Bring your pets to the annual Bow-Wows and Meows Pet Fair Sunday at Hart Park. A fun dog show will award $50 gift certificates to winners.

L.A. County shelter animals will get a second chance at finding a forever home while pet lovers enjoy family-friendly fun at  the 8th Annual Bow-Wows & Meows Pet Fair on Sunday, at Newhall’s Hart Park.

The 2007 Bow-Wows & Meows Pet Fair drew thousands of attendees from all over Los Angeles County and resulted in the adoption of more than 100 dogs and cats from local shelters.

“Last year was a little scary because of the (Interstate 5) tunnel fire on the same weekend, but we not only ended up with record attendance, we adopted out almost all the animals at the fair that day,” said Bow-Wows & Meows founder and president Yvonne Allbee.

Whether attendees are looking to adopt a pet or not, Bow-Wows & Meows provides a great activity for the whole family. Free to the public, popular events at Bow-Wows & Meows include:

n The Famous Fun Dog Show — Competitions for categories such as Biggest/Smallest, Best Vocalist, Longest Tail/Largest Ears, Mystery Mutt, Fluffiest, Most Physically Challenged, Silly Pet Trick, Owner/Pet Look-Alike and more ($10 entry fee — winners receive $50 gift certificates from Saugus’ Pet Supply)
n “Dogs Can Dance” demos
n Pet photographer
n Low-cost vaccine clinic and ID tags
n Samples and info on the latest, greatest products and services from pet vendors

Bow-Wows & Meows also offers Kids Zone rides, tasty people food, exciting raffles, and giveaways galore. All proceeds from the event go directly to Bow-Wows & Meows, a Valencia-based 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose mission states “through education, awareness and inspiration, we will one day have more loving homes than homeless pets.”

“Bow-Wows & Meows was created in the hopes that people in the community would be willing to adopt a shelter animal if they knew how many great pets needed a good home,” Allbee said.
