Originated in San Diego 10 years ago, the festival has since expanded to Los Angeles as well, making Phoenix the only location outside of southern California.
Its mission is to end pet homelessness by adding to the hundreds of dogs and cats that have already been adopted at the yearly festivals.
Saturday will be the organization’s first festival of 2019 for man’s best friend.
