Calling all ARF pets and their human companions: the Animal Rescue Fund of the Hamptons will celebrate its 50th anniversary on Saturday with "a tail-wagging pet fair dedicated to the joy our cats and dogs bring and the impact of ARF's rescue efforts for the last 50 years, and the next 50 years to come," the organization said in an announcement.

From 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at its welcome center in Wainscott, there will be contests, food trucks, live music, vendors, a dog agility course, free nail clipping and microchipping for pets, a photo mosaic project, and free coffee and treats donated by Hampton Coffee Company, Dylan's Candy Bar, and the Lexus and Mercedes Benz dealerships in Southampton. There will also be information available about ARF's programs and services, including pet socialization and training classes, spaying and neutering, volunteer opportunities, the pet food pantry, and more.

Admission is free, though participants are encouraged to donate unopened bags of pet food or treats for the food pantry. Dogs must be leashed and cats must be in carriers. ARF's welcome center is at 124 Daniels Hole Road.
