We also want to make sure your other pets (cats, monkeys, squirrels, pet alligators etc.) are kept safe and are not spooked by the presence of so many dogs. Even if they are in a stroller or carrier, we cannot let them enter. After this event, we will determine the best practices moving forward. We look forward to seeing you there!
