Dog Adoption Zone


9:30am – 5pm daily.

Every dog deserves a loving home for life. The Adoption Zone connects dogs with potential pet-parents.

Visitors who want to know all there is to know about dog adoption can head to the Adoption Zone at the 2024 Festival. It is the place for visitors to speak directly to dedicated volunteers representing Adoption and Rescue Groups.

We are committed to raising awareness about adoption and substantially increasing the number of abandoned and homeless dogs placed in loving homes. By allowing hundreds of shelters to exhibit at the Dog Lovers Festival, we have helped 2,000+ dogs-in-need find loving, well-suited homes since 2013.

Most exhibitors participating in the Adoption Zone will bring dogs available for adoption however, visitors aren’t actually able to adopt a dog at the Festival. Instead, they are provided with all the right information and contacts needed to make informed decisions and start the adoption process
