If you haven't attended a PetFest before or just want to see what's new, here's the scoop.
When you arrive at the park, head for the Silent Auction Tent to get your program and free Door Prize ticket. Tickets go to every human in your party. Sorry not pets. If you are a FOTS member you've already been assigned a number. Attending gets you another ticket.
Take a look through the program for the advertisers. Some have coupons. You'll also find the times for the activities, contests and drawings in the Silent Auction Tent.
Then feel free to walk around the park
Booths will be lined up on both sides of the promenade. There will be:
Local Rescues and County Shelters with adoptable pets.
Vendors with all types of products: Businesses such as Doggie Paddles, Faithful Friends, Feeders Supply, Fetch PetCare, Hebron Chiropractic, Hebron Veterinary, Joseph Subaru, Linneman Pet Services, Wattycat Designs, just to name a few past vendors.
We have a food court with refreshments - hot dogs, chips, pizza, bakery, drinks.
All proceeds go to FOTS
At the far end, near the restrooms, contests will be held for your dogs, sponsored by Dog Abilities.
Check the program for times
Then back to the Silent Auction tent. Companies and members of Friends of the Shelter donate all types of items, not all pet related. 100% of what you spend funds our spay/neuter and other programs.
Silent Auction - You'll find gift baskets, gift cards, event tickets and certificates. Enter your bid on the sheet for the item(s) you want. Check back to see if you've been outbid.
We will call or text you if you win so you don't have to be in the tent. Items not picked up at the event can be picked up at a residence in Burlington at a later date.
Online Auction - We are holding an Online Auction with many more items including event tickets and gift cards. You will be able to preview these items before the auction starts. Visit https://www.32auctions.com/PetFest2023 around mid June.
Door Prize Drawing - there will be at least 1 drawing.
Ticket To Win It - Buy your tickets $5 for 10 tickets. Drop tickets in the bags for the gift cards you want to win.
Split the Pot - Buy a ticket to win half of the pot.
T-Shirts and Magnets - As always we will be selling our popular PetFest T-shirts and car magnets.
POOLS - On the far side of the tent we hope to have our usual pools to keep dogs cool.
