Pet-Palooza scheduled for Sept. 25 in Orland Township
Orland Township’s Pet-Palooza returns on September 25!
Orland Township’s 9th Annual Pet-Palooza is scheduled for Saturday, September 25, from noon to 3 p.m. on the Orland Township grounds, 14807 S. Ravinia Ave., Orland Park! This is a rain or shine event. Supervisor Paul O’Grady and the Board of Trustees invites everyone to come out to see what the community has to offer for our furry friends.
Whether you’re looking for a new place to explore with your pup, or wanting to show off their amazing skills, Pet-Palooza is the place for you!
With plenty of local vendors (including various rescue organizations to help you find your newest best friend fur-ever!), residents are invited to a family friendly, fun-filled afternoon of activities. The Kids’ Zone will include inflatable bounce houses, train rides, games and prizes.
And while at Pet-Palooza, kids will have the opportunity to meet some of their favorite characters; like Spiderman and the Disney Princesses!
Owners are reminded that all well-behaved pets are more than welcome to attend. All pets must have up-to-date vaccinations, wear proper tags and be on a leash no longer than six feet. Rest areas for pets that are shaded and have water bowls and small pools will be set up onsite.
Orland Township still has room for any local businesses, veterinarian clinics, or animal rescues that would like to sponsor or attend Pet-Palooza as a vendor!
Sponsorships, aside from benefiting a good cause, receive VIP perks and the most recognition amongst the community. This is a ‘paw-some’ opportunity to help pets in need; and for businesses and organizations to represent all they have to offer.
Those interested are highly encouraged to contact Lindsay Trost or Robin Kassis at (708) 403-4222.
Guests should enter Pet-Palooza at the drive way just north of the Township building.
Admission to Pet-Palooza is free, however a donation of a 5-pound bag of pet food or a cash donation to the Orland Township Pet Pantry is strongly encouraged and greatly appreciated.
All proceeds from Pet-Palooza will benefit the Orland Township Pet Pantry, “Crashy’s Closet,” which was founded by Supervisor O’Grady and his wife, and named for a beloved O’Grady family rescue cat.
