Calling all canines

Posted By on Sat, May 5, 2012 at 6:00 AM

Most pet owners know and understand the importance of keeping their fur babies happy. Walking, petting and chasing are all easy ways to entertain, but every now and then, it's nice to mix things up. After all, you don't want your canine feeling any older in dog years than they already are.

Humane Society of Charlotte's annual Pet Palooza does the trick. It's a festival specifically for four-legged creatures and their caregivers. Featuring a 5K run and dog walk, as well as vendors, a canine fashion show and more, the event raises money to help animals in need. For more information, visit www.humanesocietyofcharlotte.org. Free admission; $15-$25 to walk/run. 8 a.m. Independence Park, 300 Hawthorne Lane.
