Petpalooza to invade Auburn’s Game Farm Park Make way for Fido, Felix and their furry friends Saturday. Auburn’s Petpalooza – the local community’s award-winning pet Mardi Gras – returns to Game Farm Park, 3030 R St. SE. The special day for animal lovers – presented by the Auburn Parks, Arts and Recreation Department – runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Good weather willing, the spring’s fifth rendition is expected to attract between 12,000 and 15,000 people and their pets. The free event features live entertainment. The lineup includes the Roving Reptiles and Crème Tangerine, the K9 Kings High Flying Dog Show, a noon pet parade, pony rides, the Nutro Company’s “Unleashed” Pet Contest, an agility area, demonstrations and more than 150 vendors. The Hyperflite Skyhoundz Disc Dog Championships also returns. There is no entry fee for competitors and admission is free for all
spectators. New to Petpalooza is a premier 20-by-40-foot petting zoo, Del’s Feed and Farm Supply’s Kids’ AG-Ventureland Activity Area, GASCAR Crazy Animal Racing and Farmyard Follies Shows – all contracted through the Great American Animal Entertainment Co. The petting zoo is a different kind of experience. There are no barriers once inside the enclosure, and all the animals run freely with the public. The zoo includes a wide variety of animals, among them wallabies, llamas and exotic goats. The AG-Ventureland, brought to the public by Del’s Feed and Farm supply, includes goat and cow milking, corn and bean play boxes, pony saddling and more. In GASCAR races, goats, sheep, chickens, pigs and other surprise animals wear racing silks as they hoof and waddle their way around and sometimes over the track. The Farmyard Follies includes animal behavior, hilarious antics and interesting facts. There will be plenty of acER tivities to keep WINN

Warmer weather means more outdoor time with Fido. Whether you’re walking through the neighborhood, attending a community festival or visiting your local dog park, here are some tips to make your canineaccompanied outings more enjoyable. Teach your dog to walk beside (not in front) of you in crowded areas. When greeting people (with or without dogs) always have your dog sit beside you.

Ask permission to pet someone else’s dog, and request that others do the same before approaching your dog. This will make your dog feel more secure and show others that your dog is under control. If you visit the dog park, practice basic obedience (controlled walking, sit stay and come) on leash, before (and after) you let your dog play. This will help your dog be more responsive to you when it’s time to go home, or if you need to intervene when a play session gets a bit too frisky! Remember that dog parks are not appropriate for all canines. Be fair to your own dog, as well as others, if his personality is not appropriate for these types of play sessions. Some dogs may become fearful, while others may become overly assertive, making the dog park visit stressful for all concerned. A good dog park experience is one where all the canines, and owners, have a good time. If your dog needs help with manners and/or appropriate body language around other dogs, enroll him in a basic dog obedience class where he will learn these skills in a controlled environment.

Do the right thing: License your dog or cat Auburn residents love their pets. Our furry friends are our companions, confidants, and members of our family. They go on errands with us and settle down on the couch with us for movie night. It only makes sense that we would want them to be safe and protected. The best way to do that is to make sure that they are licensed. When you license your dog or cat or both, you are not only helping your animal, but also others who may need help or assistance. Specifically, pet licensing: • Helps get your pet home if it gets lost • Funds animal cruelty investigations
• Assists with pet adoptions • Funds animal shelter services • Helps care for injured and lost pets NOTE: If your residential address is in the City of Auburn (whether you live in King or Pierce County), all indoor/outdoor dogs and cats must be licensed with King County each year. For more information on pet licensing, please contact King County at 206-2962712. You may also contact the City of Auburn Planning & Development Department at 253-931-3090.
King County license fee schedule Juvenile (under 6 months of age; 6 months expiration) $15 Altered (proof required*) $30 Unaltered (includes $25 voucher for savings on spay/neuter) $60 Senior (proof that pet is altered and proof that owner is 65 years of age or older is required) $15 Service Animal (statement that owner has disability and animal is a service animal) $0
Scene at Petpalooza
* Proof of alteration can consist of a statement or receipt from your veterinarian or clinic that did the surgery, or who has examined your pet; or previous license information showing spay/neuter; or a signed Owner’s Statement available on the King County Regional Animal Services website.

People and pets mix in wide variety at the City of Auburn’s annual Petpalooza, which unfolds from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday at Game Farm Park. FILE PHOTOS
