Looking for a new cat or dog to add to your family? Area rescue groups and pet vendors will gather together in Holland on Sunday, June 7th from noon to 4 pm. Tall dogs, short cats, black dogs, white cats, energetic pets and couch potatoes – you’ll have many pets to choose from at this year’s Petapalooza. Founded in May of 2004, this has become a yearly event to promote adoptable pets and educate the public about the plight of homeless animals.
In addition to adoptable animals and pet vendors, there will be educational booths, a raffle table (donations go to the Holland Police Department K9 Unit which is doing onsite demonstrations)…and Zeke the MSU Wonderdog!
Ultimate Air dogs will also be having a dock diving competition! For lunch, you can bring your own picnic lunch or Earl’s Meats will be selling hot dogs and pulled pork sandwiches in addition to chips and beverages.
The event is held at the West Ottawa Harbor Lights Stadium (football field) at 1024 136th Avenue in Holland and is presented by Mapleview Animal Hospital and Rally to Rescue. Please bring your leashed dogs to the event if you would like.
There is no admission or parking fees to attend. There are also no fees for the kids to play on the giant inflatables or for airbrush tattoos!
