For everyone’s safety and to have the best time, please see the following:

No retractable leashes, and please clean up after your pets. If pets get unruly and aggressive, we will ask you to leave for your pet’s safety and the safety of others.

 

Since the event’s inception in 2016, we have raised over $550,000 for the military, veterans, and their families with gifts and sponsored adoption fees for homeless pets at various rescue organizations!

 

Like all Traci’s Paws events, we will practice all safety precautions as the CDC and San Diego County requested. Please respect our COVID-Safe Rules and respect anyone who may choose to wear a mask outdoors.

Attending a large gathering or event increases one’s chance of being in close contact with people outside one’s household and being exposed to COVID-19.

Masks are not required outdoors but are highly suggested when entering the Military Appreciation Gift Shop or other enclosed areas where distancing from others is not feasible or for those at higher risk of illness/living with someone at higher risk of illness.

If you are not fully vaccinated, please wear your mask, wash your hands or use hand sanitizer, and maintain a minimum distance of 6 feet from other patrons.

Before the event, we suggest all attendees get fully vaccinated, wear the safest masks to prevent illness, and get tested. Attendees and volunteers should plan not to attend if they test positive for COVID-19.

 

 

MILITARY/VETERAN TICKETS: You will order 1 ticket for EACH dependent in your immediate family. Each person must have a military or government-issued ID.
