At 10 a.m., the picnic kicks off with plenty of fun activities for humans and pets, including a 1-mile dog-friendly walk, a "best smile" and tail-wagging competition, and live entertainment. Attendees can also participate in a raffle or partake of food and treats for humans and pets. All proceeds will benefit The Animal Foundation and the Outside Las Vegas Foundation.
The Animal Foundation
The smile on a once-forlorn animal's face when it's united with new owners can't be matched, as the staff of The Animal Foundation knows well. What was once a tiny spay and neuter clinic when it opened in 1978 has grown into an 8-acre campus that shelters and cares for animals without a home. After a careful vetting process, families seeking four-legged companionship can find it here, relieving Dad from his duties of crawling around the house all day. The clinic still offers low-cost spay and neutering services, as well as vaccinations to prevent rabies and other diseases.
