Bark A Thon on June 1st


Bark A Thon

The first annual Bark A Thon will be on Saturday, June 1, 2019 at the South Florida Fairgrounds from 9 am to 2 pm. This event is sponsored by the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office in conjunction with Big Dog Ranch Rescue. 

The purpose of this event is to adopt puppies and kittens, dogs and cats from area rescues and shelters. The groups that will be attending are some you may be familiar with and some of the smaller groups that have been invited to give them a chance to showcase their animals and their organization.

In previous years PBSO has presented the Run for the Animals and then Raining Cats and Dogs. These were more family events and were outdoors at Okeeheelee Park.  The change was made this year in order to have an event in the summer months, under air conditioning, solely for the purpose of adoptions. 

We have the larger rescues and shelters that will be there (Animal Care and Control, Furry Friends, Big Dog Ranch and Peggy Adams) and many of the smaller groups. There are over 20 signed up as of the beginning of May – and they represent both the canine and feline population.

Aside from the adoptions we will have animal related vendors for your shopping pleasure. Again, they are the smaller vendors that need and deserve more visibility in our community.

This is a free event for all – rescues, shelters, vendors and the community. Please put this on your calendar to attend.
