The annual Family, Fur & Fun Festival provides a fun way to learn about caring for furry friends and helping animals in need. It’s perfect for the whole family and leashed, well-behaved pets and companion animals.
The free event features educational, interactive and service booths and activities, including keeping pets healthy and slim, Halloween costume contest, Dachshund races, dog agility demonstrations, naming new shelter animals, free nail trimming, Halloween pet safety, making pets part of the family, pet planning in case of a home fire or flood, and refreshments. Special pricing for pet portraits and $5 Canine Good Citizen testing will benefit local animal shelters. The festival’s message is kindness to animals and the importance and need for adopting or fostering a pet, spaying and neutering, and volunteering.
