Join Pet Me Happy at Bow-Wows & Meows 2016
The Pet Me Happy Treats menagerie invite you to join them and a few thousand other pet-maniacs at the 16th annual Bow-Wows & Meows Pet Fair at Hart Park in Newhall, California, on Sunday, October 9 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
“We’ll have free Artisan Dog Treats with Oregon Blueberries for all canine guests, plus a contest and special discounts for their humans on treats and gifts,” said Pet Me Happy Co-Founder-CEO Stephen K. Peeples.
“We’re really looking forward to meeting our many new local fans and customers,” he said.
Part of Pet Me Happy’s mission is advocating pet adoption, Peeples said. “We’re grateful for the opportunity to support the Bow-Wows & Meows organization’s efforts.”
Admission to Sunday’s event is free for all, including dogs on leashes, and so is parking, on the Hart Park grounds.

Adoption fees will be discounted to just $30. All dog and cat candidates are already spayed or neutered, immunized, microchipped and ready for immediate adoption.
When they adopt a pet, new pet parents will also receive a goodie bag stuffed with pet supplies provided by select Bow-Wows & Meows vendors, including Pet Me Happy.
“We’re happy to provide sample-sized packages of our new Artisan Dog Treats for the goodie bags,” Stephen said.
Nonprofit rescue organizations including Best Friends Animal Society Los Angeles, the St. Bonnie’s Sanctuary, New Leash on Life and Boxer Rescue Los Angeles are also set to bring adoptable pets to Bow-Wows & Meows this year. Their adoption fees and requirements vary.
Peeples and his Pet Me Happy partners, Nadine Peeples and Paige Hagen, are especially excited about Bow-Wows & Meows this year because right now they’re searching for the perfect Pet Me Happy canine mascot to adopt.
With more than 100 dogs available for adoption, the odds are really good they’ll find a match.
“We just might get lucky on Sunday,” Stephen said.
Pet Me Happy Treats is a co-sponsor of the “Adoptable Pet of the Week” news feature on Santa Clarita radio station KHTS-AM 1220 and the station’s website and YouTube channel. If Stephen, Nadine and Paige find the perfect pup at Bow Wows & Meows on Sunday, the KHTS crew headed by producer Melissa Lampert will catch the moment on video for a future segment of the feature.
More Pet Fair Activities – Disc Dogs, Famous Dog Show, Super-Raffle
Sunday’s Bow-Wows & Meows Pet Fair also features lots of family- and pet-friendly activities, including the high-flying Frisbee-catching Disc Dogs, the Famous Fun Dog Show, and a huge “super-raffle” (great prizes at just $1 per ticket). Food trucks will offer fare for human carnivores and vegans alike. Photographers and artists will take pet photos and create pet portraits.
The county’s veterinary team will be available for questions about dogs, cats and pet adoption. County dog license renewals will be available on the spot. TAGS will offer free rabies shots and low-cost vaccines.
And joining Pet Me Happy Treats are 60-plus more vendors selling a wide variety of pet-related products, from premium pet food to cool accessories and gifts.
In 2015, a record-breaking 200 pets were adopted during the one-day event. Since its founding in 2000, the Valencia, California-based Bow-Wows & Meows has helped nearly 1,900 pets find new forever homes.
