Arizona pet parents can treat their pal with paws to a frightfully fun day of play at the Tucson Pet Expo, a pre-Halloween celebration of dogs, cats, and all of our other friends with fur, fins and feathers!
- A canine-loving crowd will be howling with laughter as they cheer for the plethora of puppy pumpkins, barking bumble bees, tail-wagging wizards and four-legged Frankensteins who will get in the ‘spirit’ of the Halloween season during the Ultimate Pet Costume Contest. One lucky dog (or other costume-clad companion animal) will win a $2,000 grand prize.
- Is your barking buddy a Broadway musical-loving hound that can croon a tune from “Hamilton?” Is Fido a four-legged Fred Astaire? Dogs are invited to show off their special skills in the Pet Talent Contest.
- Applaud dogs’ abilities during agility demonstrations, which include tackling teeters, tires and weave poles.
- Walking counter-clockwise with your canine companion will turn into a walk down Memory Lane as you play a Rover-fied rendition of the childhood game Musical Chairs.
- Looking to ‘scare up’ forever pet parents for adorable adoptables, the pre-Halloween pet expo is also a mega-adoption event that will feature fur babies from such area rescue groups as Arizona Puggle Rescue, AZ Pocket Angels Pet Rescue, BARK: Baby Animal Rescue Koalition, D-S Rescue, Desert Harbor Doberman Rescue, Horse ‘N Around Rescue Ranch and Foundation, Miss Maggie May’s Rescue, Rescue a Golden of AZ, and more.
- Plus prize giveaways, free nail trims, discounted vaccinations, microchipping and heart worm and flea preventatives, book signings, a look at the latest pet products, exhibitor booths, and much more!
When: October 29, 2016 from 10 a.m. – 7 p.m.
Where: Tucson Convention Center at 260 South Church Avenue in Tucson, Arizona
