Please mark your calendars for the 14th Annual Pet Fest on Saturday, October 15, 2016!
The Community helps us generate much-needed funds as we celebrate the human-animal bond. All proceeds raised go to PALS' spay/neuter programs, pet pantry, TNRM, and humane education. The festival is located in the park by the beautiful San Marcos River with events throughout the San Marcos Plaza Pavilion Park (located at 401 East Hopkins Street). Admission is free, but it is requested that attendees bring a donation of dry pet food. Cash donations are also accepted and all contributions are tax-deductible.
