Calling All Animal Ambassadors! Join the Get Rescued Paw-ty of the Year! Are you a pet-loving pal with a passion for making a difference? Mark your calendars for Saturday, February 24, 2024, and join us for the 20th Annual Get Rescued Animal Rescue Festival & Fun-raiser in Downtown Gulfport!

This year, we're wagging our tails extra wide as we celebrate two decades of finding fur-ever homes for animals in need. It's a heart-warming celebration filled with tail wags, happy meows, and enough good vibes to melt even the coldest of hearts.

Here's a taste of the paw-ty fun:

Meet & Mingle with Adorable Adoptables: Up to 50 rescue groups will be showcasing their adoptable cuties, from playful pups to purrfect kitties, and everything in between. Find your furever friend and give them a loving home! Shop from Paw-some Vendors: Browse unique pet-themed goodies, crafts, artwork, and accessories from pet-friendly vendors. You'll find everything from stylish leashes and cozy beds to fun toys and delicious treats. Learn & Be Entertained: Dive into pet care workshops, watch exciting animal training demos, root for the Florida Weiner Dog Derby, and cheer in adorable costume contests. There's something for everyone (even feather-brained friends)! Fill Your Heart & Donate Supplies: Help support the cause by contributing to our pet food and supplies drive. Every little bit helps these amazing rescue groups continue their incredible work. Fun for the Whole Pack: Bring the entire family, including your own well-behaved furry friends (on leashes, please!). Let your pups play, your kitties socialize, and enjoy a day of community and compassion. Here's how you can be a part of the paw-sitivity:

Be a Vendor: Showcase your pet-related business and connect with a passionate audience of animal lovers. Donate Supplies: Every bag of kibble, cozy blanket, and squeaky toy makes a difference! Volunteer Your Time: Lend a paw and help spread the love at this heartwarming event. Share the News: Spread the word and get all your fur-iends excited about the Get Rescued Festival! Together, we can make this the biggest and most impactful Get Rescued event yet! Join us in Downtown Gulfport from 10 AM to 5 PM on February 24th.

Admission is free, parking is plentiful, and the love is endless! See you there!

P.S. Don't forget to follow us on social media for paw-some updates and share your Get Rescued memories using #GetRescuedParty!
