Autumn 2017 Events for Fun and Fundraising

Added on August 31, 2017

Psst…Winter is Coming…


Well, Autumn is imminent, at least, and with the end of hot summer days comes the Season of Pet Events!


Central Bark Philly regularly participates in three annual events each Fall, and there are many more things happening in our region that you may want to attend.

With Love, Super Adoption Day is brought to us by Citizens for a No Kill Philadelphia, held at The Schmidt’s Commons in Northern Liberties. This year, WLSAD is making their debut in Fall eventing on Saturday, September 9th (could a biannual event be in the works? We can hope!) This group does work year round, helping unwanted pets find homes but also helping residents keep their pets by providing food and supplies made available by generous donations. This event provides exposure for many rescue operations, and pets of all kinds are available for adoption and/or fostering. There will be many vendors with unique items you can purchase for your pets, I love shopping at this event!



The Rescue Run 5k on September 24th is celebrating its 5th annual event at the Philadelphia Navy Yard. This fun run raises funds to benefit The Monster Milers, a dedicated group of runners who help shelter dogs stay sane while waiting for adoption by taking them out on weekly (or more) runs. They partner with PAWS, ACCT and Street Tails to support their adoptable dogs.




Mums and Mutts celebrates its 8th annual event on October 14th (11-4) at Burke Playground, 2nd and Jackson Streets, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19148.This event brings together two of the things South Philly loves the most – Mummers and animal rescue! They feature more than a few rescues, giveaways, raffles, and more.




The 11th annual PAWS Mutt Strut steps off on October 14th (9-2) at the Navy Yard, and once again is THE place to see dogs in costumes! The cute factor is high at this event and hosts from WMMR and other local celebs are known to stop in and help with contest judging. Raffles, vendors, giveaways and more add to the fun.


There are many other events benefiting our city’s rescues this season, including some HOT Happy Hour locations, like Bok Bar!  You can find more region-wide events listed on our friend’s The Philly Pet Pages’ events listing!
