San Diego’s largest and most fun Pet & Military Appreciation event of the year,  “Unleash the Holiday Cheer presented by The McBeth Foundation”, and special thanks to our platinum partner, Batta Fulkerson Law Group.

Bringing our community together to raise awareness to pet adoption and military appreciation with a FUN pet and kid friendly holiday festival.

You and your family and pets will enjoy many activities like a game truck, laser tag, entertainment including a singer, Holiday Vendor Village for holiday Shopping, Santa’s Workshop with fun craft activities and Santa’s Village where you can meet and take photos of you, your kids, pets, and family with Santa!


This year our event is FREE to all! Since 2016, Traci’s Paws has raised $103,421.85 in gifts that have gone to 127 military families, and raised an additional $31,197.45 that has gone to help save over 60 homeless pets lives and unite them with some of these amazing military families!



CIVILIANS: We will have 50 VIP Gift bags for $10. These can be ordered ahead of time through November 30th at 7pm PST ONLY, and may be picked up the day of event. Each bag will have your name for easy pick up. The entire event’s activities are free except for Raffle tickets and vendors selling their products or services, and rescues collecting deposits along with their Adoption Applications at the Pet Adoption Village.

We will have a list with names and how many tickets to give at the Welcome Booth, please bring your ID with name that you ordered with or copy of your Eventbrite ticket.


If you order a Military Entry Ticket you must show proof of ID at the event in order to receive your Welcome Bag and Military Appreciation Drawing tickets.

Each Military Family with ID will receive one complimentary Welcome bag, and will receive complimentary Military Appreciation Drawing tickets for each item we have available on the day of the event. You must be present to win, sadly we do not have the funding to mail gifts.

If you are approved for a Pet Adoption through the 4th Annual Unleash the Holiday Cheer, we may be able to sponsor your pet adoption fee as long as funds are available. 2016-2018, we raised $31,197 to sponsor pet adoption fees for our local military and veteran community.
