(Toronto Canada) – Announcing… a full two days of interspecies interactivity!

Now in its second year, PetFunFest & Adopt A Pet-a-thon is a one-of-a-kind public event at Downsview Park that will bring together animal lovers and pet welfare communities for a tail-wagging, illuminating experience. It’s a rewarding, bonding atmosphere where dogs and their humans directly participate in dog-centric activities.

All ages are invited to meet and learn about pets of all descriptions, from pocket pets to big best friends. The overriding objective: to spread awareness of the wonderful world of companion animals and to help homeless pets.

The kick-off “ Best Friends” fundraiser, celebrating the milestone of having rescued 5,000 pets in need. The event is hosted by A Touch of Love® Inc., in support of Helping Homeless Pets Inc., on Friday, February 11, 2011 at 6:00 p.m. In Studio 3, Downsview Park (40 Carl Hall Road)

Attractions include: The high-flying actions of Ontario Dock Dogs (a World Qualifier event). The Dock Dogs will present the Big Air Wave competition, accompanied by an Extreme Vertical & Speed Retrieve competition for both competitors & spectators to enjoy.

The Canine High Jump show: watch them soar over a horizontal bar.

Canine Free-style dance show: watch pros in action and bust a move with your four-legged friend.

Parade of Rescues: Meet wonderful cats & dogs for adoption, including pure breeds.
“Adopt a four-legged Torontonian today.”

Also featured
: Vendors, fully-fenced off-leash play area, guest speakers, education, pet rescue & pet safety seminars.  PLUS – with an eye on the Guinness Book – there’ll be an attempt at a Canadian record for the largest simultaneous mass “Stay” with some 200 dogs.

Helping Homeless Pets (HHP) - Charitable Registration No. 84972 2954 RR0001 - was founded in December 2006 as a non-profit charitable company to support pet rescue groups across Canada.  There are far too many pets that need help and too few resources for overburdened volunteers.  HPP’s belief is that ” every pet deserves to live in a safe, loving home.”
