Irving’s Dog Park will be transformed into an amusement park for canines during Pet Pawlooza.
Pet Pawlooza will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. March 28 at the Irving Animal Care Campus (IACC), 4140 Valley View Lane. Pet Pawlooza, which celebrates the fifth anniversary of the Irving Animal Care Campus, will be a day filled with fun for the whole family. Admission to the Pet Pawlooza is free. To celebrate the Irving Animal Care Campus’ Fifth anniversary, Irving Animal Services and DFW Humane Society will have $5 adoptions for dogs and cats.
Pet Pawlooza is the pinnacle of pet-friendly entertainment. Dogs of all breeds, ages and sizes will enjoy an atmosphere that can best be described as a canine-friendly amusement park. The canine-carnival will feature live music, demonstrations, pet product vendors, fabulous food vendors, games and fun for your dog as well as low-cost vaccinations and free microchipping (while supplies last). Donations collected on event day will benefit IACC animals.
Attending dogs must be on a leash with up-to-date vaccinations. Complimentary shuttle service will be available to transport attendees to Pet Pawlooza from the SanMar Distribution Center parking lot, 4701 Northview Drive, as IACC parking is expected to fill up quickly. The IACC, which is a cooperative partnership between the City of Irving’s Animal Services Department and the DFW Humane Society, is open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday. Adoptions must be processed 30 minutes before closing.
