PetFest 2024

September 15

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 activities in our region, connect people with area businesses and nonprofit organizations, 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.

We also believe PetFest is a great opportunity to showcase our shelters and nonprofit organizations and their adoptable animals. 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.
