Phoenix Pet Expo made it's Valley debut in 2010. Attendees can browse vendor booths, talk to vendors about the various products available for their pets, attend seminars and participate in activities. Well behaved pets, leashed and with proof of vaccinations, are welcome. "Shop * Learn * Play * Adopt" is the theme of this event.

More than 130 exhibitors will be in attendance with products and services for dogs, cats, ferrets, parrots, and horses, too!

When is it?

Friday, April 14, 2017 from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Saturday, April 15, 2017 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Where is it?

Phoenix Pet Expo moved to a new location in 2015. It is held at WestWorld in Scottsdale. Here's a map with directions to WestWorld. There is a charge to park.

How do I get tickets and how much are they?

No tickets are necessary. Admission is free.

What happens at Phoenix Pet Expo?

Rescue groups, shelters, vets, clinics, trainers, kennels and more are scheduled to be represented. There will be opportunities for pet adoptions at this event. Prize giveaways, discounted vaccinations and microchipping, book signings, free nail trims, agility demonstrations, entertainment, costume contest, obedience demonstrations and more.

For the Pet Costume Contest each pet must wear a costume during the competition period to be eligible. Winners will be determined by audience applause as assessed by the pet expo staff.

If you are bringing your pet, it must be current on all shots or you should plan to have your pet’s immunizations updated at the event. The immunization requirement applies to dogs, cats and ferrets. A rabies tag is acceptable as proof of immunization, as are blood titer results for those pet owners who don’t immunize annually. Dogs must be in a carrier or on a fixed lead or a locked retractable lead, no longer than 6 feet, at all times. No female pets in heat are allowed. You’ll be required to sign a pet waiver at the entrance.

Ten Tips for Attending the Phoenix Pet Expo

  1. Only bring your pet along if it is well-behaved, non-aggressive and acts calmly in crowded and confusing situations. There are other animals, obviously, but there are small children, wheelchairs and lots of people at the event.
  2. The walk from the car to the indoor WestWorld event includes pavement in the parking lot that can be very hot on a hot day in April. Be prepared to protect your dog's paws.
  3. Bring some cash. There are many opportunities for donations here, and even some of the vendors request small donations in exchange for samples.
  1. The Phoenix Pet Expo program includes all the vendor names and locations, as well as the full schedule of seminars, demonstrations and activities at the expo. It's a very handy document!
  2. If you are interested in adopting a pet, this is a great place to do it, because you have so many rescue organizations in one place.
  3. At an event like this you can really see the personality of the rescue dog that interests you, since there is a lot of noise and many distractions.
  4. There is an outdoor pet potty area at the event.
  1. There was plenty of water for the dogs in attendance.
  2. Dogs will be dogs, and there was a crew of people assigned to clean up the accidents. Poop bags are donated. I was glad that I carried poop bags with me, though, because when my dog decided it was time, I was nowhere near the potty area.
  3. Pace yourself — it's a long day if you bring your dog with you! Make sure you take breaks and let the dog rest if you'll be staying for many hours.

I attended the 2010 Phoenix Pet Expo. This was the inaugural event. You can get a great idea of what it is like to attend by viewing the Phoenix Pet Expo Photo gallery.

  1. Only bring your pet along if it is well-behaved, non-aggressive and acts calmly in crowded and confusing situations. There are other animals, obviously, but there are small children, wheelchairs and lots of people at the event. Your pet must be on a leash at all times. Your pet must be current on all shots. You'll have to sign a certification to this effect before entering the event.
  2. People who bring their family pet may not use the escalator. At University of Phoenix Stadium that means that you take the long walk down the ramp (and up, upon departure).

  1. There was a very small and un-grasslike area for dogs to relieve themselves on the Expo floor. Hopefully in the future they will have a larger area, or maybe they can get one of the artificial turf vendors to provide one!
  2. There was plenty of water for the dogs in attendance.
  3. Dogs will be dogs, and there was a crew of people assigned to clean up the accidents. I was glad that I carried poop bags with me, though, because when my dog decided it was time, I was nowhere near the potty area and no cleanup person was in sight.
