The Riverview Recreation Department has partnered with the Wyandotte Animal Adoption Center and Pound Pals Downriver to put on Pets in the Park. This event aims to raise money for animals in the shelter, primarily ones in need of medicine and other types of treatments before they can be adopted. This event will have a variety of activities, such as; a Dog walk around our reflection pond, a dog contest with, 9 categories, and small games such as Hotdog Bobbing and Peanut Butter Licking. This event will also include a variety of vendors to fit all your pets’ needs! There will also be raffles going on, through pound pals, and there will be animals from the shelter there, in hopes they get adopted!
Pets must be licensed and vaccinated.
