The Pet Wellness Festival was founded in 2004 by the late Cindy Fischer, M.Ed. and Maureen Ross, MA, in collaboration with a heart centered blend of practitioners, pet enthusiasts, pet therapy and volunteer teams and volunteers. The was to make passion to make a difference for pet wellness and education by safely sharing our pets with others.
Imagine never being able to see, touch or feel your pet again? We can't either. As Registered Pet Therapy Teams, we are making a difference and new connections/friends. Simply, it brings joy into people's lives while enriching our own.
PWF (rhymes with sniff) is a WELLNESS PAWTY, bringing people and pets together to raise awareness about well-being, education, healthy nutrition, products and services in a supportive and friendly environment.
PWF is an outstanding networking event, small enough to make meaningful connections.
Relationships begin that can last a last time.
Discover more about pwf's uniqueness and contributors/sponsors, including but not limited to, massage, Reiki, acupressure, TTouch, Emotion and Body Coding, behavior shaping, training, people pleasures and so much more ...
Meet authors and new friends, registered pet partners and Reading Education Assistance Dog teams.
Schedule a 10 or 15 minutes session with the practitioners. Connect with the teams and ask questions.
Walk-ins are welcome - ALL MUST REGISTER, PAY AT THE DOOR and READ THE GUIDELINES.
Raffles are about 3:00pm. We will call those who put their name and phone on their tickets!
Consider stick-on labels - many have found this easier.
Breathing in deeply nose-to-navel ... ah-ha ... Looking forward seeing familiar faces and meeting new ones.
Enjoy the Journey!
