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!
