The Westwood Recreation Center (1350 S. Sepulveda Blvd., L.A.) will be a barking lot from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Sept. 19 when the Doggie Street Festival (www.doggiestreetfestival.org) comes to town. This pet celebration and adopt-athon, which has taken place in cities across the U.S., offers Southern California animal lovers the opportunity to come together for a day of pet-related fun, and perhaps give a deserving dog or cat a new home. At last year’s festival, Angelenos adopted nearly 80 animals and, this year, the festival will host more than 40 rescue groups with animals looking for a new home.

Is your house already full of four-legged friends? Spoil them with the latest in pet food, fashion and other accessories from the variety of vendors in attendance. New this year is a kids stage where children can learn about pet adoption and create art projects. This free fest, full of fun ideas for kids,  will also feature music, an auction and the recognition of local pet advocates with DSF Hero Awards.
