Toby's Pet Parade & Fair a Huge Success
First Annual Event Raises $46,000
Hundreds of animal lovers and their dogs in costumes gathered at the Jefferson County Fairgrounds on Saturday, September 17, raising more than $46,000. The funds raised will provide essential medical, behavioral and life-saving care for the homeless pets at Foothills Animal Shelter.

Toby's Pet Parade & Fair drew a crowd of more than 500 people and more than 140 dogs dressed up in their best and most creative costumes. In addition to the parade, attendees enjoyed a fair with carnival-style games, dog agility and flyball demonstrations, family-friendly activities and vendor booths!

It was such a blast overall, and we want to thank everyone who participated in the Parade and/or attended the Parade and Fair, as well as all of our amazing sponsors and vendors! We already can't wait for next year!
