Our annual fall festival is our largest fundraiser and all proceeds help to sustain our mission of helping animals throughout most of the year. It has grown from a small dog walk with a few booths to a wonderful day long event which features educational speakers, music, entertainment, over 90+ people/pet vendors, food, microchip clinic, a large silent auction, contests, pet adoptions and more. 

Please join us for a fun-filled day with something to do for everyone!
