What is petapalooza?

The Petapalooza Pet Adoption Festival is a free event that features lovable, adoptable homeless animals from local shelters and animal rescues in the Central PA area.

We focus on ALL animal rescues at Petapalooza. This year, we have almost fifty groups featuring dogs, cats, birds, chinchillas, rats, and bunnies. In addition to helping animal rescues, we also focus on being an animal-friendly festival with vendors, raffles, live music, Barkby Plunger's Dog Course Luring, food trucks and (for our third year) The Pet Parade to raise money for the animal shelters and rescues.

who's COMING this year?

Best Friends Furever is proud to present the following Rescue, Shelter and Animal Welfare Groups that will be attending Petapalooza on June 11, 2016.

 

Check out their websites to see a list of their adoptable pets and learn how you can help them in their mission.

PET PARADE

Rescues and Shelters have a chance to showcase their adoptable animals and raise money for their organizations.

 

At 12:30pm and 2:30pm, cheer on dogs, cats, birds and more as they strut their stuff during the Pet Parade.

Voting is done by donation, so the rescue or shelter with the most money at 3:15pm is the winner of the Pet Parade. However, all the money raised goes directly back to the organizations.

 

So, if you give $100 to vote for a critter from your favorite rescue, rest assured! Your donation is going directly to them!
