Reminder: Please Leave Pets at Home

no pets sign

Unfortunately KidFest is not pet friendly. There are large crowds of people, with the majority of them being yourg children. It may seem obvious that pets shouldn't be left in cars, even for short periods of time yet the SPCA and RCMP are still called out to rescue pets from vehicles.

Many of the activities and entertainment will involve children and their families to be sitting on the ground where it is easy for leashes and pets to cause preventable circumstances.
(ie: tripping hazards, leashes tangled, food scavenging, etc.)

Please plan ahead and leave your pets at home where you can be assured they will be cool and comfortable. KidFest and your pets thank you for your cooperation.

Did you know?

It may seem obvious that plenty of water and shade are essential for pets throughout the year, but in warm weather these are lifesaving. You should always ensure that fresh water placed out of direct sunlight, is available to your animals at all times, and that they have sufficient cool shelter from the heat. A dog’s normal body temperature is about 38ºC. They can withstand a body temperature of 41ºC for only a very short time before suffering irreparable brain damage or death. The confines of a car interfere with a dog’s normal cooling process, which is evaporation through panting, and they suffer massive stress very quickly under these conditions.
