Our Mission & Goals

Our mission is to educate pet lovers, promote pet adoption, let animal lovers know how they can make a difference and expose pet owners to the many valuable resources available to them in their own community. In doing so, we connect pet owners with your pet business. 

What is a Pet Expo?

A pet friendly, indoor event with over a hundred exhibitors, dozens of features for pet owners including but not limited to low cost vaccinations, creature features, exotic bird areas, a training hub, agility and lure courses, stage presentations and talent and costume contests with prizes for everyone. A Pet Expo is also an adoption opportunity, where rescue organizations are invited to exhibit for free when they bring along their rescue-able pets.  Our Expos are an all inclusive event – no species is left out. Every exhibitor specifically caters to the needs of pet owners so entire families attend with their furry friends to shop, explore, learn and adopt.  

Our History

Since our first Pet Expo in St. Louis, MO in 2009, we have had the pleasure of producing more than 250 pet events throughout the United States. From Anchorage to Miami, Boston to LA, we have met a lot of pets and pet-lovers over the years. 

One thing that never changes is the need to connect pet parents and pet-lovers with the multitude of local and national pet services and resources available to them. And even more importantly, connecting rescue groups with potential adopters, fosters, volunteers and donors. 

We are proud that our pet events have generated thousands of connections and found homes for countless pets. 

Our pet expos are built on the core philosophy that pets are family, and will always be welcome to attend our events, regardless of breed, and that education is the first step toward building a world of compassionate and responsible pet parents. 

We invite you and your pet to shop,  learn, play & adopt at the Pet Expo near you
