There are many pet events coming up in Colorado. Most of them are fundraisers or holiday-themed, or both. If you’re on a skiing trip in the region, why not stop by a pet event! Many shopping opportunities are available for the upcoming holiday season.
Holiday Gifts for Pets and Their People
November 7, 8
This is a holiday craft event for humans and pets. It features all hand-made crafts and animal-related activities, and it is a fundraiser for nonprofit animal rescue organizations around Colorado. It is open to the public, and pets are welcome, so long as they are leashed or caged. It will go on from 10:00 AM-3:00 PM. Don’t worry about cold weather, because it will go on in a climate-controlled greenhouse.
Spring a Spaniel
Parking Lot: 1801 California Street
This is a free event from 11:30 AM-1:30 PM, and is a benefit for the Table Mountain Animal Shelter. There will be a bunch of adoptable cats and dogs, and adoption fees range from $80-150, depending on the pet’s age and size. That is a good deal, as all of these animals include having been fixed, vaccinated, microchipped and have a free vet visit. There will also be hot chocolate and hot dogs served for cold weather refreshments.

Frisco Historical Park
This event will occur from 10:00 AM-3:00 PM, and is $22 for LAPS members, $24 for nonmembers. You and your family and dog can get a lovely holiday picture this year with Santa AND the Grinch!
