Pet Palooza WALK FOR THE ANIMALS
A Record-Breaking Day at Pet Palooza!
On Saturday April 9th, our annual Pet Palooza Walk for the Animals event, presented by Lake Norman Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, Hill’s Pet Nutrition and Gastonia Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, rocked Independence Park.
The event grossed more than $150,000, which is our best result EVER. The 2K Walk for the Animals kicked off the day, with the largest group of walkers to date, who raised more funds than ever before!
The festival was a huge success as well, with more than 4,000 attendees, and take it straight from the dog’s mouth…..they all had a barkin’ good time! And why wouldn’t they? There was something for everyone. For the shoppers, there were more than 95 vendors. For the kids, there was face painting and caricatures. For the pups, there were pet contests, the Zoom Room agility ring and lots and lots of other dogs to ‘sniff’.
Special thanks go out to our TV sponsor for the event, WBTV and our two spectacular hosts for the festival and walk, Kristen Miranda and Lyndsay Tapases. Thank you also to our great radio sponsors, I Heart Media, 96.1 and 102.9 The Lake. Thanks for partnering throughout the year with our organization!
This event would not have been possible without the support of all our community, but most especially our sponsors.
