Oxford Film Festival and MS Critterz are partnering up for a Pet Fest on June 15 at the Old Armory Pavilion in Oxford. This will be a 70-minute block of short cat videos from Oscillope Laboratories, lawn party and pet activities. The event will raise funds for MS Critterz, Oxford’s local no-kill pet shelter, and the Oxford Film Festival.
The lawn party will be held from 5-7:30 p.m. and the movies will be from 7:30-9 p.m. at the Old Armory Pavilion on the corner of University and Bramlett Blvd. Children, pets and lawn chairs are encouraged. Tickets are $5 and can be purchased here.
Photos by Joey Brent will be printing and Paw Print Art by Clay Canvas will be providing additional activities for your pet. For $5 you can get a photo with your pet including a 3×5 print or you can also get a paw print in clay. These could make great Father’s Day gifts.
Food will be available for sale from Dodo Pizza and Oxsicles with 15% sold going to the fundraiser. Waters, sodas, popcorn are also for sale by Oxford Film Festival. Picnic baskets are welcome. Pets can also enjoy free treats from Stella and Chewy’s.

Sixty percent of the proceeds will go to MS Critterz and 40% to Oxford Film Festival. A trailer for CatVideo Fest is available here.

Our mission is to provide temporary shelter to stray, abandoned, and surrendered animals for the purpose of finding permanent suitable homes, to promote adoptions, to find foster homes, and to organize transports to reputable animal shelters/rescue groups to help reduce excessive euthanasia with the goal of no-kill (90% live release rate) within our community, provide referrals for low cost spay/neuter services from participating veterinarians, and the humane treatment of animals within our community.

About CatVideoFest: Each year, CatVideoFest curates a compilation reel of the latest, best cat videos culled from countless hours of unique submissions and sourced animations, music videos, and, of course, classic internet powerhouses. Screening events take place all over the world in a host of venues and raise money for cats in need, often through partnerships with local cat charities, animal welfare organizations, and shelters to identify how best to serve cats in the area. The all-new edition will begin in February of 2019 and Oscilloscope plans to bring CatVideoFest to hundreds of theaters around the globe where patrons can enjoy the shared experience of communal joy that these videos bring out. What better way for us humans to come together than by watching cats.
