Boone County Pawapalooza and K9 5k Run/Walk

This duo was dressed for Election Day at last year’s Pawapalooza!

This Saturday, September 28th, the Boone County Animal Shelter is hosting the 2nd annual Pawapalooza.  The day begins at 8:30 AM at Idlewild Park in Burlington, KY where you can run or walk the K9 5K, with or without your cuddly companion.  Activities for the whole family continue from 10 AM to 6 PM at the Boone County Fairgrounds.

The weather is looking perfect for the line-up of events that the Pawapalooza has for its visitors.  Pawapalooza will include concerts, animal adoptions, a silent auction, concessions and vendors, costume and dog agility contests, games and inflatables for the kids, and much more!  5K registration will be $25 at the event.  Pawapalooza is $5, with children 12 and under getting in free!

Recently,  the Boone County Animal Shelter made the commitment to eliminate euthanasia of all treatable animals.  Cheers to the Boone County Animal Shelter for making this commitment!  However, such a commitment has resulted for a need for more resources, time, and support, especially financial support. Pawapalooza raises funds for the medical treatment fund for these animals. Are you ready to spend a gorgeous fall afternoon of fun to help the Boone County Animal Shelter continue saving the lives of sick and injured homeless animals in Boone County?
