Pick- A -Pooch

Event season is here for area pet businesses, shelters, rescues, and everyone else! A big event for all is Pets in Omaha’s Pick-a-Pooch Adoption Days and, once again, it’s one of the summer’s premier pet events.

The fourth year of Pets in Omaha’s Pick-a-Pooch Adoption Days will include much of what attendees are used to:

  • FREE admission
  • dozens of rescue groups and shelters
  • adoptable animals
  • over 100 pet-loving vendors
  • free parking
  • all indoor events
  • a pet food drive that will benefit area shelters and rescues! Bring any type of dog or cat food to the event and we’ll distribute the food to humane organizations upon the weekend’s conclusion. Click here for details.


On July 14 and 15, 2018, join us at Ralston Arena for one of the area’s top pet events!
