What's Responsible Pet Ownership Day?


Well, we can ensure you that this will be the largest pet event in Central Minnesota! As an organization, we strive to promote responsible pet ownership so dogs, cats and critters are less likely to need rescue or surrendered to a shelter.

This event is the launch of our new Central MN Animal Care Guide website, a one-stop shop for all your pet-related needs. If there is or soon will be a furry companion in your life, Central MN Animal Care Guide encourages you to make a promise, not just to your loyal new friend, but to all of those who may be affected by them.

Our guide gives you resources to all your pet’s needs; veterinary care, boarding and doggy daycare, training and agility, and when the time comes, end of life services. Also, pet-related events and opportunities in Central MN such as fundraisers, spay & neuter clinics, nail trim clinics and much more!

Animals bring many benefits into our lives and to ensure they remain healthy, happy and safe; we need to be on the lookout for their well-being and the well-being of those around them.

Responsible Pet Ownership Day is nationally recognized event. Each year, the AKC invites its more than 5,000 affiliated dog clubs, along with other pet-related organizations, to host Responsible Dog Ownership Days to help educate the public in their communities about the responsibilities of dog ownership and help current owners enhance their relationships with their pets. These events consist of educational booths, action packed dog demonstrations, games, activities to try out with your dog, microchipping, health clinics and more. Owning a dog has endless pleasures and rewards, but we all need a friendly reminder about the obligations we have to our pets in return. Expect this event every third Saturday in September and only to get bigger each and every year!

This is going to be an event you don’t want to miss and we hope to see you there!
