evelyn McCorristin Peters’ new paintings.  Peters demonstrates her skill in capturing the essence of widely different realms in her upcoming show, Defining Home.  The gallery will host an opening reception from 6 to 9 p.m. on First Friday, November 3, at 1367 Main St.  The show runs from October 28 through November 24. 
     Last year, Peters celebrated lovable old dogs and luscious desserts in her solo exhibit.  This year, her paintings express her feelings about “home.”  The artist’s current Myakka home provides plenty of inspiration.  She shares her 12 acre Barking Dog Ranch with her husband, two dogs, visiting horses, sharks and local wildlife.  “My life is a menagerie of the people, places and happenings of a distinctive south Florida experience,” she laughs.

Vintage Paws, a non-profit 501(c)3 senior dog sanctuary, was started (officially) in 2012 by Jennifer Hummel, a long-time animal lover and owner of ACE Pet Resort. The goal of Vintage Paws is to give senior and terminally-ill dogs a home of their own. These dogs are dogs whose owners have passed, whose owners can no longer care for them, dogs who have been abandoned at a shelter, or otherwise deemed unadoptable due to age or illness. All funds go toward ongoing veterinary care, feeding, recreation, and placement.
