The New Year’s streamers, noisemakers and festive hats have all been put away by the first full weekend in January, but for our pals with paws the party is just getting started as the year’s first Amazing Pet Expo gets underway!
Taking place in Pomona, California, pet parents and their dogs can enjoy a two-day celebration of the happiness that all our friends with fur, fins and feathers bring to our lives.
- Can your canine companion croon a tune? Does your tail-wagging chum know how to Two Step? Cheer as your barking buddy shows off his or her special ability in the Pet Talent Contest.
- Spot can step on stage in style during the Pet Costume Contest.
- Enjoy a nostalgic trip down Memory Lane as you walk with Rover during a dog-themed edition of the children’s game Musical Chairs.
- The start of the new year will be the start of a new chapter in the lives of homeless animals thanks to the pet expo, which is also a mega-adoption event. Potential pet parents will have the chance to meet adorable, adoptable companion animals from the following rescue organizations and shelters: Beagles & Buddies, Daisy’s Hope Foundation, Designer Dog Rescue, Foster Army Animal Rescue, Friends of Upland Animal Shelter, From Cloud to Ground Animal Rescue, Hope to Home for Cats, Kitty Devore Rescue, Last Call K-9 Rescue, No Kill Kern Dog Rescue, P.A.T.C.H. Rescue, Recycled Love Dog Rescue, Somebunny Loves Me Rabbit Rescue, Westside German Shepherd Rescue of Los Angeles, and more.
- Plus prize giveaways, free nail trims, discounted vaccinations, microchipping and heart worm and flea preventatives, book signings, vendor booths brimming with the latest pet products, and much more!
