City of St. Louis Animal Care and Control (ACC) is proud to be a partner in this event, and visitors should expect to see ACC's presence throughout the event. 

Members of ACC staff will be assisting in completing rabies certification paperwork as animals receive their vaccinations. Additionally, one of our veterinary technicians will assist in microchipping animals. Stop by the ACC booth for information concerning services, as well as information about safety around animals.

ACC Officers will be patrolling the event to ensure the safety of all animals (and their human counterparts, for that matter). Since all dogs are required to be on a leash, Officers will also have leashes on hand for anyone that forgets theirs at home.
