It's almost time for 'Octopurrfest'

Sep 18

It's All About the Animals, a non-profit animal shelter, is gearing up for the third annual "Octopurrfest" celebration.

The festival will be held rain or shine on October 15, from 11 a.m.- 4 p.m at the shelter, located at 103 Marion Road in Rochester.

Vendors of crafts, jewelry, homemade gifts, pet fashions, and more will be on site.  Other attractions will include an auction with over 100 items to win, a Tom Cat Ball Drop raffle with a prize of $500, face painting and balloon twisting, music for all, and tours of the shelter.

A hot lunch from the food stand will be available, alongside freshly-baked desserts from the bake sale table.

Admission and parking are free. Well-behaved animals are welcome—all animals must be leashed at all times.

100 percent of proceeds will directly benefit It's All About the Animals. For more information, visit, email, or call 508-763-2035.
