Charleston Air Force Base Pet Fest

The Charleston Air Force Base is currently planning its inaugural "PetFest 2008", which will be held on Saturday, September 27th, from 10 am to 2 pm. PetFest 2008 is designed to entertain and educate our military, civilian employees, retirees, and their families (including the four-legged ones!) about pets of all kinds; all the while benefitting local charities.

Plans include having a number of rescue groups in attendance with dogs (and a few cats) available for adoption, a variety of contests in which pets can compete, agility demonstrations, canine good citizen tests, a variety of doorprizes, and the opportunity for pups to take swimming lessons in our pool. CAFB will also be offering K-9 demonstrations, a display of indigenous wildlife and reptiles, and the base vet clinic will be providing microchipping services. As a "price of admission" all attendees are asked to bring a bag or cans of dog/cat food for our local shelters to aid in the wake of recent surrenders.

Please note that this event is NOT open to the public. Base credentials are required for access.
