The event will be fun for all ages with animals ready for adoption, a doggy fashion parade and dog demonstrations including agility and flyball races.
The King County Library system will host the kids' corner while outside there will be a story walk featuring the book, "Don't Lick the Dog" by Bellevue author Wendy Wahman. King County Animal Control and Care, Homeward Pet Adoption Center, MEOW Cat Rescue and N.O.A.H. will bring a variety of animals for adoption.
"Pets have become an important part of our families over the last decade," said Teri Burke, a program coordinator for Redmond. "The goal of this event is to celebrate the joy pets bring to our lives."
The event will also include information and advice for the animal owner, prospective animal owner or those who just love pets. Local trainers, boarding facilities representatives and veterinarians will be available.
A new feature at this year's event is professional pet portraits by Chara Michele Photography. While there will be a fee for this service, they will have many reasonably priced packages to choose from.
Well-mannered, house-trained pets on a six-foot or shorter leash are welcome.For more information, contact the RSC at (425) 556-2314 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
