Gulfport’s Get Rescued is Leashed Up

Gulfport’s Get Rescued is leashed up and ready for its 14th annual event on Saturday, February 24, 2018. More than 50 animal rescue groups attend and more than 1000 pets are ready to find their “fur-ever” homes with you! This is the largest pet rescue festival in the State, with groups traveling from every side of the Tampa Bay and beyond.


Other pet-related activities include pet care education, a food and supplies drive, animal training demos, contests, the Florida Weiner Dog Derby, our annual Bark-B-Que event, food, music and more. Bring your own critter companion, and join thousands of other visitors to participate in one of our area’s most beloved traditions. All leashed people and their well behaved pets are welcome to the one day event, and it won’t cost a cent to attend! Convenient complimentary parking is available all around the area.
