Join us for Pet Palooza 2022 - the first time we'll be celebrating our annual Pet Palooza Walk and Festival in person after two years of virtual events! Not only will we be back together in person, but we will also be celebrating at our new Animal Resource Center, opening in Spring 2022! Plus, Pet Palooza was voted Runner Up Best Festival by the Charlotte Magazine BoB Awards!
WHAT IS PET PALOOZA: Pet Palooza, our annual fundraising walk, and community festival has been a staple of the Charlotte community for over 20 years. Featuring live music, food trucks, pet-loving vendors, and fun for the whole family, Pet Palooza is a mainstay of our organization. While the festival is free to attend, those who wish to participate in the quarter-mile pup strut must register ahead of time.
ABOUT THE WALK: Join us for the Pet Palooza Fundraising Walk, kicking off at 11 am on May 14. You can start a team, walk solo, or simply donate to the fundraising walk! This year, we hope to raise over $150,000 to help the people and pets in our community and we can't do it without you.
PRIZES AND CONTESTS: Prizes will be awarded to the following:
- Top adult fundraiser (13+)
- Top youth fundraiser (12 and under)
- Top fundraising team
Our famous Pet Palooza costume contest is back in action this year! Prizes will be awarded for the following categories:
Best Dressed: Does your pet enjoy dressing up? Show off their style for a chance to win!
