The day started with the Blessing of the Animals, followed by a pet parade around the park, music, food, and entertainment. The Showtime Cloggers from LaBelle demonstrated their dancing skills on stage while animal rescue groups showed displays around the park.
Friends of Animal Rescue, helping LaBelle's no-kill animal shelter, were looking for families to foster care or adopt their many cats and dogs. The shelter also needs volunteer help at the facility, located just north of the LaBelle bridge.
The Talking Monkeys Project needs donations to help take care of abandoned monkeys, S.E.A.L. Exotic Animal Foundation from Charlotte County takes care of abandoned wild animals, and Caloosa Humane Society brought along some of their animals needing homes.
