Hurricane Harvey Dogs Need Homes
And very special for 2017 is a rare chance to give dogs and cats rescued from shelters in Houston and Hurricane Harvey who are here in the Bay Area looking for loving homes thanks to The Milo Foundation.

Hurricane Harvey dogs have arrived. These animals are all owner surrenders or were in shelters before Harvey made landfall and needed to be cleared to make space for the many more strays and surrenders to come.

This family fun event will feature the high-flying stunt dogs, splash dogs, K-9 demos and so many fun activities for the 2-legged and 4-legged alike.
