Pinellas Pet News: Gulfport to host annual Get Rescued street fair | Pets
GULFPORT – The 16th annual Get Rescued Street Show is held on Beach Boulevard in downtown Gulfport on Saturday, February 22nd, 10 am-5pm.
Get Rescued is an animal rescue festival and fundraiser. Since its inception, the event has grown from a block and handful of animal rescue groups to a popular and festive event that represents rescue groups from across the region. It is one of the largest animal rescue events in the state. All income goes to the participating charitable rescue groups.
Animal rescue organizations, many of which perform with adoptable pets, are taking over Beach Boulevard to raise money and raise awareness of their causes. In addition, animal-related suppliers, artists and craftsmen offer their goods to festival visitors.
Pet-related activities include animal care training, pet services, a pet food and supply drive, animal rescue groups, free samples, food, and more. Each year, thousands of participants, many of whom are accompanied by their own canine companions, head to Gulfport to partake in a popular tradition. Well behaved pets and their leashed people are welcome. The event is free and open to the public.
