There will be contests, vendors, demonstrations, food, music, the HSAR Alumni Parade and more. Paws On Parade is a dog-friendly event. New this year is the Retrievers Ball. Inspired by the Duck Races, numbered balls will be released into the Mill Pond and a dog will be sent to retrieve two balls.

Over the last 16 years, HSAR has successfully saved the lives of more than 3,700 abandoned pets, placing them into new homes. The success of HSAR depends entirely on its ability to raise funds through donations, memberships and fundraising events.
