Clear the Shelters

TYLER, Texas (KETK) – Pet Supplies Plus will host a Pets in the Park event in Tyler at Bergfeld Park on Saturday, Sept. 18.

The event will be from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and will benefit the Humane Society’s Pets Fur People, a selective admission, life-sustaining animal sanctuary.

Pets Fur People said they are committed to reduce and eliminate euthanasia as an acceptable method of population control for unwanted dogs and cats.

At 10:30 there will be a blessing of the animals in the amphitheater. At 1 p.m. there will be an “Attractively Challenged” contest for pets that have a face “only a mother could love” and at 1:30 p.m. there will be a “Most Beautiful” contest. There is a $10 entry fee for each contest.

In addition to the contests there will be a weenie dog race. Trophies will be awarded for each race and the entry fee is $10.

The event will also provide microchipping for $25 and nail trims for $10.

There will also be a kids area with bounce houses, face painting and crafts.

The event has four rules:

  • Pets must have their rabies vaccination
  • Cats enter at their own risk
  • People must pick up after their pets
  • Bring a leash and good social manners.
