Pawmicon 2023

Enter YOUR Super Pet for a chance to fly high over San Diego on a BILLBOARD!

…And be featured as an Official SuperPet at this year’s PAWmicon Event!

By entering your pet’s photo and collecting votes HERE, your pet could not only be featured on a billboard as a superhero for animals everywhere, but could also be the new face of rescue with an Official SuperPet Standing Character Cutout at PAWmicon 2023!

Join us for PAWmicon Sunday, July 9th from 11 am-2:30 pm at Alesmith Tasting Room & Brewery!

Helen Woodward Animal Center is delighted to welcome pets and people back to PAWmicon for some nose-to-nose, meet-and-greet action.

This family-friendly event encourages attendees to grab their canine sidekick and celebrate with themed photo experiences, a 360 photo booth, custom fan art, music, games and activities for kids, a trivia competition, opportunity drawings, vendors and more. 

The highlight of the event is the all-important PAWSplay/Cosplay Contest for superheroes and their heroic dogs. 

The PAWSplay Contest is separated into three fun categories including Superheroes & Super Villains; Pop Culture Pups, and Dynamic Duos, Trios & More.

Plus, enter here for the chance to have YOUR PET be an OFFICIAL 2023 PAWmicon SuperPet.
The top four winners will have their own special Character Cutout at PAWmicon and will be on next year’s t-shirts. The first place winner will have their SuperPet displayed on a billboard over San Diego!

Proceeds from PAWmicon activities and contests, all support Helen Woodward Animal Center pets and programs.

At its core, this unique event has one life-saving mission:  To inspire individuals to perform a superhero action of their own and adopt an orphan pet.

Upon adoption, these furry sidekicks will quickly reveal their own superhero abilities to save us right back.

Grab your snuggly superhero and the whole family and head to PAWmicon at AleSmith Brewery on Sunday, July 9th, for a celebration of heroes big and small!
