Local Animal Shelters to Raise the Woof at PETA’s Dog-Adoption Festival

Saturday, May 14, 2022, 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Poochella Is Back! Local Animal Shelters to Raise the 'Woof' at PETA’s Dog-Adoption Festival

After a two-year pandemic hiatus, PETA and eight other Hampton Roads–area animal shelters will welcome everyone back for Poochella, a sun-soaked afternoon of meeting one on one with lovable, adoptable dogs. Held at PETA’s Bea Arthur Dog Park on the Elizabeth River, this year’s family-friendly adoption festival will feature delicious vegan vittles from Senses Vegan Comfort Food.

“PETA’s Poochella festival offers local shelters the chance to come together and find loving homes for wonderful dogs,” says PETA Senior Vice President of Cruelty Investigations Daphna Nachminovitch. “PETA is encouraging compassionate people to open their hearts to animals in need and learn more about why they should always adopt, never shop.”

Your coverage is invited. RSVP to Nicole Meyer at 206-549-4873 or
