ALEXANDRIA, VA–Come one, come all! Alexandria Love Your Pet Day returns October 3 to Oronoco Bay Park, 100 Madison St. Revamped with a new location, Love Your Pet Day will also include main-stage acts, a demonstration area, food and drinks and pets galore.

Of course Love Your Pet Day wouldn’t be complete without furry friends. Between main-stage acts, enjoy Doggie Dates and Meow Meet-Ups with the adoptable animals from the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria (AWLA) and Tails High cat rescue.

In no short-supply of furry, family fun, Love Your Pet Day will also feature the AWLA Family Fun Tent, with a variety of animal-themed activities, crafts, and educational games throughout the day. Pamper your pooch with a personalized dog bandana; entrance your cat with a custom mobile; treat your pet with literal treats!

Human treats will include Port City’s beer garden, Rick’s Roasters coffee, and the Rocklands Barbecue food truck. Proceeds from Love Your Pet Day will go to AWLA to support homeless animals in Alexandria as well as pets and people throughout the community.

If you want to help animals and have fun in the process, vendor spaces are still available! Visit for more information.
