Pets are like family. So, why not treat your favorite furry relative to PetFest? The eighth annual PetFest is a pet-centric event put on by the Willamalane Park and Recreation District. It features a multitude of pet-friendly events such as educational sessions with pet specialists, vendor booths, prize drawings, a photo booth and more. Some participating vendors and educators include: Q Street Animal Hospital, Willamette Valley Dog and Cat Motel and McKenzie Feed & Pet Supply. In an email to EW, the event’s coordinator, Christine Crutcher, says “PetFest is extra-fun because it’s for more than just dogs … We see cats, ferrets, birds and even snakes. Every pet, from fuzzy to feathery, is invited and will have a good time.” 

PetFest takes place from 10 am to 2 pm on Saturday, Sept. 16, at Lively Park (6100 Thurston Road, Spfd.). Pet owners are encouraged to bring their pets on a leash. The event is FREE. — Meerah Powell
