Pet lovers in the Austin area should get their four-legged friends ready for the 2012 Austin Pet Expo, Saturday, August 18th, 2012 at Palmer Events Center. This free indoor event attracts thousands of pet lovers looking to enjoy a day out with their furry, feathered or reptilian pals!
From 10 AM to 6 PM, the expo will be packed with an abundance of local and nationally-recognized veterinarians, groomers, trainers, retailers and organizations primarily geared towards pet lovers. Whether you’d like to learn, shop, play, or adopt, this is an event you won’t want to miss!
The Austin Pet Expo is organized by Amazing Pet Expos, which currently produces more than 27 pet expos around the country; all of them indoors and free to the general public.
Shorty Rossi, star of ‘Pit Boss’ on Animal Planet and the official spokesperson for Amazing Pet Expos, will be making an appearance with his popular canine sidekick, Hercules. Rossi has a special passion that has been a major part of his life since he was a teenager – championing the cause of pit bulls. When Rossi isn’t managing Shortywood Productions, a company that works with little people in the entertainment industry, or filming ‘Pit Boss,’ he’s working with Shorty’s Pit Bull Rescue, a charity he formed that rescues, rehabilitates and places neglected and abused pit bulls in loving, nurturing homes. Rossi will not only be educating about the myths surrounding Breed Specific Legislation, but he’ll be available for autographs and photos all day.
The Palmer Events Center is located at 900 Barton Springs Rd. Parking is available at the Palmer Parking Garage, adjacent to the facility with two entrances (from Barton Springs Road or Riverside Drive). – 2012 Amazing Pet Expos
