Did you know that almost half of all Las Vegas residents own a dog? Many other Las Vegans are the proud parents of cats, fish, birds, pigs, rodents and reptiles. Mix 94.1’s Pet-a-Palooza celebrated our love affair with our pets with a day in the park where you could bring your pet, listen to great live music, eat delicious food, shop for both you and your pet, visit with many animal exhibitors and even adopt a new pet.
