Paws Doggie Bags!

The first 250 guests to stop by one of The Pet Project’s booths and donate $10 or more will receive a free Doggie Bag, which guests can take around to participating businesses to collect treats for their canine companions.  Guests will also be able to register for great prizes such as trips and tickets to local attractions.

The Pet Project helps to keep pets and their caregivers together by providing pet food and pet supplies to food shelves.  They offer quarterly low-cost vaccination clinics and provide information about other programs that provide reduced-cost veterinary care.

Pet Photo Contest

Do you have the cutest pet on all of Grand Avenue? Of course you do! Event goers can enter the Pet Photo Contest throughout the day by getting their pet's portrait taken at Keller Williams - The Odd Couple Team, located at 1460 Grand Ave.  The top 5 photos will be chosen and uploaded to Facebook, and voting will take place on the Paws on Grand Facebook page.  Grand Avenue businesses are offering up gift cards and prizes for the photo that gets the most votes!
