Pet Lovers Expo Set For Oct. 30

Pet lovers in the St. Louis Metro Area should mark their calendars for the 2010 Saint Louis Pet Lover’s Expo, Saturday, October 30th, 2010 at the St. Charles Convention Center. This free event (with free parking!) attracts thousands of pet lovers looking to enjoy a day out with their furry friend.

Between the hours of 10 AM and 6 PM, the Expo will be packed with more then 150 local and nationally-recognized veterinarians, groomers, trainers, retailers and organizations all geared towards pet lovers. Whether you’d like to learn, shop, play or adopt, this an event you won’t want to miss!

Because the 2010 Saint Louis Pet Lover’s Expo is also designed to promote responsible pet ownership, the highlight of the day will be a mega-adoption event. If you’re looking to add a new member to your family, more than 400 pets will be available for adoption, along with information from dozens of local rescue groups and shelters.

If it’s entertainment or live demonstrations that you’re interested in, you’ll have ample opportunity to watch – and take part in – the day’s events. You can sign your dog, cat or animal friend up to participate in several competitions, such as the costume contest, talent contest or fashion show. Your pet can also try out the agility or flyball courses after local pets demonstrate why these action sports are so popular. If you’re interested in pet care, obedience training, author book-signings, activism and more, the entertainment stage will keep you busy all day.

Of course, pets are welcome to attend the event, provided that they are on a fixed lead and have current vaccinations. Not up to date on vaccinations? Don’t worry! There will be discounted vaccinations and low-cost microchipping available. You can even get free nail trimming!
