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.

On June 13, 2015, we had over 100 animal shelters, rescues, and vendors join us, and nearly 2,000 people attended the festival which featured dogs, cats, birds, goats, pigs, bunnies, raffles, Barkby Plunger's Dog Course Luring, food trucks, face painting, contests, a dog show, and so much more!

 

Interested in joining us? Contact our team through the volunteer area.

who CAME IN 2015?

Best Friends Furever is proud to present the following Rescue, Shelter and Animal Welfare Groups that came to Petapalooza on June 13.

 

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

 

If you'd like to participate, please email our Shelter & Rescue Groups Committee at rescuegroups@bffpa.org.

So many happy dogs took a run on the dog lure course, and Barkby Plungers generously donated 50% of the proceeds back to Petapalooza.

 

THANK YOU, DORI!!
