Get Rescued in Gulfport
Gulfport’s Get Rescued, the animal rescue festival and fundraiser, is preparing for its 13th annual event Saturday (Feb. 25). It is one of the largest animal rescue events in the state.
GULFPORT – This popular event has evolved from one block and a handful of animal rescue groups in its first year to a popular and festive event representing rescue groups from throughout the region.
Gulfport’s Get Rescued is one of the largest animal rescue events in the state, with all profits to benefit participating non-profit rescue groups. From 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., animal rescue organizations, many appearing with adoptable pets, take over Beach Boulevard to raise money and awareness for their causes. Gulfport’s Get Rescued is sponsored by the Gulfport Merchant’s Assoc.
Additionally, animal-related vendors, artists and crafters offer their wares to festival-goers. Pet Related activities will include an adoptable pet parade, pet care education, pet services, a pet food and supplies drive, animal rescue groups, free samples, training demos, a Bark-B-Que, food, DJ music and more. Each year, thousands of attendees, many accompanied by their own critter companions, make their way to Gulfport to participate in what has become a beloved tradition.
Well behaved pets and their leashed people are welcome! The daytime event is free for the public to attend, with plenty of free parking in and around the area.
