“The Pet Expo is excited and proud to once again bring responsible pet care, entertainment, and pet adoptions to Orange County for the 27th year” said Doug Poindexter, President of the World Pet Association, producers of the America’s Family Pet Expo. “As the years progress, so does the show, with a variety of educational presentations, product launches, amazing pet acts and our popular animal adoptions. The Pet Expo truly is the place for anything pet-related.”

Last year 45,000 guests visited the America’s Family Pet Expo showing a 5% increase from 2014. There were more than 600 animal adoptions including dogs, cats – and even a few guinea pigs –that were adopted into “forever homes” from the Pet Expo’s Southern California animal rescue partner organizations

New to the Pet Expo, is an adorable collection of mini farm animals including mini donkeys, mini cattle, mini sheep, mini dairy goats, chickens, rabbits, and pot belly pigs. For equine lovers, horses from Camp Rusk Foundation for Retired Horses will make their debut.

Returning fan favorites include Splash Dogs, offering a wet-and-wild canine competition, and the Police Dog & Protection Demonstrations, crime fighting dogs in action showing how they serve and protect our community. The Free Flight Bird Show, where magnificent birds spread their wings and take flight, will perform throughout the weekend.

Kids can get in on the action by designing and creating a 10-gallon aquarium in the Kids Aquarium Contest. There will also be pony rides, face paintings, and The Great American Petting Zoo for the whole family to enjoy.

Pet Adoptions will be handled on site for those looking for that “purrfect” animal addition to the family. There will be hundreds of animals hoping to find their forever home from local community partner organizations at the Pet Expo.

  1. I have never been to the Pet Expo. We have a dog and two cats.

  2. My fear is I would go to this event and come home with 5 more pets to add to our menagerie. (major animal lover here!)
