Viva the Vegas Pet Expo, which is celebrating its 6th year in America’s City of Lights with an illuminating weekend-long celebration of dogs, cats, and all our other friends with fur, fins and feathers!
- Applaud for displays of doggie dexterity as talented tail-waggers work their way through weave poles, tackle teeters and jump through tires during the Smarty Paws Agility Demonstrations.
- Spots can show off their special skills in the Entertainment Capital of the World during the Pet Talent Contest.
- Fashion forward Fidos who want to strike a pose as a showgirl or be the canine king or rock and roll can step into disguises in order to win prizes in the Pet Costume Contest.
- Share a cherished childhood memory with your fur baby as the two of you play a dog-centric edition of Musical Chairs.
- Give a cheer for your barking buddy as he bounds after a bogus “bunny” in the K-9 Allure Lure Course. (All runs are $5.)
- Las Vegas is known as The Capital of Second Chances, and during the Vegas Pet Expo dogs, cats, birds and other companion animals who have been given a second chance by rescue organizations will have the opportunity to meet potential pet parents! Adorable adoptables from Golden Retriever Rescue Southern Nevada, Las Vegas Boxer Rescue, Las Vegas Labrador Rescue, Lone Woof Rescue, Old English Sheep Dog Rescue, Southern Nevada Parrot Education, Rescue & Rehoming Society, Southwest Exotic Avian Rescue, The Animal Foundation, Those Left Behind, and other area shelters and rescues are scheduled to attend.
- Plus prize giveaways, free nail trims, discounted vaccinations, microchipping and flea and heart worm preventatives, book signings, a look at the latest pet products, and much more!
