FAMILY AND PET FRIENDLY MEETUP: Fromm PetFest at the Summerfest Fairgrounds!

With the possible exception of that one meetup we had where we had to escape the chinchilla farm via sewage pipes ala The Shawshank Redemption, this could likely be the cutest and smelliest meetup we'll have ever had:

The FROMM PETFEST at the Summerfest Fairgrounds!

Held at Henry Maier Festival Park (Summerfest Fairgrounds) on Saturday, September 20th, from 10am to 6pm, this FREE festival (with FREE PARKING as well) invites pet owners and pet lovers to come to the park and participate in a variety of fun pet-focused attractions and activities including dock diving, nutritional seminars, grooming competitions, a pet-themed marketplace, family-focused games and activities, contests, live music, food and more.

Fromm Petfest is proud to support the WI Humane Society and Milwaukee Area Domestic Animal Control Commission (MADACC) helping to raise awareness and benefit local animals in need. Both groups will host an “Adoption Avenue” at Fromm Petfest where attendees can meet dogs and cats looking for their forever homes.

This meetup will be family-friendly and pet-friendly. Because there may be a large number of people at the festival, while we will try to wander together, it may be difficult to keep us all together as a group the whole time. So expect this to be a laid-back meetup event where people wander into and out of the group throughout our time together at the festival.

My new pup, Boston, is looking forward to meeting you all!

Note: All pets must be on leashes. Dogs and cats are welcome. Pets must be up to date on vaccinations. All attendees who attend the festival will be required to sign waivers (not from us - from Fromm).

Please feel free to RSVP with your human + pet head-count!  :)

    Hi everyone! Boston and I will be down there soon. I will post our location and how to find us when we get there. I will probably only stay a couple of hours, but late comers will be welcome to use this page to meet up with each other throughout the day. :-)

    Would like to go but have two dogs and I can't handle both at an event. Also, Ronan goes ape-sh*t when he's near a lure course. No one can keep that dog from a lure course. It took two men to cart him away the last time. Two. And they were both struggling to hold on to him. Trainer tells me he has a "strong prey drive." Yeah. Strong.........or insane.

    As much as I would to come and pet puppies and kittens, I am worried this event may instigate the adoption of an animal I am not ready for... Therefore... I think I need to pass.

      We'll protect you. We'll tell you poop and vomit stories and make all pets sound like good ideas to visit but terrible ideas for permanence.
