The packet pickup event will include a Celebrity Crate Challenge, where people can donate to keep participating community leaders and local celebrities in dog crates.

There will be vendors such as Long Leash On Life and Rock & Brews passing out dog treats, and Sport Systems is also generously donating a portion of their weekend proceeds to Animal Humane – 20% of your purchase if you bring your pup and 15% if you shop solo.
