Pooches pampered at Pets in the Park

Inaugural event took place at the Albion Fairgrounds

Everything dog related could be found at the inaugural Pets in the Park event at the Albion Fairgrounds on Sunday.

There were 31 vendors featuring everything from dog grooming to dog training to dog treats and active wear.

Money from the event was being donated to Katie’s Place, a no-kill, volunteer-run animal shelter in Maple Ridge, and PB & Chi Dog Rescue, an all-breed, foster based dog rescue founded in 2013.
