Description
Come out and join us at our annual Animal Rescue Festival! This is our second biggest fundraiser of the year and we need as much volunteer support as possible! 

Jobs will range from handling dogs to helping with registration. There will be food vendors there and even breweries supplying beers to try if you are 21 years or older. 

Parking: You can park either at the garage next to the park or any available downtown public parking. 

If you sign up to help with the event please check in with Allie Names (volunteer coordinator) at the volunteer check in table to receive your free shirt, glass and get a name tag so that all volunteers have a volunteer tag. In addition, please wear your blue volunteer tshirt if you are helping out with this event. Remember that if you are volunteering with the Fredericksburg SPCA you are representing the SPCA so please be kind, helpful and if you have any questions find a staff! There will be multiple staff at the event. 

We will be trying to send ALL SPCA dogs that are up-to-date on vaccinations and adoption ready. This means not all dogs may have been introduced before and they may not all like each other. It is important to keep dogs separate and calm throughout the entire event. 

This event is RAIN OR SHINE! We will only postpone if there is severe weather, such as a thunderstorm or tornado warning. If there is bad weather, expect an email from Allie Names by 7:30 am that morning.

We can't wait to see you all there! 

Location: River Front Park, 705 Sophia St., Fredericksburg, VA 22401
