The annual family-friendly event features all creatures, great and small, from four legged to flying, feathered and scaled of all sizes, shapes and colors, will all be on display.
Entering our 29th year, America’s Family Pet Expo is THE destination for pet lovers, offering education on responsible pet care, entertainment and pet adoptions. We couldn’t be prouder of the pet loving community we have in Southern California, making America’s Family Pet Expo the ultimate destination for all pet lovers,” said Jacinthe Moreau, President of the World Pet Association, producer of the America’s Family Pet Expo. “As we have grown over the years, the show has progressed to include the best in pet ownership and care. America’s Family Pet Expo offers animal adoptions, a variety of educational presentations, family fun pet entertainment, and exhibitors offering show specials and while showcasing the latest and greatest in pet products.”
This year, my daughter and I had the opportunity to bring a little snippet of the America’s Family Pet Expo to some of our local Brownie (Girl Scout) Troop. With the help of our friends from America’s Pet Expo and The International Cat Association to teach these future cat owners the essentials in cat care and ownership. These little ladies were very excited to earn their responsible cat ownership badges.
These girls had the opportunity to speak with Sharon Kalani, a judge from The International Cat Association who introduced them to several of her feline friends and their families. The girls learned about different breeds, and that taking them to regular visits to the veterinarian keep them healthy. They also learned that there are many animals looking for their forever home, along with many other animals including dogs, guinea pigs and more that will be available for adoption at the Family Pet Expo.
New to America’s Family Pet Expo for 2018 is the Sea Lion Splash Show; a unique mobile aquatic experience combining both marine fun and environmental education. Sea Lion Splash Show features rescued sea lions from both California and South America. Ready to thrill and excite an audience of all ages, the sea lions balance balls, shoot hoops, dance, shake their flippers, and even do a handstand or two.
Returning to the 2018 America’s Family Pet Expo will be The Catit Playground. This popular interactive activity brings a close-up view for guests to watch charming adoptable cats and kittens to see how they interact with different toys and people. This is a great atmosphere for guests to learn all about cats and to gain a little insight into “Catitude.”
America’s Family Pet Expo will include on-site cooking demonstrations. Hosted by JustFoodForDogs, the “Find Out What’s Cooking” talks will feature lessons on how to create homemade meals to promote optimal health, longevity and well-being for dogs.
Returning favorites to America’s Family Pet Expo include Repticon, reptile show and sale, offering hundreds of common and rare species of reptiles such as lizards, snakes, and spiders. Plus, the ever-popular Splash Dogs and The Great American Petting Zoo, family fun the whole family will enjoy.

The aquariums will be on display throughout America’s Family Pet Expo and are judged according to age group and two categories – Natural and Creative. Also, for the aquatic enthusiast is the Aquascaping Contest, where contestants will compete to make the most beautiful, and natural underwater environment in a small aquarium.
