Pet Retail World Plans NYC’s First Pet Product Sampling Event!

The holidays will be coming early for dog lovers in New York City as Pet Retail World celebrates the season of giving. On November 11-12, the weekend-long pop-up event will feature gift bags for attendees filled with hundreds of dollars worth of goodies (including an item from our PawZaar store!) for attendees, and will give the present of a better tomorrow to animals in Puerto Rico.

Presented by Buddy Belts, New York City’s first pet product sampling event will feature items from more than 100 different brands ranging from health care and safety products to toys and treats. While pet parents will enjoy mulling over merchandise at vendor booths, their pals with paws will love being pampered with complimentary grooming and massages by HandsOn, and both parents and pups can sip special cocktails and nom on hors d’oeuvres.

Run to Rescue Bracelet

One of the goodies many attendees will find in their gift bag is the Run to Rescue bracelet from our online store, PawZaar. A tribute to all the dogs who are waiting for their forever home, Run to Rescue features a dog silhouette on a stainless steel overlay on a black silicone band.


A limited number of tickets are available for $75 at, with those purchasing online saving $10 by using the code POPUP.
