UPPER MARLBORO, Md. (May 4, 2015) – Four legged and furry friends get ready! Amazing Pet Expos arrives at the Show Place Arena in the D.C. area on May 16, for one day only. Fresh off their 100th expo, the Capitol Pet Expo features national spokesperson Shorty Rossi, of Pit Boss fame, who will interact with his fans and educate about Breed Specific Legislation and his work with Pit Bulls across the country.

“Guests are always amazed at what these pet expos have to offer. An Amazing Pet Expo is a great socialization tool for your pets,” says Rossi. “And seeing so many kinds of different pet types and breeds at one event is really something to see! People might decide to go to a pet expo to just have fun with their pet, but they end up leaving with new knowledge on how to be the best pet owner possible – and they can take what they learned into their community and make a difference for all animals.”

The Capitol Pet Expo is free to the public and opens on Saturday, May 16 from 10am to 6pm. The expo features opportunities for attendees to explore nearly 100 exhibitors, Lure Coursing by Swift Paws, education about exotic animals, a Petfinder.com mega-adoption area with more than 100 rescue pets available for adoption. Low-cost immunizations, discounted micro-chipping and free nail trims are also available for all the furry friends who need them. Attendees can learn about pet care, volunteerism, grooming, pet behavior & training, traveling with your pet, how you can make a difference, different types of pets/breeds, veterinarian FAQ, fun activities for you and your pet and much more.

This free, indoor and air-conditioned event attracts up to 10,000 attendees along with their furry, feathered and reptilian pals who are looking to enjoy a new and one-of-a-kind experience where all pets can enjoy a fun day out with their pet parent(s). All well-behaved pets are welcome, as long as they’re on a fixed lead (or in a carrier) and have proof of age-appropriate rabies vaccines.

“We’re so excited to join the DC-area pet community,” says Ethan Barnett, Vice President of Community Partnerships for Amazing Pet Expos. “A huge part of our initiative is to help people become better pet companions, and we look forward to meeting all the amazing pet parents in Washington D.C. and to making an impact in pets’ lives across the region. Whether you would like to shop, learn, play or adopt – you can do any one of those at the 2015 Capitol Pet Expo.”
