Highlights from the 2018 Pet Palooza

For people who love animals, the annual Pet Palooza at the Brunswick Library is a great event to attend. The free event will take place on Saturday, April 13, 2019 from 10:00am-2:00pm.

The Pet Palooza is the signature event at the Brunswick Library and one main reason it is held is to promote pet adoption. Besides cats and dogs, there will also be many different types of animals such as bunnies, turtles, bugs, and many more.

In addition to seeing lots of animals, there will also be other activities such as pet-related crafts, presenters, a magic show, Nate the Great balloon art, face painting, and food trucks. Kelly Halleen, the Children’s Department Supervisor at the Brunswick library said, “It’s kind of like a celebration of pets.” Over 1,000 people attended the event last year.

The Pet Palooza is a great family event. Donations of pet food will be accepted to help animals at the Medina County SPCA. More information about the Pet Palooza can be found at the Brunswick Library’s website.
