Animal Care & Control to Host Annual Pawapalooza

The Boone County Animal Shelter is preparing to host the fifth annual Pawapalooza. This family-friendly day-long event includes a K95K, animal adoptions, concessions and vendors, costume contest, inflatables for the kids and more.

Pawapalooza will take place Saturday, September 24, 2016, from 12:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the Boone County Fairgrounds, 5819 Idlewild Rd., Burlington, KY 41005. The K95K will be held at England/Idlewild Park located at 5550 Idlewild Rd. Burlington, Ky. 41005 at 9:30 AM. You can register for the race at or register the day ofthe event. Your help is essential to making this event a great success. Pawapalooza will raise funds for the shelter, which made the commitment to eliminate... euthanasia of all treatable animals, meaning that resources of time and support, and especially financially, have become even further stretched than ever before.

Providing the care necessary to save the lives of homeless pets in Boone County is an expensive endeavor, but one that the organization is committed to, and one that we are reliant upon the community and local businesses to  help support. Funds raised from Pawapalooza will be earmarked for the medical care for sick, injured, abused and orphaned animals and to support the volunteer and foster care programs at BCAS. All proceeds go directly toward improving the lives of the animals.
