Pet Events in January in the USA

December 31, 2014
Comments Off

The start of a new year is here and with that comes plenty of fun, pet-friendly, or pet loving events that you and your family can go to. Some of them allow pets and some don’t but all of them are sure to have great educational information regarding health and well-being, community outreach, and raising awareness of some of the issues that animal welfare groups are trying to change. Who knows, you may end up with a new parrot, cat, or being a volunteer at your local humane shelter after coming home from an event.

Check out the events listed and if you’re not near any of these, check with your local humane society and newspaper for local pet events.

With so many pet events across the country, this list can’t be quite comprehensive – at least not without your help. Is your pet event, or one in your area, missing from our list? Please help us update this list to keep it current by leaving the information in a comment below!
