As we turned the corner onto the street leading to the fairground, we knew we had arrived at one of the largest pet events in Northern California. Everywhere we looked were dogs. Dogs happily sticking their heads out of car windows, dogs waiting on leash at the crosswalk, dogs in strollers, a line of dogs and people at the entrance… dogs and their people everywhere.
From morning until closing the Bay Area Pet Expo bustled with throngs of people.
New families were formed as adoptions were made at the many animal rescue booths. Dogs of all sizes and breeds, cats, reptiles, birds, chinchillas, and even rats waited to be adopted. (Stay tuned for our next post about Pug Rescue of Sacramento’s involvement in the event.)
Demonstrations, shows, and contests drew crowds around and people and pets happily shopped for new treasures at the many specialty and food shop booths. It was a fun and successful event.
As usual we documented the day with photos. Check them out.
He’s taking a bath and by the look on his face, he’s enjoying it 😀
We learned at this booth that chinchillas actually take baths in a special dust (dust bath).

Don’t worry, he’s sleeping… at least that’s what they told me.
