On Saturday "PetFest" will celebrate pets with a day-long event in Bridgehampton. Included in the day is a catered dog-friendly lunch, pet ID tagging, kids backpacks, kids against animal cruelty bracelets and PetFest gift bags with goodies for the first 250 guests to preregister.

The "Paws Across The Hamptons" dog walk will also take place to benefit Pet Philanthropy Circle. Starting at the Bridgehampton Historical Museum, participants will join lead sponsors Andy Sabin and Amy Ma with pets Panda and Geisha, Dan Rattiner with dog Bella, and Tony Award winning animal trainer Bill Berloni with Sandy, the lead pup in Broadway's Annie. The same group that lead the premier "Paws" walk.

"I am thrilled to return to support an event I help kick off many years ago. It shows the support the people of the Hamptons have for animal welfare. And what's better than spending a day with people who love animals? Plus, I get to share my dog Sunny who plays Sandy in the Broadway revival of Annie. She shows shelter dogs are all stars," said Berloni.

"What I like about the Paws Across The Hamptons event is the awareness it brings to Jewel Morris and Pet Philanthropy Circle, an organization where everyone is a volunteer and all monies raised go to charities looking out for the welfare of animals. All overhead is donated," Sabin informed.

The walk is $25 for adults and $15 for teens, kids under 12 are free. In attendance will be Lou Wegner, the 17-year-old Junior Ambassador to both the Humane Society and the Pet Philanthropy Circle. His organization Kids Against Animal Cruelty has 50,000 members in 15 states.

Also included in the "PetFest" day are pet acts, pet photos, face painting, live pony rides, local and national animal rescues, onsite pet adoption, exhibits, and pet products. Guests can also bring items for the Subaru "Love a Pet" Outback Shelter donation drive.
