What to Know

- Feb 23 and 24
- $25 one-day adult; $12.50 child
Forecasters kindly tell us if there's a chance of rain, and how humid it might be, and if we should pack a sunhat before leaving the house.
But forecasters who work in the Fido and feline fields really need to take on a different topic, one that covers how likely it is that our hearts will be fully and utterly tugged.
Even if you don't check the Fido/feline forecast before toodling in the direction of the Oxnard Performing Arts & Convention Center on Saturday, Feb. 23 or Sunday, Feb. 24, you can bet that there'll be a strong chance of "awwws," and "can I pet hims?," and "she's adorables."
Local news from across Southern California
For RESCUECON is loping into the space for two days of animal adoptions, bunny yoga, and a cat café, too.
The seriously important (and seriously sweet) centerpiece to the weekend festival is the free adoption fair, which will include a host of ready-to-be-adopted cuties, plus a spay & neuter clinic.
That's $10 per animal, but you'll want to register in advance.
As far as the paid convention goes? That's $25 to enter, if you're a grown-up, and $12.50 per child.
The large-scale, info-packed happening has more activities than a toy basket holds squeakies, so nosing over the list of animal-aiding events, spaniel-style, is a smart idea.
You heard about bunny yoga and the cat café, but a series of "breakout events," covering everything from squirrels to raptors to therapy dogs to "Helping Homeless Human-Animal Families," fills out the sizable schedule.
Do you live with a rescue? Do you want to live with a rescue? And do you to know how to help more animals in need, as well as a variety of topics that help our four-legged, wing-rocking, hare-tastic pals?
This is your informative, heart-tugging stop. The forecast? Pure love, all weekend, in Oxnard.
