Pawsome Easter Egg Hunt for Dogs!

Join us for a fantastic Easter Egg Hunt for your four-legged canine family members! The festivities begin at 1pm, but we'll have at least three different Easter egg hunts throughout the event. Some Easter eggs will have small pet-friendly treats inside of them, and others will have vouchers for larger prizes like dog toys and rawhide bones! Not only will this be a great enrichment opportunity for the dogs, it's a fun chance to work on scent work for more advanced pups.

We'll also have a doggie costume contest, and one of our photographer volunteers will be on hand for you to take photos with your pup or one of our shelter Easter Pups, complete with rabbit ears! ;)

It's just $5 for your first dog and $2 for each additional pup. All proceeds go directly to helping save the lives of MOAS shelter pets, so come out and have a blast with your pup while making a difference for shelter animals in your community. 

Schedule of Events:
1pm - Registration
1:15pm - 1st Egg Hunt
1:45pm - 2nd Egg Hunt
2:15 - Doggie Costume Contest
2:30 - Final Egg Hunt

Remember, for everyone's safety and to make sure no over-excited pups try to eat their Easter egg as well as the treat inside, all dogs must be on a leash at all times.

This event is also kid-friendly! We welcome our younger animal lovers, and we'll have some Easter candy on hand for them as well.
