Come enjoy PET FEST, our 17th year of celebrating animals and saving their lives. This event benefits PALS (Prevent A Litter of Central Texas) an outstanding organization that strives to end pet overpopulation and pet homelessness by promoting responsible pet ownership through educational and spay/neuter programs, pet food pantry, cat rescue and adoptions. PET FEST is a free event, but a donation of pet food would be greatly appreciated. PET FEST is happening at 401 Hopkins Street in our beautiful San Marcos Plaza Park by the lovely San Marcos River. Mark your calendar for October 19, 2019 for a memorable day of fun from 10 am to 5 pm. The day will begin with the opening ceremonies. At the event, there will be the blessing of the animals, animal parades, live music, a silent auction, merchandise and food vendors, kids’ activities, arts and crafts, a pet costume contest and a K9 demonstration. Bring your pet; costumes are encouraged. Our costume contests and races will take place throughout the day with the entries for pet costume, pet trick, theme, and sit and stay competition. In addition, there will be a meet and greet the homeless pets from shelters and rescues who are waiting to be adopted.
