Join us at the beautiful Prescott Downtown Courthouse Plaza for a fun-filled day for you and your “best friend hosted by The Prescott Dog magazine and Big Dog Charitable Foundation. The event begins at 10a-4p with contests, prizes, lots of great vendors, demonstations for Training, Frisbee and the Police K-9s. Prizes include trophies and a gift.

The best part of the event is the opportunity to find a new best friend as many area shelters and rescue groups will be in attendance with dogs for adoption. Each group has their own requirements and adoptions so check with them about that or the event. Some of the groups in attendance will be the Yavapai Humane Society, The Chino Valley Animal Shelter, United Animal Friends, Aussie & Friends, Rescue A Golden of Arizona, Dane Haven Inc., Min Pin Haven Rescue, Arizona Border Collie Rescue, New Hope Cattle Dog and many more.

There will also be several contests including Best Trick or Talent, Best Costume, Most Beautiful/Handsome Dog and Best Owner-Pet Look-a-like. We will also have Dog Races at 3pm in the demonstration arena which is always fun!

There will also be a Low-cost vaccination and micro-chipping clinic by the Yavapai Humane Society Wellness Center.
Cortez Street will be closed down between Gurley and Goodwin and house our stage, covered Pavillion, Food vendors, face painter and Low Cost Vaccination Clinic.
