When the leaves have turned color and we’ve pulled out the winter blankets, our days are shorter and our pets are cuddling closer, Fall is here. This doesn’t mean that there are less things to do. November is full of educational, exciting, and silly pet events. Looking for something to do on the weekends when the kids are home from school, you have the day off, and your dog has some energy to burn?
Check out some of the events listed below and if you’re not near 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!

Little overdue with vaccines for your pet? Head to Bark and Bath and get low-cost rabies and distemper shots for your pets. There’s no appointment necessary. They will also have heart-worm pills and other supplies on hand for you to purchase if you need to restock.
The Dash 5K and Doggie Fun Run
Race or walk a 5K with your friendly pup and help raise money for a local rescue. You’ll run through scenic Rock Creek Park. After the run there will be fun and silliness with some vendors and contests. Enter the costume contest and see if you win!
Santa Paws Photos
Need new pics to send out as cards this year? Then come down to Pendleton King Park and have your pet pose with Santa! Photos are $10 and there is also going to be a puppy bake sale and some other goodies for sale. Money raise goes to help local rescue groups rehome homeless pets.
Santa Paws Comes to Town
Ok, don’t tell your pup but there will be several santas out and about in Portland and Beaverton at Fred Meyers Grocery stores. Bring your dog to tell Santa what a good pup he’s been and what he wants this year for Chistmas. All proceeds go to help Oregon Humane Society. For locations, check their website link above.
Come on down for a fun day of raffles, contests, and laughter. Woofstock is a day of music and raising money for disabled vets with service animals. You’ll meet plenty of people who love animals and work in the pet services industry. Your dog could get a massage, see a psychic, and compete to be top dog.
