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.

    Hundreds gather at 160-year-old pioneer church in Lenora for Christmas service

    If you visit Lenora United Methodist Church you'll see a Christmas service the way Laura Ingalls Wilder would have. The church was built in 1856, making it the first church in Fillmore county. Hundreds come out every year to enjoy the festivities the old fashioned way: with a wood stove, oil lamps, and pump organ.
