On Saturday, September 21, 2019 the National Museum of the Marine Corps in Quantico will be holding it’s annual “Dog Days” event. The museum has once again, graciously offered On the Rebound rescue to setup our Kissing Booth within the museum itself. Come by between 10am to 2pm for a sloppy bulldog kiss.
In addition to the OTR Booth, there are other activities:
- “Semper Fido” Dog Costume Contest: Everyone is welcome to participate! So, if you have a bulldog that likes to dress up please enter them in the contest.
