Animal Connection is actively engaged with our local town. Please join us throughout the year at any of our in-store or Charlottesville community events! Watch this page for social events on our new outdoor patio at the front of the store, featuring a shady seating area, fountain, fire feature, and grill and refreshment area! Perfect for dog lovers and well-mannered dogs to enjoy getting to know each other! Planned events include all-season Yappy Hours, cookouts for humans and pets, possibly hot s'mores and hot toddys by the fire pit in the winter...stay tuned!
Tune in to our weekly live Facebook show, WHAT'S BARKING LOCAL, on Wednesdays at 3 pm. You'll meet unsung heroes of the central Virginia pet community and know about other events sponsored by rescues and friends of our store.
Our store's signature event, DOG FEST CVILLE, brings together the Charlottesville community in a celebration of all things pet. You'll meet selected pet businesses, rescue groups, and enjoy an afternoon of family fun. It's the last Sunday in September. The 2020 event is being restructured to comply with Covid guidelines. Check our Facebook page or this page for upcoming event info!
