GSRNE will be at 25th Annual Pet Rock Festival taking place on Sunday, September 10, at SAC Park in Shrewsbury from noon to 5 p.m.
Pet Rock Fest continues to put the spotlight on the animal welfare organizations of New England that work tirelessly to promote kindness to animals.
Located in the heart of Massachusetts close to several main arteries (including Route 9 and I-290), the venue is easily accessible from points east, west, north and south. Also, the venue offers an expansive, grassy, fenced-in event area, two pavilions, the main building (with a bar that will be open for drinks), and hundreds of parking spaces right on the premises. It is ideal for both people and animals.
In fact, there is plenty of space to trot back with all of our popular attractions and more-including: K9 demos; an agility course hosted by CMDART; the Pups In The Air disc dog team; live music; the Rescue Groups and Shelters Pet Parade; kids activities, cat photo contest; book signings, annual Pet Rock Hero awards; speakers; amateur dog contest; vegetarian food court; animal mascots, doggie massages, demonstrations, free and low-cost microchipping and rabies shots from VCA; a doggie water park; photos of your pets; animal-friendly vendors; animal welfare organizations; and, most importantly, hundreds of nonprofit groups devoted to animal welfare causes.
Local nonprofit VegFest continues to partner with Pet Rock Fest to host its food court, packed with offerings from amazing vegan restaurants and food vendors.
Pet Rock Fest will send updates with event schedules, attractions, vendors and sponsors. The nonprofit gives its proceeds to worthy animal related charities that support a variety of causes, from shelters to law reform to farm animal sanctuaries.
Anyone interested in volunteering for, performing at, or taking part in the festival in any way (including vendors and sponsors) should contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
