This year’s GWAR-B-Q would not be possible without a slew of kick ass sponsors including:
Ring Dog Rescue is a rescue group dedicated to the “Pit Bull type dogs”, which is defined as any dog having bulldog lineage. We are a 501 (c)3 nonprofit organization and are currently listing adoptable pit bulls from, not only Ring Dog Rescue, but our other rescue friends and those who have opened their door to an orphaned pit bull in private rescue.
Mount Baker Vapor is known for their 100% American-made e-liquids. The company recently launched a line of five official GWAR fluids: Bloodbath, Jizmoglobin, GWARY4, Spew and German Chocolate Beefcake. Bohabs and vaping aficionados alike have been praising these high-quality, low-priced juices and other vaping supplies and all will be available to try at Mount Baker Vapor’s vending tent at the GWAR B-Q.
