The MVMF at the 2013 Pet-a-Palooza!

The MVMF at the 2013 Pet-a-Palooza!

The MVMF had it’s first general public outing at the Pet-a-Palooza  Event on

Saturday, June 29, 2013 at the MN State Fair grounds.

The MVMF ‘s first public appearance was a great success!!!  We reached out to around 4,000 pet lovers by displaying our logo, website, and engaging in conversation about the MVMF.  We offered very popular doggie snow cones, dog treats donated by Purina and a MVMF brochure.

The event featured live music, a kiddie area, many animal related booths, dog behaviorists, obstacle course, flyball demonstrations into a water tank and many many dogs came with their human friends!

Plan to come next year to this fun and free event and consider representing the MVMF at our booth!

A special thank you to the volunteers who made this event happen:
