A Carnival Like You’ve Never Seen!

This year we are excited to bring together two spectacular APA events – the Fast & Furriest 5k and Canine Carnival!

Running enthusiasts can complete the 5k along with their furry best friend and cross the finish line to a celebration like no other – the Canine Carnival! And not to worry – if you aren’t a runner, just join us for the Carnival fun!

Canine Carnival celebrates the bond between people and their pets! Be part of the Carnival where the dogs play the games and win great prizes. Bring your pooches and join the APA Adoption Center for the festivities:

– Dog-related “carnival” games
– Live music
– The Canine Court
– Educational children’s activities & games
– Exhibitor booths
– Food trucks
– More prizes than you can shake a stick at
– FIDO Friendly magazine and the Get your Licks on route 66® Adoption Tour
– & TONS of dogs to see! 

In 2017, the APA found homes for 3,463 pets that were brought to our Adoption Center. This year, we are on track to help even more dogs, cats and other critters. Your ticket purchase helps take care of these animals and get them the medical attention they need. We truly appreciate your support for homeless animals in and around St. Louis. 

Dogs, who are well-behaved, up to date on vaccinations and on leash, are invited to share in the fun. No retractable leashes, please!
