PetFest 2023

Sunday, June 25

Boone Woods Park

PetFest is always our largest fundraising event of the year. Besides having fun, the goal of PetFest is to raise awareness about animal life-saving activities in our region, connect people with area businesses and nonprofit organizations that share our love of animals, and generate funds for all FOTS programs. One hundred percent of the net proceeds will be used to support spay/neuter and other dog and cat programs that further our mission. Stop by the Silent Auction Tent for a free entry for a door prize for everyone in your party.

We also believe PetFest is a great opportunity to showcase nonprofit organizations and their adoptable animals, merchandise and humane education information. We invite and encourage local rescues to participate.

Send general email questions here. Following are ways you can help make PetFest a success whether you are a business, rescue or individual.
