Franklin’s Bandstand Park looked more like an animal sanctuary rather than a public park on Saturday, as Precious Paws Animal Rescue’s PetFest made its return after a one-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Many attendees brought their pets and exchanged stories with each other about their fur-bearing family members. Terry Sullivan, better known as “Jungle Terry,” mesmerized and educated attendees, especially the children, with unique stories and information about the exotic animals he brought along.
Activities included dog games, an agility course, pet fashion show, and pet painting. Many dogs and cats from Precious Paws in need of homes were on hand, as well as various vendors.
