Thank you to everyone who came out to Petapolooza!

This years Petapolooza Event was held on Saturday May 28th, 2016 at Grand Valley Park upper area of the leash free area Concession 3, west of Valley Farm Road. This years event was a huge success with over 300 people attending and a total of $3,700 raised to help bring us one step closer to building our own permanant Animal Shelter. 
Browse through our photo gallery to see what a great time everyone had.  If you missed out on this years event, don't worry we've already started to plan for next years Petapolooza event.
Photo Gallery: Animal Services - Petapolooza 2016 will appear here on the public site.

Event History

Each year, as part of Responsible Pet Ownership Month, the City of Pickering hosts Petapolooza, Pickering's Pet Tradeshow. Petapolooza brings together pet enthusiasts within our community and gives them an opportunity to meet industry professionals, rescue groups, and others in the pet industry.

All proceeds from the tradeshow go towards the development of a permanent Animal Shelter to enable us to continue to care and house sick and injured animals for years to come.
  • This event is free to the public, however we request a voluntary donation of $2.
  • Dogs are welcome and must be on leash unless in the lower level of the leash free area.
  • Specific activities included pet stenciling, nail trims, live turtles and much more!
