Furry Pet Faire and adoption day event May 30

The Concord Senior Center and the Contra Costa Humane Society invite animal lovers of all ages to the Furry Pet Faire and Maddie's Pet Adoption Day on Saturday, May 30 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at John Baldwin Park on Parkside Circle in Concord. The event will be held across from the Baldwin dog park.

Nationally, free Maddie's Pet Adoption Day events are the largest events of their kind in the country. Their purpose is to save the lives of shelter dogs and cats while increasing awareness of shelter animals and the efforts of shelter and rescue organizations.

The event will showcase a variety of vendors from many rescue organizations and animal services. There will be K-9 demonstrations and information regarding pet-related services and resources. Last year, over 50 pets were adopted. Great raffle prizes will be available with proceeds benefitting the Concord Senior Center and the Humane Society.

The event is free and family-friendly. For more information or to be a vendor contact Concord Senior Center Program Aid Dario Sanchez at (925) 671-3017.
