Pet Events

I have found it almost impossible to locate a calendar of all the wonderful pet events going on in the triangle. Many of them are annual events but the exact date changes each year. I am going to attempt to catalog them and update the actual dates as they are announced. Any non profit, pet related event will be included with the exception of rescue specific adopt a thons. While these are definitely important events, they occur very, very frequently by multiple rescues and I am afraid they would make it too difficult to locate the other events. If you are looking for an adoption event, I suggest visiting the website for the specific rescue of interest, petfinder's calendar, and/or Animall.

Please feel free to reply to this blog with events. Please be sure to include the type of event, date and time. If a link is available, please include that as well.
