City of Lubbock announces Easter Egg Hunt for dogs

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Bring your dogs to an Easter egg hunt just for them! Maxey Community Centers is hosting their 4th Annual Easter Egg Hunt for Pups on Saturday, March 24, 2018, from 1 p.m. - 2:30 p.m. at the Lubbock Memorial Arboretum, 4111 University.

This event is a perfect way to celebrate Easter with your furry friends! Participants will enjoy pictures with the Easter Bunny, pet vendors, an Easter parade, and at 2 p.m. there will be an Easter egg hunt for your dogs. Bring your pup dressed up in their Easter best, and you could win a prize basket for the Best Dressed Dog.

Dogs must be up-to-date on their rabies vaccination and have with them a 2018 rabies tag or certificate from a veterinarian. Dogs must be on a leash and aggressive dogs or dogs in heat are not allowed.

City of Lubbock Animal Services will be hosting a booth at this event and will be providing microchips for dogs for Lubbock residents. Microchips are the best way to ensure that a lost pet is reunited with its owners.  Cost is $10 cash per dog.

For more information, call Maxey Community Center at (806) 767-3796 or visit the center at 4020 30th Street.

They are open Monday-Thursday from 8:30 a.m. - Noon and 1:00 - 8:00 p.m., Fridays 8:30 a.m. - Noon and 1:00 – 5:30 p.m., as well as on Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
