12th Annual Pawsitively Matthews Event

If you’re a dog owner, or even just a dog lover, put Saturday, November 6th on your calendar. From 10am to 3pm, rain or shine, we have a fun and exciting day planned with all types of activities for dogs and their owners. Admission is FREE!

Get Ready for the 12th Annual Pawsitively Matthews EventPawsitively Beginnings

Paul Jamison, local Charlotte-area real estate Broker, author, radio show host, and founder of The Jamison Family of Companies created this annual event in 2009. He wanted to help his youngest son, Alex, celebrate his love of dogs and socialize with his friends, family, and the local Matthews, NC community. Whether you’re an annual attendee or a first time guest, this pet-friendly event is sure to please both dogs and people, too!

Activities for Humans

You’ll find a variety of food and craft vendors along the park, food trucks, a bounce house, a climbing wall, and much more! There are live demonstrations that are both educational and fun. Come out to meet and play with your neighbors and their dogs, stroll with a craft beer or glass of wine, do some early Holiday shopping, and enjoy live music with live music on the Lee Myers Stage. You can even spend time visiting with dogs available for adoption. Who knows? You may even take home a new furry friend!

It’s almost time for our annual Pawsitively Matthews event

Activities for Dogs

In addition to spending the day playing outside and meeting other dogs, your dog can take advantage of many activities planned just for furry attendees. Your dog can get their 3-year rabies vaccination booster shot. Pressly Animal Hospital will be available to provide rabies shots ($15) and micro-chipping ($20) quickly and easily. Micro-chipping puts owners at ease knowing that local vets, rescue centers, and animal control professionals can locate your pet easily if he ever goes missing.
