Hall County Animal Shelter will host the first annual Furry Fall Festival Saturday, Sept. 30 at Laurel Park from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
“We are excited to be able to host this fall event and ring in the season with our community pet owners and soon-to-be pet owners,” Hall County Animal Services Director Trey Garcia said. “The Animal Shelter continues to strive for ways in which we can successfully enhance our relationships with the public, while providing education and services tailored to our pets.”
The event will have a designated adoption area full of adoptable dogs from the Hall County Animal Shelter, along with a free rabies vaccine clinic for guests to get their pets up-to-date on shots.
“One of our biggest focuses as a department is to ensure the public is educated on the importance of the rabies vaccine. Of course, rabies vaccines are available every week at the animal shelter, but this will be an opportunity for pet owners to keep their animals and the public safe at no charge to them,” Garcia said.
The Furry Fall Festival will have food trucks, vendors and a pet costume contest with a prize for first place.
Free vendor reservations are still being accepted with a donation made to the Hall County Animal Shelter. Anyone (art, pet-related, realtors, etc.) who may be interested in reserving a vendor’s slot is asked to contact Stephanie Maloch at firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
