If you don’t already have a pet, there will be on-site adoption opportunities from Animals R First Fund and Hope to Home for Cats. There will be a food vendors for all human attendees, including the Baby’s Bad-Ass Burgers and the Rolling Sushi Truck. To cool the humans off, Snowie’s California will have their shaved ice on sale including a syrup station to put your own flavors on the icy treat.
