Pets galore at World of Dogs and Cats and Pet Expo in Midrand

The World of Dogs and Cats and Pet Expo will be back at the Midrand Gallagher Convention Centre from 14 until 16 July and promises fun-filled days for animal lovers.

The three-day pet expo and a festival of entertainment will offer fun activities from dancing dogs to prancing ponies. Children will get to meet celebrity pets and visitors will discover what breeds make the best pets for their family. With special feature areas for cats, dogs, horses, reptiles and exotic pets, an opportunity will be offered to interact with a huge range of pet breeds, buy treats and care products for pets.

There will also be dog agility challenges and dog handling contests, view and learn more about koi fish and aquatic life, birds and reptiles, watch equine displays, and learn how to care for your pets. Those who are hoping to adopt an animal will get the opportunity to engage with animal welfare organisations.
