Petapalooza is a free event that features lovable, adoptable homeless animals from shelters and rescues in the Central PA area.
We focus on ALL animal rescues at Petapalooza. In 2017, we had almost fifty groups featuring dogs, cats, birds and more! In addition to helping animal rescues, we also focus on being an animal-friendly festival with vendors, raffles, live music, Barkby Plunger's Dog Course Luring, food trucks and The Pet Parade to raise additional money for the animal shelters and rescues.

We were proud to present the following groups and organizations that attended Petapalooza on May 20, 2017.
Check out their websites to see how you can help them in their mission or support their business.
RESCUES & SHELTERS
Furry Friends Network
It's All Greek to You **Food Truck**
Kona Ice **Food Truck**
Mad Dash Food Truck **Food Truck**
Rescues and Shelters have a chance to showcase their adoptable animals and raise money for their organizations.
At 12:00pm and 1:45pm, cheer on dogs, cats, birds and animals of all kinds as they strut their stuff during the Pet Parade.
Voting is done by donation, so the rescue or shelter with the most money at 2:15pm is the winner of the Pet Parade. And even better, all the money raised goes directly back to the organizations.
So, if you give $100 to vote for a critter from your favorite rescue, rest assured! Your donation is going directly to them!
In addition to all the amazing Rescues, Shelters and Vendors, we also feature a lot of family fun! With our Pet Parade, live music, Barkby Plunger's Dog Course Luring, games and raffle, we have something for all ages. Plus! All families are more than welcome to bring their furry family members. As long as they're well behaved, vaccinated and leashed!
Thank you, Tamar, for all the amazing photos!
