Pet Friendly Events

Did you ever walk around a corner and suddenly see three hundred dachshunds dressed like hot dogs in a bun? Probably not, but you could if you ever headed out to a Wienerfest that encourages such behavior. Or to the hundreds, even thousands of other events around the country that endorse all types of charity, benefits, socials and causes both good and whacky—including rescue fundraising, walks for cancer and other afflictions, as well as more lighthearted fests that pair Beagles and beer, Dalmations and dock diving, felines and fashion, Airedales and art and every other conceivable combination of animal and human do-gooding, craziness and fun. Please be sure to let us know about your upcoming event. We would love to post it!

They were even blessing the dogs there. Plenty of non-profit booths and look-alike and best-dressed contests. There is a short pet parade at the beginning of the day. My dogs just loved it.
