Redding pet lovers anticipate April event

March 20, 2017 by  

The Pet Expo Sanctuary will be hosting its tenth Love Your Pet Expo & North-State Super Adoption Event early next month. Pets, their owners, and people interested in getting a new pet are invited to attend.

Attendees from Redding can join in contests that will include ‘The Joke’s On Us’, a costume contest called ‘The Punch Line’, ‘Funniest Pet Trick’, and ‘Pet Owner Look Alike’. Cameras will be encouraged, and winners can take these pictures for future poster printing.

Guests might also enjoy demonstrations such as a dog bite prevention event and a Shasta dogs herding demo. Booths will be passing out information and demos on animal health such as dental care. Local pet organizations, pet supply stores, and other vendors will be giving out free samples, promotional products, and displaying their goods and services. Pets and their owners will enjoy playing games and participating in activities. There will also be both live and silent auctions in which to take part.

Shasta & Tehama County rescue will bring pets available for adoption. Pet registration and micro chipping can be during the event. Heartworm testing and low-cost rattle snake vaccinations will also be available on the day.

The event is slated rain or shine for Saturday, April 1, running from 10:00 am until 4:00 pm at the Shasta Fairgrounds, 1890 Briggs Street in Anderson.
