A tail wagging good time! The 2012 Lowcountry Paws and Claws Pet Expo is an event not to be missed
Grab Rover ó and Fluffy, too! Itís time to head out for a day of fun with the whole family.
Pets and their owners are invited to join The Post and Courier and Lowcountry Paws for a Saturday full of entertainment, exhibits, education and more at Charlestonís premier pet festival, the Lowcountry Paws and Claws Pet Expo on Sept. 15 at the Exhibit Hall building at the Exchange Park in Ladson.
The fourth annual event will take place from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and welcomes families and their furry, feathered and scaly kids to meet with vendors, rescue groups and shelters from around the Lowcountry.
More than 5,000 people attended the event last year, bringing with them dogs, cats, guinea pigs, hamsters, snakes, birds, and even a squirrel.
Looking for a new friend? Adorable and adoptable pets will be waiting! But the fun doesnít stop there. Pet races, a costume contest, K-9 demonstrations and a mixed-breed dog show are just a few of the many activities you can take part in.
Pet Helpers also will be on site hosting a vaccination clinic. Discounted rabies shots and microchips will be available for all pets.
Pets are welcome on 4-foot non-retractable leashes, and pet owners are reminded to clean up after their animals.
