Saturday, July 26, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. marks the biggest canine adoption event in northern Arizona: The Rescue Roundup. This year, the event will be at the Flagstaff City Hall Front Lawn. The purpose of the event is to educate the public about adopting animals from shelters and rescue organizations. More than 40 different rescues, shelters and vendors will be on hand to explain, promote and demonstrate canine care.

Various demonstrations will be provided by Flagstaff Kennel Club Drill Team — herding, canine freestyle, carting, agility and Disc Dogs. The Try-Agility course will be available to test your own canine’s agility after the demos. The event will feature giveaways of pet products throughout the day, local vendors, a raffle and low-cost microchipping for pets. A special raffle for a portrait of attendees’ pet by local Flagstaff artist Connie Townsend will also be featured during the Rescue Roundup.

For eight years, the Arizona Border Collie Rescue has been hosting the Rescue Roundup to spread the word about rescues and to give the public awareness and alternatives to pet shops and “backyard breeders.” The Rescue Roundup event spotlights animals that are available for adoption. Potential adopters have the opportunity to meet several foster animals that may fit their families’ lifestyles.
