Attendees are invited to bring their social canines on a leash downtown for water activities, product samples, treats, obedience training demonstrations, and more.

SPCA Florida will offer $10 microchips, a $15 savings, and its mobile Wellness Wagon will provide low cost vaccinations and preventive products. Owners can also help their dogs create “artwork” at SPCA Florida’s Paw Printing station and learn more about the non-profit’s community programs like Safety Net and Ani-Meals, which help keep pets in their homes.
My Pet’s Animal Hospital will provide The Hydration Station, a misting tent with wading pools for the pups, a drying off area, plus water for the two and four-legged attendees.
