Thank you!

The staff at the Celebration of Wildlife is hard at work putting this year's event together. We have decided to once again host a TWO day event with Saturday being devoted to Wildlife Appreciation Day and Sunday dedicated to Pet Rescue/Adoption and our Hero Pet award.

On Saturday Silly Safari, Incredible Bats and Indiana Wild will be thrilling the crowd with their exciting animal exhibits!

On Sunday the domestic animal rescue groups were there to promote pet rescue and adoption. Please show up to support your favorite rescue group and promote the importance of adopting an animal in need.

Each year our Hero Pet contest has attracted better stories than the year before and the prizes have grown as well! Please be on the lookout for those outstanding stories of how a pet has made a difference on the life its owners or others. Entries can be filed onine at here

We want to thank all that attended this year's event and we look forward to bringing you an even better event next year.
