DescriptionOperation Kindness, the original and largest no-kill animal shelter in North Texas, created dog Day Afternoon in 1994 to recognize dog supporters, adopters and advocates. The free event serves as a way to raise awareness for the nonprofit and has evolved into a public festival for all things canine.
“We are so excited for this year’s 21st annual Dog Day Afternoon,” says Jim Hanophy, Operation Kindness CEO. “It’s such a pleasure to see so many pet lovers and their dogs coming together to enjoy themselves.”
Sponsored by Pet Supplies Plus, Dog Day Afternoon will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. – rain or shine – at Flag Pole Hill, 8100 Doran Circle in Dallas. Admission and parking are free. Highlights include:

• “Mutt Midway” with dozens of vendors selling a wide variety of pet-related merchandise, puppy kissing booth and games with prizes
• Goodie bags for the first 750 humans
• Canine contests for trophies and prizes, including: Best Costume, Stupid Pet Tricks, and Best Pooch Smooch, sponsored by Natural Balance Pet Foods
