Paws on 66 Pet Rescue Day

Saturday, June 18, 2022, 11a.m - 3p.m.
Downtown Joliet – across from the Rialto Theater

Join us on Saturday, June 18th from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. for the 4th Annual Paws on 66 Pet Rescue Day. Paws on 66 is an interactive event for all ages that allows you to showcase your rescue or organization to thousands of attendees who will spend a free, fun-filled day in Downtown Joliet. In addition to showcasing our local pet rescues, a number of NEW activities for pets and people are planned including demonstrations, crafters, and an Adopt a Balloon Animal booth.

Participation in Paws on 66 as a pet rescue or a non-profit service is free. We ask that pet rescue organizations provide some kind of fun, interactive, or educational activity for visitors. All other vendors will be charged a $60 vendor fee. Merchandise and craft vendors must sell pet- related products to be accepted into this event. Sponsorships are available. Checks can be made payable to Joliet City Center Partnership. The deadline for registration is Monday, May 9, 2022.

***If you are providing or selling food items for human consumption, a Will County Health Department Permit is REQUIRED.*** In order to avoid a late fee, all Health Department permits must be obtained no later than 1 week prior to the event.

All participants must provide a Certificate of Liability Insurance naming Joliet City Center Partnership, LLC, and the City of Joliet, as additional insureds.

Please complete the attached form to reserve your space. You can also sign up online below. For more information, contact Vicki at the Joliet City Center Partnership at 815-774-6064. Please send completed applications to or mail to the address above.

We’re excited for another day of fun festivities while finding forever homes for our furry friends!


We are now looking for sponsors to support Paws on 66 Pet Rescue Day, one of the most successful pet adoption days in the state of Illinois.  This is a great opportunity to market your business to hundreds of local families (and their pets)!  Many local rescues/shelters will be onsite with adoptable pets.  Regardless if you ready to adopt, kids will enjoy the free Adopt a Balloon Animal booth, face painting, character appearances, and more.  Everyone will enjoy DJ entertainment, demos by local K9 units and a pet fashion show.  For questions, please email Vicki Sanchez at
