Celebrate that special, furry someone in your life at Long Beach Exchange’s National Pet Day party + adoption event in collaboration with PetSmart! In honor of National Pet Day which is August 26, PetSmart at LBX will host a variety of pet-themed festivities the weekend before on Saturday, August 24 from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
On the day of the event, the parking lot right outside of PetSmart will be home to an abundance of pet-friendly activations for animal lovers of all ages to enjoy including adorable pet portraits, tasty pet-inspired treats, live music, and swag items from PetSmart. The pet portrait artist will be showcasing her work for attendees to view and will also be accepting custom pet portrait orders starting at $30 at the event. Pet food vendors such as Merrick and PetSmart will also be in attendance to hand out free samples along with adoption groups who will also take part in the festivities. Confirmed adoption groups include Caring Friends Cat Rescue, South Orange County Reptile Rescue, and more with each group providing guests with the opportunity to discuss pet adoption options or even take home a pet of their own.
No registration or cost is needed to attend, and all of your furry friends are more than welcome to join in the fun! Please note that while animals are allowed throughout the Long Beach Exchange center, they are not allowed inside the Hangar.
