This weekend marks the fifth annual Love Your Rescue Pet Day (LYRPD) where event goers can celebrate Austin's awesome rescue pets. Organized by Austin Pets Alive, the event will be held at ABGB, Austin's equivalent of a German beer garden.
The event takes place on Saturday, July 15 and while the event during the day, where you can adopt a dog, will be free from 3-7 p.m, the tickets for the concert are $18. You can get your tickets for the awesome lineup here.
LYRPD will have adoptable puppies, a photo booth, live music and food, a raffle (including the prize of a year's-worth of Castor & Pollux dog or cat food, and the APA StoryBooth where you can tell the world how a rescue pet has changed your life.
The proceeds from this fun day will benefit Austin Pets Alive (APA) and their many programs that make Austin one of the most commendable no-kill shelter cities in the country. Participating businesses around Austin will also donate to APA's adoption programs with money made on Saturday.
