Save the date, April 14 - 15, for the most pet-related fun in metro KC this spring. The second annual Great KC Pet Expo returns to the Overland Park International Trade Center for a weekend of shopping, contests, entertainment, education, adoptions and more for pet lovers.

The trade show will WOW pet owners with products and services they can't always find at brick and mortar stores. "We have a lot of exhibitors who just do shows, so their products (like handmade collars and beds, new-to-the-market training leashes, and even new "green" bug repellants that are pet friendly) aren't available in stores," explains Expo producer Cathy Erickson. "It's like a mall for pets!"

Whether pet lovers want to find that perfect pet bed, learn more about pet food ingredients or witness the crowning of the Champion "Ultimate Stay" dog, the Great KC Pet Expo offers owners and critters two-days of fun. That's right, pets are welcome too! Last year over 500 pets passed through the gates of the Great KC Pet Expo. All pets in attendance must be at least one year old, properly vaccinated and either carried or on a short leash (no retractable leashes). A release form is required for each pet.
