This year the city has added a special “bark party” section devoted to dogs. Well-behaved dogs on leash are welcome to come pick out new handmade collars, homemade treats, meet new groomers and get photos taken. Families looking for a new four-legged buddy can visit with the foster and adoption organizations.
