2nd ANNUAL PET EXPO TO BENEFIT THE HENRICO HUMANE SOCIETY
Family Fun for All – Pet Contests, Vendors, Kid’s Area, Adoptable Dogs and More
Henrico Humane Society (HHS) will hold its 22nd annual Pet Expo on Saturday, February 25, 2023, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at Richmond Raceway Complex, 600 E. Laburnum Ave., Richmond, Va. 23222.
Pet Expo is a family and pet friendly event designed with your pet in mind! A full day of activities is scheduled including a pet parade, puppy and Dachshund races, dog contests, a lure course, dog adoptions and several silent auctions. The Kid’s Area will have fun activities and an ‘adoption stand’ with stuffed animals. Over 50 vendors will be onsite selling pet-related products and services. Attendees can find everything from unique collars to toys and treats made just for the dog in your life to obedience trainers! CBS6 Richmond TV personality Greg McQuade is scheduled to emcee.
“The Pet Expo combines family fun with pet-friendly events and activities for everyone,” HHS Vice President and event organizer Melissa Golden said. “As our flagship fundraising event for more than two decades, the Pet Expo enables us to continue to rescue animals and provide the medical care and support so many of them need before they can be adopted.”
The 50/50 raffle winner will be announced at Pet Expo. Attendance is not required to win. Just 1,000 tickets are available for purchase giving one lucky winner the opportunity to pocket $5,000! Tickets can be purchased for $10 each online or at the Pet Expo event.
The event is sponsored by local organizations and companies that make a difference in the community. The Diamond level sponsor is Henrico County. Platinum level sponsors include CBS 6, Holiday Barn Pet Resorts, Nestle Purina PetCare, Petco Love, Richmond Family Magazine and Toby Town RVA. Their continued support helps make this annual event possible.
Admission is $10 for adults at the door and $5 for children ages 6-12; children under 6 and pets are free. Tickets can be purchased online for $8 prior to the event. All proceeds benefit Henrico Humane Society. For more information on the Pet Expo, visit the HHS Facebook page or check out their website.
