Expo offers plenty for pet lovers

October 25, 2013 by  

The 7th annual Pittsburgh Pet Expo will be returning to Pittsburgh for three days this November. It is considered to be one of the largest consumer pet expos in the area.

Guests will be able to shop at vendors who will be selling pet-related merchandise and gift items. They will also be able to enter their pets in a costume contest, watch a performance of the 3 Rivers Dock Dogs, take part in the Pet Olympics, and watch the Rescue Rodeo Round up grooming competition. The Wildlife Defenders will host a “meet and greet” with animals, while guests can “ask a vet” any question and can also take part in a “baby-ready pets” workshop.

Special guests will also be on hand, such as Patricia Holcomb, who will be talking about handicapped pets, David Crawley, who will be reading from and signing copies of his books ‘Dog Poems’ and ‘Cat Poems’, and Belle, the therapy dog. There also expected to be a number of hands-on activities for pet lovers of all ages.

The event will likely be advertised widely throughout the Pittsburgh area using printing company products such as posters and flyers, as organizers look to make sure that all pet-loving folk in the area are aware of the event.

The Pittsburgh Pet Expo will take place at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center from November 1 to 3. Tickets are $8, $7 for seniors, and free for children aged 12 and under. To learn more, contact Rocco Lamanna at 412-310-7781.
