Operation Kindness – North Texas’ original and largest no-kill animal care and adoption center – invites the community to gather their furry friends and come out to Operation Kindness’ Dog Day Afternoon. The annual event is the largest festival in Dallas-Fort Worth celebrating dogs and the people who love them, and will be hosted at the Operation Kindness campus in Carrollton. Dog Day Afternoon was created as a way to celebrate the bond between dogs and their owners, and to provide a free, fun event for the community to get to know Operation Kindness. This year’s free event, sponsored by Pet Supplies Plus, will be held from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Operation Kindness, 3201 Earhart Drive, Carrollton, TX 75006. Admission and parking are free. Highlights include vendors selling pet-related merchandise, canine contests, free microchipping for the first 125 dogs, free “Ask the Vet” tent, low-cost pet vaccines by Texas Coalition for Animal Protection, Kona Ice, pet psychic communicator Sandra Larson, photo booth, sweet tea and lemonade provided by Raising Cane’s and PopStar Popsicles.
