We’ll be here with all the festivities from 1:00 - 4:00pm at our Pet Rescue & Resource Center at 21 Salt Creek Lane in Hinsdale.

Tickets are $20 for each person (13 and older) and includes 10 tickets to be used to pay for activities, beverages, and on-site raffles. Kids under 13 are free! Additional tickets will be available for purchase for $1 each at the gate.

In addition to the Pet Walk and scavenger hunt, kids can participate in the Kid’s Dash. By age groups of 5 and under, 6-9 and 10 and up, participants can show off their speed and race to the finish line. Winners will receive a prize! The Kid’s Dash will begin in waves at 1:30pm, starting with the youngest of the 3 age groups. The 1-mile Pet Walk begins at 2:00pm or as soon as the Kid's Dash is complete. 

Attendees will have fun photo opportunities, take a visit to the cat cove, shop raffles, tour our facility, play games and more!
