Pet Lovers Fest 2023

Come together to celebrate your furry family member!

The Shoppes at Lafayette 11AM - 3PM

This year, we are rebranding our "Tails & Trails" Event to include pets of ALL species! Introducing, PET LOVERS FEST!

Join us at The Shoppes at Lafayette for a day to celebrate YOUR furry loved one, whether you adopted from us or not, we would love to see you and your pet here! That's right, it's a pet-friendly event - just ensure that your dog is on leash or your cat is in a cat stroller/backpack, and please only bring your furbaby if they're going to get along with all of the other pets (and human children) we expect to have join us. 

This is also a family friendly event, so bring the kids for some games, facepainting and more! We will have all kinds of vendors, food, live music and games for the pets and kids! Need time to relax? Sign up for Cat Yoga where you can work with a yoga instructor with some adoptable cats! Are you more competitive? Try our doggy Peanut Butter Eating Contest at 1:30 and take home a prize! We'll also have a Cornhole tournament at 11:30 and Twister competition at 12:30! And do you think you look like your pet? We'll be the judge of that - enter our contest and win!

Don't forget to donate towards TEAM CAT or TEAM DOG by clicking the link here and donating on Facebook OR on the form below! We are seeing which species has the bigger fanbase, but the money raised goes to help ALL of the animals at our shelter!

We can tell their stories, but it is YOU who will give them a second chance!!!

You can register as a participant, vendor, or business sponsor online below!
