Event: Pawlooza is the ultimate dog party!!! It’s a festival for dogs and animal lovers! Join an estimated 25,000 people and 6,000 dogs for Canada‘s most unique and dog-friendly festival experience. Take your dog dock diving, go swimming in the Pawlooza pond, test your dog’s agility, go offleash in the FunZone, get trick advice, get obedience advice, get readings from a pet psychic, run the lure course, learn about pet first aid, watch agility demonstrations…shop from 175 vendors, get great deals by bidding on silent auction items, and load up on free samples. We’ve packed as much fun into one day as possible…there isn’t a better place to spoil your dog!
In honour of International Homeless Animals’ Day, Pawlooza has partnered with animal rescue groups from across Canada. These rescue groups are given free space to come to Pawlooza, show off their adoptables, fundraise, network, and help raise awareness about Canada’s pet overpopulation. — tk
From California to Thailand and Kentucky to Kuwait, there are 25 states and 18 countries around the world holding events today for International Homeless Pets Day. Since 1992 International Society for Animal Rights has promoted this day to educate people about homeless animals and pet overpopulation. Check out the Event Schedule posted on ISAR’s website. This is big, really big. It’s been said on CO before and it is worth repeating, Shelter Puppies are the Best Puppies! (Kitties TOO! All the pets!)
Here are a few more examples of shelters holding special events in honor of the day:
