Great Dane Club of Mid Florida members attend with their beloved rescued Great Danes to show their support at one of the largest rescue events in the state.

This popular event has evolved from one block and a handful of animal rescue groups in its first year to a popular and festive event representing rescue groups from throughout the region. Gulfport’s Get Rescued is one of the largest animal rescue events in the state, with all profits to benefit participating non-profit rescue groups.

Held annually in the month of February, animal rescue organizations with adoptable pets take over Beach Blvd to raise money and awareness for their causes. This daytime event (10am-6pm) is free for the publix to attend, with plenty of free parking in and around the area.

Additionally, animal-related vendors, artists and crafters offer their wares to festival-goers. Pet Related activities include an adoptable pet parade, pet care education, pet services, a pet food  and supplies drive, animal rescue groups, free samples, training demos, a Bark-B-Que, food, DJ music & more. Each year, thousands of attendees, many accompanied by their own critter companions, make their way to Gulfport to participate in what has become a beloved tradition.

Well behaved pets and their leashed people are welcome!
