Austin Pet Expo, Austin, TX, August 18, 2012

Recognized as one of the most Fido-friendly cities in the United States, Austin welcomes dog devotees to the Palmer Events Center for a day devoted to our four-legged friends.

Celebrity Spotting

  • Returning for a second year to the Austin Pet Expo, Shorty Rossi and his canine companion Hercules from the Animal Planet series Pit Boss will share his passion for protecting Pit Bulls as he signs autographs and poses for photos with his Fido-loving fans.


  • Dogs will show their dexterity during an agility demonstration, and once the talented tail-waggers’ work is through one lucky Fido from the audience will have the chance to follow in their footsteps on the course. If you want to find out how your Spot can learn these skills, a list of agility clubs will be available and a question and answer session will follow the presentation.
  • Let your barking buddy show off his or her Best Trick at the Animals Got Talent! contest.
  • Dogs will don disguises and pose for the public in the Pet Costume Contest.
  • A happening with heart, the Austin Pet Expo is hosting a mega-adoption event.
  • Browse among more than 125 exhibitor booths.

…and much more!
