The time to celebrate all our furry, scaly, and feathered friends has arrived!

The Vancouver Island Pet Expo is coming back next week, and we can’t wait to hang out with our favourite dogs, cats, rabbits, birds, hamsters and more.

This two-day event features a variety of animal-related contests, activities, exhibitors, and information sessions, so you can find everything you’ve ever wanted to know or buy for your pets under one roof.

Tricks and Treats

From seeing a ‘Dachshund Dash’ firsthand to watching incredibly talented canines catch some air (you’ll know what we’re talking about when you get there), this is the place to be for every animal lover in the city.

The pet expo also invites you to bring your own pets and enjoy a fun-filled weekend with all your family members – including the ones that have four legs and can’t talk!

There’s plenty of fun stuff for humans too. The first 100 people who get to the event will be given free goodie bags, in addition to all the grand prizes (like pet food supply for a year) and giveaways at the expo.
