Shorty Rossi, star of ‘Pit Boss’ on Animal Planet, will make an appearance with his popular canine sidekick, Hercules. As Rossi’s star has continued to rise, it’s only managed to allow him to make a bigger difference for his special passion: championing the cause of pit bulls. Not only will he be available for pictures and autographs all day, he’ll share how you can become an advocate for animals and help make a difference as well.
If you’re looking to add a pet to your family, a major highlight of the Houston Pet Expo is the Petfinder.com mega-adoption event, with over 200 adoptable pets available. Patti Welch, Vice President of Marketing and Sponsorships for the expo explains, “The Petfinder mega-adoption event is always a very popular part of this show. Nothing compares to seeing the connection between someone and their new forever pet friend.” As always, dozens of rescue groups will be on hand to answer your questions and help ensure that you find the pet that could be the very best fit for your unique family.
Welch adds, “There are so many pet-friendly resources available to pet lovers and owners in their communities and our goal is to help get that information out there. Plus, people have few options that allow them to spend a day bonding with their pet in an indoor environment where it’s all about the pets. This is a fun-filled, pet-friendly day for pet owners – or those who’d like to be!”
You also won’t want to miss the live entertainment and demos going on all day on multiple stages and activity courses. Don’t miss a second of the action of the Vergi Entertainment Stage. In addition, Swift Paws will host Lure Chasing on the Swift Paws Lure Chasing Course and Mic Mac Teaching for Dogs will feature activities on the Expo Activity Course. You can register your pet friend to take part in popular competitions such as the costume contest, talent contest or pet/owner musical chairs with awesome prizes from exhibitors that will be on site all day. There is even Dog Karaoke, where attendees compete to win a year supply of Natural Balance food for your pet.
As always, pets are welcome to attend the event, as long as they’re on a fixed lead and have proof of age-appropriate rabies vaccines. If your pet is not up-to-date, don’t worry. There will be discounted vaccinations and low-cost micro-chipping available sponsored by For Their Own Good. You can even take advantage of free nail trims courtesy of Hot Dog Grooming. In order to have the best day possible and take advantage of all the fun that the day has to offer, the folks at the Houston Pet Expo recommend that you visit their website (houstonpetexpo.com)
