Santa Clara Valley may be better known today as Silicon Valley, but the area can also claim the nickname The Valley of the Heart’s Delight. In mid-March pet parents (and their dogs!) are invited to enjoy to their heart’s delight a weekend-long celebration of all our friends with fur, fins and feathers in the valley’s county seat, San Jose.
- Applaud dogs as they work their way through weave poles, tackle teeters and jump through tires during agility demonstrations.
- Pups can win a prize by donning a disguise for the Pet Costume Contest, showing their special skill in the Pet Talent Contest, or by posing with their pet parent in the pet/owner look-alike competition.
- The pet expo is also a mega-adoption event featuring adorable adoptables from area animal shelters and rescue organizations, including Bay Area Animal Rescue Crew (BAARC), DHS Friends of the SPCA Club, The Dog Spot Rescue, Friends of Silicon Valley Animal Control Authority, Mickaboo Companion Bird Rescue, Palomacy Pigeon and Dove Adoptions, Pug Rescue of Sacramento (PROS), San Jose Animal Care and Services (SJACS), Support Team Animal Rescue (STAR), USA Trophies (and Animal Rescue of Tracy), and more.
