Gulfport Goes to the Dogs (and Cats) on Saturday
This is the 11th year for Gulfport’s “Get Rescued” street fair for pet rescues, one of the largest animal rescue events in Florida.
GULFPORT – “Get Rescued” has evolved from one block and a handful of animal rescue groups in its first year to a popular and festive event representing as many as 60 animal rescue groups from throughout the region. Sponsored by the Gulfport Merchants Association, “Get Rescued” is one of the largest animal rescue events in the state, with all profits to benefit participating non-profit rescue groups.
Animal rescue organizations, many with adoptable pets, take over Beach Boulevard to raise money and awareness for their causes. Additionally, animal-related vendors, artists and crafters offer their wares to festivalgoers. Pet-related activities will include a pet parade with domestic and adoptable pets, pet care education, pet services, a pet food and supplies drive, animal rescue groups, free samples, training demos, canine massage, food, music and games. The daytime event is free for the public to attend, with plenty of free parking in and around the area. “Get Rescued” will run 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday (Feb. 28) in the Historic Gulfport Waterfront District, 3129 Beach Blvd. S. Well behaved pets and their leashed people are welcome.
Get Rescued will be followed Saturday evening by the Tails at Twilight fundraiser for animal rescues.
