It all started when...

In 2017, a group of  West End pet businesses got together to come up with a way to help the Alexandria community celebrate its love of pets.  They worked with the Mayor and City Council to declare the first annual Alexandria Love Your Pet Day and then hosted a block party to commemorate this announcement.  The inaugural event engaged 30+ local businesses and a dozen non-profits, attracting over 300 attendees with 100+ dogs who enjoyed a variety of food truck fare and children's entertainment.  We plan to have an even bigger and better event in 2018 with the support of our partners!
