February is the Month of Love, and during the third weekend of the month devotees of dogs near Del Mar, California are invited to celebrate the love that all of our friends with fur, fins and feathers bring to our lives at the San Diego Pet Expo!
- Cheer on dogs as they dart through weave poles, tackle teeters and jump through tires during agility demonstrations.
- Can your canine companion croon a tune? Does Fido’s fancy footwork rival that of Fred Astaire? The Pet Talent Contest is your barking buddy’s chance to show off a special skill.
- “Putting on the dog” in order to wow the crowd, canines in disguises will try to win prizes during the Pet Costume Contest.
- Take a walk back in time with your tail-wagging chum as you play a dog-centric edition of the classic childhood game Musical Chairs.
- The pet expo is also a mega-adoption event featuring adorable adoptables from area animal rescues and shelters, including County Animal Services, Forgotten Angels Cat Rescue, Hoofs and Woofs Animal Rescue, Hope to Home for Cats, Jackie Blue’s Rescue Angels, Kitty Devore Rescue, Labs and More, Passion for Pitties, Perrito Munguia Rescue, Pug Rescue of San Diego County, Recycled Love Dog Rescue, San Diego Humane Society, Second Chance Dog Rescue, Shay’s Strays, and more.
- Plus prize giveaways, free nail trims, discounted vaccinations, microchipping and heartworm and flea preventatives, book signings, a look at the latest pet products, and much more!
