1. Pet adoption drives
There will be several adoption drives happening on all three days of the weekend, so you can be sure that there will be plenty of new furry friends for you to befriend and fall in love with! With dogs, cats, and small animals up for adoption, who knows? You might even be taking furkid home with you!

2. Weekend market
Don’t want to compromise on retail therapy? We don’t either. Paw Fest’s weekend market will see vendors selling not just chic pet accessories to spoil your pets silly, but services like pet massages, pet illustrations, and photography as well. If you’d like to do your part for the shelter furkids, you may also hop on over to our Painting with Pooches booths where you can create a masterpiece (with the art supplies provided) and have it “stamped” by your pooch’s paw! 100% of the profit will be donated to the shelters.

3. Movie screening
On Friday and Saturday evening, cosy up next to your furkid while watching a movie together under the stars. Want to know what films we’ll be screening? Check back on Facebook for the latest updates. (See link below.)

4. Vet and trainer sessions
Learn all about your pets from the experts of the field, as they answer your burning questions and dispense lots of tips to make paw-renting easier. Be sure to bring a pen and notebook with you to take down any information that you find useful!

5. Doggy food preparation demo
Love the idea of cooking up a storm for Fido but not sure how to start? We’ve got you covered! In this doggy food tutorial, learn how to whip up some simple dishes that are as tasty as they are dog-friendly.
