Join us on Saturday, November 5 for an exciting day dedicated to saving the lives of our community's animals!
The day begins at Riverfront Park with the Walk for the Animals; a one-mile stroll through historic downtown Fredericksburg at 9:30 a.m. (personal pets welcome!)
After the walk, join the free celebration at Riverfront Park from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. featuring local vendors, music, food trucks, beer, and more.
