Pet lovers can pamper their pooches while supporting a good cause at the first annual Pet Fest.

The York County SPCA and Providence Place senior-living center will hold Pet Fest from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, June 28, at Providence Place, 3377 Fox Run Road in Dover Township.

Food, raffles, live music, a dog show, vendors and kid activities are just some of the things planned, according to a Providence Place news release.

Pets are welcome, of course, and a photographer will be on hand to take pet photos. Nail trimming will be available for dogs, too.

Pet Fest is a way to celebrate National Pet Week and to support the York County SPCA.

Admission is free, but those attending are asked to bring an item to donate to the SPCA if possible, including pet food, bath towels, trash bags and cat litter.

Pets must be leashed, under control, sociable with other animals and current on vaccinations, according to the release. They must also be at least 4 months old, because very young animals have weak immune systems.

People should be aware the "loud and festive environment" at Pet Fest could be stressful for some pets, the release states.

For more information, call Shemane Bramilla, senior living adviser, at (717) 542-8622.
