2017 Pets in Omaha Pick-a-Pooch Adoption Days Preview

Pets in Omaha will host its Pick-a-Pooch Adoption Days at Ralston Arena this summer! The event is on July 15 and 16, 2017, and will be held on the main floor and arena concourse at 7300 Q Streets from 11 am until 4 pm. This will be the fourth installment of the event and it is lining up to be the largest to date.

Along with rescue groups and shelter organizations that show off adoptable animals at the event, you’ll find all kinds of family fun, raffles, dozens of pet-loving vendors and much more. Admission, thanks to our corporate sponsors, is free.

You may bring your well-behaved dogs as long as they are on a non-retractable leash. Parking is free, many booths will have free items, and you’ll learn about many parts of our pet community!

Please know that shelters may be able to adopt an animal out on the days of the events, but rescues WILL NOT. The application process can start at the event and, as we’ve seen many times over the years, the Pets in Omaha Pick-a-Pooch Adoption Days will serve as a platform to show off our animal advocates and introduce animals to their soon-to-be-forever families.

Thanks to all our sponsors for the event; with their help, we’re able to host this giant get-together and admit all guests free.
