The Butte-Silver Bow Animals Services Department would like to remind attendees at the 2016 Montana Folk Festival that pets are not allowed in the festival area and should be kept safe at home, the hotel, or a local pet boarding business.
The Montana Folk Festival is one of Butte’s showcase events – for people. A combination of hot weather and bustling crowds make the event very stressful and unsafe for pets. Because of this, it is best for your pet and for the festival to leave pets in a safe, cool location with food and water. Do not leave pets in vehicles, particularly in the July heat; It is hazardous to their health.
Enjoy the 2016 Montana Folk Festival, and keep our furry friends safe and healthy!
