Dogs and their pet parents can “Step Into Christmas” by stepping into the Georgia International Convention Center on December 17 – 18 for Amazing Pet Expo’s Pet Winter Wonderland– a weekend to celebrate the joy that all our friends with fur, fins and feathers bring to our lives!
- Rovers can run after a bogus “bunny” as they play on a Swift Paws lure chasing course.
- Applaud the clever canines who will tackle teeters, work their way through weave poles and jump through tires during an agility demonstration. One audience member and their tail-wagging chum at each demo will be invited to try out the course.
- Can your canine companion croon a holiday tune or dance like a sugar plum fairy? Let Spot show off his or her special skill during the Pet Talent Contest.
- Ho, ho, ho! Santa Paws is coming to town, and he will be posing for holiday photos with pooches and our pals who purr. Pictures with a higher purpose, funds raised from the festival photos will benefit rescue organizations.
- Spot can step on stage suited up like Saint Nick or a favorite superhero during the Pet Costume Contest.
- Take a stroll down Memory Lane as you and you fur baby play a dog-centric edition of a classic childhood game, Musical Chairs.
- Thanks to the pet expo, which is also a mega-adoption event, many companion animals who are looking for forever families to love will discover that “There’s No Place Like Home for the Holidays.” Among the animal rescue groups scheduled to attend the expo are Ahimsa House, Atlanta Humane Society, English Springer Rescue America, Georgia’s Homeless Pets, Georgia Pet T.A.I.L.S. Inc., Hootie’s Haven Animal Rescue, Luckie Street Sanctuary, Road Trip Home and Save Rocky the Great Dane Rescue and Rehab.
- Plus prize giveaways, free nail trims, discounted vaccinations, microchipping and heartworm and flea preventatives, book signings, a look at the latest pet products, and more!
