Lots of activities took place during the 9th annual Paws n’ Claws Pet Fair, held September 13 by Apple Valley Animal Services.
People got to bring their pets to Apple Valley Civic Center park to enjoy the day.
Pet contests included flyball, artwork, small dog races and a doggie fashion show.
Dog licensing, pet adoptions, vendors, food, low-cost vaccines, microchipping, contests, demos, snake avoidance training and other services and educational opportunities were featured.
There were many vendors, including Woof Gang, PJ’s Pals, Mustang Spirit Rescue, plus local veterinarians, pet supplies, food manufacturers, and more.
The art contest categories included animal-themed crafts using beads, quilting and fabric, creatively used recycled materials, drawings, paintings, photos, and sculpture.
Humans and animals alike all had a great time!
