Puppy Palooza, an event hosted by Midtown Village to benefit the West Alabama Humane Society, will return to Tuscaloosa this weekend.

The West Alabama Humane Society is a nonprofit organization that cares for both dogs and cats that are "orphaned or unwanted," according to their website. In addition to providing shelter and veterinary care for the animals they tend to, they also assist current pet owners with finding lost pets and aiding in paying vet bills "if it allows the pet to stay in their home."

This year's Puppy Palooza follows the success of last year's inaugural event.

“With more than 1,000 attendees last year, this event is definitely a personal favorite at Midtown Village,” said Hollyann Bemis, marketing associate at Crawford Square Real Estate Advisors. “We know that pets are important members of the family and should be celebrated too!”

Puppy Palooza, which will occur on April 28, will offer a wealth of activities for both human and canine participants, including live music, a puppy photo booth, face painting, a caricature artist, a bounce house, an on-site talent show hosted by the Tuscaloosa-based dog-training facility Bark University and much more. All proceeds from the event will go to the West Alabama Humane Society to help pay for their services.

Puppy Palooza will also feature a "Fido Marketplace," which will include 25 "pup-friendly vendors," such as Hand In Paw, Fosters Veterinary Clinic, Blind Dog Biscuit, The Wizard of Paws LLC, Adams Beverages, Wags to Riches Pet Photography, and many others.

Beyond the Fido Marketplace, Metro Animal Shelter and The West Alabama Humane Society will have dogs at the event available for adoption.
