As a result of the pandemic affecting us globally, Wagfest will take place virtually this year.  We will miss the traditional Wagfest as we all know it just as much as you but look forward to hopefully returning to an in person event at Mitchell Park in Brookfield in 2021 (save the tentative date of September 11, 2021).


For this year, we have several activities you can enjoy from the comfort of your home or while walking/jogging with your dog while supporting the daily needs of animals in our care and the services and programs we offer to our community.
