-- St. Louis, MO - Amazing Pet Expos, a St. Louis-based company that organizes and produces annual pet expos, has expanded to 19 different cities in 2012. If you’ve attended this super fun expo with your pet pal, then you already know that this popular indoor event attracts thousands of pet lovers looking to enjoy a day out with their furry, feathered or reptilian pals. Now pet lovers have one more reason to attend these events: the addition of VCA Animal Hospitals (VCA) as a sponsor and proud supporter of the pet rescue community.
VCA is one of the nation’s leading networks of animal hospitals with more than 540 hospitals in 41 states across the nation. These hospitals are staffed by more than 1,800 fully qualified, dedicated and compassionate veterinarians and more than 200 are board-certified specialists. VCA provides a full range of general medical and surgical services as well as specialized treatments
“We are pleased to partner with the Amazing Pet Expos as a participating sponsor,” Sr. Marketing Manager Dory Andraos said. “VCA proudly supports pet adoption and local animal shelters/rescue organizations at these events. VCA is there to assist animal shelters/rescue organizations’
adoption efforts by offering new pet parenting kits (includes helpful medical and behavioral information plus a free first exam certificate)
to all pet adopters at Amazing Pet Expo events. Our goal is to make sure pets adopted at the event and in the community are off to a healthy start with their new pet parents.
So what exactly is an Amazing Pet Expo? It's a free one-day event for the whole family, including your favorite pet buddy, which can be your pooch or your bird or even your lizard. Packed with local and nationally-recognized veterinarians, groomers, trainers, retailers and organizations primarily geared towards pet lovers, these shows offer something for everyone. Whether you’d like to learn, shop, play or adopt, this is an event you won’t want to miss! In fact, more than 120,000 pet lovers attended one of the 11 Amazing Pet Expo in 2011.
Because Amazing Pet Expos is all about providing their attendees with quality information, educating guests about the importance of pet healthcare is a given. VCA will be on-site to provide free cursory exams (when possible), as well as educate attendees about the importance of proper nutrition and parasite prevention. Guests will also be able to enter a prize giveaway opportunity for a VCA pet healthcare package.
