Registration is $8 per pet or $15 group rate. All registered pets will receive a 2009 pet banana, goodie bag, and event portrait by deb swanger photography. It’s a fun time for the whole family with pumpkin painting, face painting, live concert by the Surf Ratz, raffles, & doggie ice cream social. Visit pet related stands and local pet rescues around the park and new this year, come hungry as local Mount Joy restaurants will be selling a delicious selection of finger foods. We will be collecting pet food & new toys, beds, towels, etc at registration for local rescues. Each item enters you into a drawing for additional prizes.
