My Furry Valentine Main Stage
The My Furry Valentine Main Stage will be the hub of activity for the main event and will feature several guest emcees. We introduce adoptable animals from all of our participating rescues and shelters, announce adoption numbers and hold prize drawings hourly throughout the event.
Red Carpet Walk sponsored by phoDOGrapher Pet Photography
The ever-popular Red Carpet Walk, where our adopted pets and their new families will take their first family photo, is brought to you by event host phoDOGrapher. Photos are taken by volunteer professional photographers who will be sure to capture the perfect first-family moment!
All MFV Visitors are eligible to participate in our Visitor Raffles, made possible thought the generosity of local businesses. Raffles are drawn and winners announced on stage throughout the event. Check out the raffle table, located next to the Main Stage to view prizes and purchase raffle tickets. Raffle drawings continue throughout the day with a drawing hourly, on the hour.
Winners must claim their prizes within one hour after being announced. If not claimed, prized will be put back on into the pool and raffled again. Please check the Prize Winners Board located on stage to see if you are a winner. Tickets are 1 for $3, 4 for $10, and 10 for $20.
All adopters at our Main Event are eligible to win one of our many amazing grand prizes of their choosing. Be sure to stop by our adopter tables with your adoption paperwork to receive your free raffle ticket and a chance to win. Adopter raffle prize drawings are done after the close of the event, so winners do not have to be present. Winners will be notified via text message and/or call to the number they provide on their raffle ticket and a place and time for pick-up will be determined then.
Meet Adoptable Animals & Rescues/Shelters
Participating rescues and shelters will have many adoptable dogs/puppies and cats/kittens at the event. You will be able to meet with the animals and talk the the rescues and shelters about these animals to ensure you are finding the best match for your family.
Even if you don’t adopt, this event is a great opportunity to talk to the staff and volunteers of participating rescues and shelters about who they are, volunteer and foster opportunities, and ways you can get involved to help homeless animals in more ways than just being an adopter.
Dozens of pet related and non-pet related vendors join us at the event. Many of them have giveaways at their booths for event adopters and visitors and a majority of them have awesome items for sale. From pet related human clothing, pet foods and treats, pet accessories (leashes, collars, clothes), to home improvement products, the My Furry Valentine event offers some great shopping opportunities.
