There are so many pet expos scheduled this year that you could almost go to one every month. Every expo has different events, but if you’re looking to adopt a new pet or put your current pet into a competition, you will definitely be able to find one that suits your needs. So take a look at these upcoming pet expos and see which one you might want to attend.
Fort Meade Pet Expo – May 30-31
This free two-day, pet-friendly event will feature an Adoption Corner where you can adopt various animals such as greyhounds, Yorkies, ferrets and kittens. So if you’re looking for a furry friend, this is the place to go. In addition, they will have fly ball races for dogs, free health exams and a fashion show.
Long Island Pet Expo – September 11-13
In 2007 this event was packed with special guests and fun filled activities. Their Dog Arena had demonstrations and programs, and there was even a Rainforest Reptile Show with turtles, lizards, alligators and snakes. Some experts included Karen Kober (animal communicator), Jeff Kolbjornsen (New York’s dog whisperer) and Jillie Dog (tricked trained Yorkie and the world’s only Poker playing dog). This year it will be held in Brentwood, New York.
