Aptos 4th of July “Worlds Shortest Parade”
Aptos’ 4th of July parade clocks in at 0.6 miles, but don’t let its brevity fool you. This was a fun community parade that drew a huge crowd this year. Lot’s of lucky pets watching the parade were given a cool toy or a BirchBark Poop Bag Holder!
A great time was had by all and we can’t wait for next year.
Santa Cruz Mountains Pet Fest
BirchBark was thrilled to have a booth at the first Santa Cruz Mountains Pet Parade and Festival! This was a family-friendly celebration filled with delightful events for all, including Scotts Valley Police K9 demos, pet blessings, a costume contest, puppy cuteness overload, plus much more!
We can’t wait for next year!

Paint Your Pet, sponsored by the Painted Cork. February 3, 2019
Thank you to all our “artists” who attended this SOLD OUT event! And special thanks to Kimberly Godinho from The Painted Cork for guiding us through our masterpieces. Everyone enjoyed wine, great snacks and a lot of FUN. All funds raised from this event helped us to fund medical costs for pets whose families didn’t have the financial resources to save them without a little help. THANK YOU! We can’t wait to do this event again.
