Pistons & Paws: Cars, Motorcycles, Adoptable Pets!


Pet enthusiasts and car or motorcycle fans – and, particularly, those who like them all -- will enjoy “Pistons & Paws,” a combined free automobile/motorcycle show and pet adoption event from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, June 16, 2018 at Anne Arundel County Animal Control, 411 Maxwell Frye Rd., Millersville, MD.


In addition to the lineup of “pistons,” there will be many “paws” -- adoptable pets -- available from both the shelter and some of its rescue group partners, plus food and other vendors, D.J. music and activities by the Anne Arundel County Police and Fire Departments, including a K-9 demonstration. A 50/50 raffle and a silent auction, both sponsored by Friends of Anne Arundel County Animal Control, will benefit the homeless pets at the shelter.


Owners of cars and bikes of all kinds are encouraged to enter their rides in the show and compete for awards in several categories, including one-of-a-kind handmade Best in Show trophies for both cars and bikes. Free vehicle registration will begin at 8 a.m. the day of the show at the shelter, which is surrounded by large parking lots. Owners of the first 50 cars to register will receive a custom Pistons & Paws dash plaque.


This is the fifth year that Anne Arundel County Animal Control has combined a vehicle show with a pet adoption event. Such “nontraditional” shelter events help Anne Arundel County Animal Control reach new potential adopters for its animals and expands the public’s awareness of the shelter’s programs. 


Pistons & Paws is co-sponsored by Friends of Anne Arundel County Animal Control, a nonprofit charity created by the shelter’s volunteers to help its homeless animals, and Annapolis Car Enthusiasts (ACE). The rain date is June 23, same time and location.


Anne Arundel County Animal Control, part of the county’s Police Department, adopted out 1,605 animals in 2017. An additional 891 pets left with animal rescue groups that partnered with the shelter to find them new homes, and another 770 lost animals were reunited with their owners at the shelter.
