  • How do I get in touch?

    Please provide your contact info, and we will get in touch as soon as possible!

  • What will the money raised at Pet Expo be used for?

    The majority of the money raised through admission fees will be used to cover medical expenses for the animals in our care.  In 2015 we spent $170,000 on doctor visits, medications, surgical procedures and other medical-related expenses which adoption fees don’t entirely cover.

  • Can′t come to the event, but still want exposure to pet lovers attending Pet Expo?

    Consider advertising in the event program.

    You can also donate an item to be used in the Silent Auction. The emcee routinely announces many items available in the auction over the loudspeaker for all attendees to hear. Contact us if you have an item to donate but will not be attending the event.
