Get Rescued in Gulfport Today
The annual Gulfport’s Get Rescued festival and fundraiser benefits animal rescue groups. It is one of the largest animal rescue events in Florida.
GULFPORT – The 16th Annual Gulfport’s Get Rescued, the animal rescue festival and fundraiser, kicks off at 10 a.m. today (Feb. 22).
The event, one of the largest animal rescue events in Florida, will run until 6 p.m. around 3101 Beach Blvd. S, in Gulfport. All profits benefit participating non-profit rescue groups. 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.
This 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.
Animal rescue organizations, many appearing 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, food, music and more.
Each year, thousands of attendees, many accompanied by their own canine companions, make their way to Gulfport to participate in what has become a beloved tradition.
