The shortest month of year is going to be one of the most pet friendly ones ever! There are so many cool events for you and your pets to head to and meet others who love their pets just like you do. It might be cold outside, but that shouldn’t keep you from having fun. From dog shows, to adoption events, to fundraisers, February is going to be a busy!
Check out the events listed and if you’re not near any of these, check with your local humane society and newspaper for local pet events.
With so many pet events across the country, this list can’t be quite comprehensive – at least not without your help. Is your pet event, or one in your area, missing from our list? Please help us update this list to keep it current by leaving the information in a comment below!
