Pickering - Petapalooza 2020
September 19, 2020 –
On Sept 19, 2020 as part of Responsible Pet Ownership Month, the City of Pickering will host the 9th Annual Petapolooza - Pickering's Outdoor Pet Festival.
Petapolooza brings together pet enthusiasts within our community and gives them an opportunity to meet industry professionals, rescue groups, and others in the pet industry.
Last year we were able to raise over $20,000 in admissions, sponsors, exhibitor fees and additional donations all relating to this event. Donations of over $20 are eligible for a tax receipt.
Location - New for 2020!!
A Rabies and Microchip Clinic for dogs will be offered during the event.

We believe it’s important to do our part to stop the spread of COVID-19 so, while it makes us sad, we have decided to cancel our Canine Carnival 2020. Stay tuned, though, for other interactive and online events coming soon!
Thank you to our fantastic events team, as well as our wonderful volunteers for making previous carnivals a great success!
Volunteer Appreciation Celebration!
At HBR, we truly appreciate our amazing volunteers! Without you, we could not save as many dogs as we do!
We had a terrific time celebrating on a Mexican Fiesta Theme…

Darren Locke, Lorelei Downes and Tara Colby walked with Lola, Callaway
and HBR’s Delcie in the Courtice Santa Claus Parade.
“Who rescued who?” we often ask….
Below, Homeward Bound Rescue alum ‘Archie’ is picture with his
foster/adoptive mom Michelle Courchaine Jones. Happy tails Archie!
Whether you choose to volunteer, attend, or help out behind the scenes, HBR needs you. Bring your energy, positive attitude, and of course, your love for flat faced dogs.
