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 teams and volunteers - whose passion is to make a difference for pet wellness, education and sharing our pets with others. 

Imagine never being able to see, touch or feel your pet again? We can't either. Sharing our pets as Registered Pet Therapy Teams is way to make a difference while making new connections and 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 and 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, training and intuitive counseling, 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 for TTouch, massage, Reiki or get your photo taken.
Connect with the teams and ask questions. 

Walk-ins are welcome -- ALL MUST REGISTER and PAY AT THE DOOR.   

Raffles about 3:00pm. We will call those who put their name and phone on their tickets!
Consider 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!
