Bring on the


Join us May 15, 2021 at Central Penn College for our tenth "annual" pet adoption festival featuring rescues, shelters, vendors, activities, and food trucks!


With the ever-changing COVID-19 situation and after extensive talks with my team, we have decided to postpone Petapalooza to May 15, 2021. With an extremely small committee and for the safety of the amazing volunteers, organizations, and festival goers who attend our event, we are following the recommendation of the CDC. 

However, rescues and shelters need your support now more than ever before!


If you are able, please give financially to a local animal organization in your area. In times like these, displaced animals are a more regular occurrence, and animal rescue organizations have trouble keeping up. Your support (even $5/$10/$20) would mean SO MUCH and would enable them to continue their good work.

We are going to redistribute vendor/sponsor donations to the animal rescues and shelters who were signed up to attend our event. It is one small way we can make a difference during this time.

Thank you for loving animals as much as we do. We will see you again next year. Please stay safe, and continue to dote on your furry family members.


- Bitsy McCann, Volunteer Executive Director.

Petapalooza is a free event that features lovable, adoptable homeless animals from shelters and rescues in the Central PA area.

We focus on ALL animal rescues at Petapalooza featuring dogs, cats, birds and more! In addition to helping animal rescues, we also focus on being an animal-friendly festival with vendors, raffles, live music, Barkby Plunger's Dog Course Luring, food trucks and The Pet Parade to raise additional money for the animal shelters and rescues.
