Petpalooza Scavenger Hunt brought to you by your friends at VillavillekulaZipf’s Candies and Busy Bee Toys!

  • Where: the 8400 – 8500 blocks of Germantown Ave. in Chestnut Hill
  • What: Stop at one of the three sponsoring businesses to pick up your map and have fun searching for the 12 blue paw prints that will be hidden in the three businesses and out on the sidewalk on the East side of Germantown Ave – the same side of the street as the sponsoring businesses.
  • All kids who are participating will get a treat and a free raffle ticket for a chance to win a gift basket!  Winner will be randomly chosen on Friday night and will be contacted via telephone.  Winner does not have to be present at time of drawing.
  • How to Participate:  In celebration of Petpalooza, we’re asking visitors to bring donations of pet food to be given to the SPCA.  The sponsoring businesses will have collection bins and will take the food to the SPCA after the event.
  • The SPCA is in desperate need of wet & dry dog and cat food as well as rabbit/guinea pig food and bedding material.  Let’s help them fill their shelves with vital food for the animals in their care until forever homes are found!

We’re excited to welcome Peaceable Kingdom Petting Zoo. Stop by Highland Avenue with your family to meet 20 cute animals, including a baby goat and a baby yak!
