Pet-Friendly Community Event!

The 2nd Annual Pet-A-Palooza is being held Saturday, June 14, from 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Odd-Fellows Park, and you have the opportunity to be a part of it!

This new pet-friendly community event will feature activities for the entire family. The lineup for the day includes education seminars, food, craft and artisan vendors, children’s activities, music, K-9 demonstrations, fun pet classes and so much more. This is an event you won’t want to miss – and you’ll definitely want to be a part of!

The goal of the Pet-A-Palooza is to help local rescue animals find new forever homes and educate the community about responsible pet ownership. Pet-A-Palooza is being coordinated by the Shelter Sidekicks, the Volunteer Program at the Great Falls Animal Shelter. Funds raised during the event will go towards the HUG (Help Us Grow) Project for the future expansion needs at the Shelter.
