Hy-Vee on 37th St. hosts its very first Pet Party, where pets were up for adoption

Posted:
ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -

Some furry friends got to strut their stuff Tuesday afternoon and take part in a costume parade.

The 37th St. Hy-Vee hosted a Pet Party, where pet owners came with their dogs to enjoy a nice day outside, get some treats and possibly win a special prize after the costume parade.

This was also an adoption event, where a lot of pets were looking for their forever home. There was a picnic as well where Hy-Vee was grilling hot dogs and hamburgers.

Joining Safe Haven was the Small Dog Rescue of Minnesota, BACB Unleashed, Camp companion, the Rochester Animal Control Shelter, and the Rochester Police K 9 Unit. A portion of the food sales will benefit the Wallace Pit bull Foundation, a non profit organization in Rochester.

It's also a great way to get animals socialized and comfortable with other dogs, cats and people.
