The Fantastic Fur Frenzy pet fest Saturday in Round Rock will include these and other activities such as a vaccination clinic for pets, $10 microchipping, a dog walk competition, the opportunity to adopt animals from the Williamson County Regional Animal Shelter, carnival games and a silent auction.
The event, hosted by the Round Rock Police Department and Round Rock Operation Blue Santa, is from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday at the Lakeview Pavilion at Old Settlers Park at 3300 E. Palm Valley Blvd. It is a fundraiser for Operation Blue Santa.
The money raised will help needy families on Christmas and their pets.
Last year the group gave gifts to pets of needy families for the first time during Christmas, including food, tennis balls, toys and leashes, said Jeannette Paniagua, a Round Rock animal control officer. The organization was able to provide gifts to 78 animals, she said.
Several animal groups and businesses will be at the events with some of their critters, including the Austin Reptile Service, All Things Wild Rehabilitation Inc., DePaw Dog Sports and Training Academy, Round Rock Honey and Austin Guinea Pig Rescue.
