The world’s largest pet and pet product expo, America’s Family Pet Expo, hosted by the World Pet Association (WPA), returns to the OC Fair & Event Center in Costa Mesa, Calif., April 15-17. The three-day event is recognized not only for its family-friendly entertainment, shopping and stage shows, but also for its notable history of educating people surrounding responsible pet care and placing animals in forever homes.
Since 1996 WPA has assisted in facilitating more than 6,400 animal adoptions, with a record-breaking 668 pets placed with families at last year’s event. With WPA’s commitment to promoting responsible pet care, all of the show space reserved for adoption agencies and rescue organizations is either donated or offered at a reduced price on behalf of WPA. Additionally, VCA Animal Hospitals, this year’s pet adoption sponsor, will offer a certificate for a free first exam at one of its hospitals to ensure each adoptee has a healthy start.
