Pet Expo

Pet Expo 2019

The Pet Expo was held at the Museum of Appalachia on Saturday, July 27, 2019 from 9:00 am – 3:00 pm.

Pet Expo offers something for everyone, beginning with a breakfast buffet with keynote speakers 9:00 am -11:00 am. At 11:00 there will be rescues and shelters with adoptable pets, vendors, activities, demonstrations, displays, a Silent Auction and a Kid’s Corner! Breakfast tickets are available @$15 on our website. Food will also be available throughout the event, so you can come for an hour or stay for the day!

Partnering with local Rescues and animal welfare agencies, Anderson County Animal Rescue Foundation (ACAF) helps coordinate adoption events, accommodates adoptable animals, and advances our collective outreach through educational programs and events. All funds raised will be used by AC AF to achieve its mission of providing a safe environment for all animals, and building a state of the art Education and Adoption Center.
