Getting Started

Desert Garden Montessori is a non-profit organization that is teaming up with Throw You a Bone to host Pooch Fest. But this event is not completely run by adults. DGM has children volunteers that are going to be raising money, doing research and working for the Pooch Fest event. Children will work the event and run stands and booths. Each person has a certain category they work in. The children participating are ages 12-14.


We will be hosting many fundraising events to raise money. We are going to use profits to build a Puppy Palace at Desert Garden Montessori to house animals up for adoption and to make Pooch Fest a reality. Pooch Fest will be full of activities to keep you busy with fun. There will  be food, games, shows and entertainment. This is a family friendly event that is enjoyable for all ages.

Check out our wonderful student staff and their furry friends!
