2009 Northwest Pet & Companion Fair in Portland, Oregon

For those in Portland, Oregon, the Pet Expo (aka Northwest Pet & Companion Fair) is this weekend. It takes place at the Expo Center on Saturday and Sunday. The hours on Saturday are 9:30-6, and on Sunday 10-5. I went to this expo last year and three years ago, and it was great. I even brought my cat, Tabby. It takes up one of the exhibition halls, and has booths and exhibits ranging from pet food to animal rescues to on-site adoptions to workshops. About half the exhibits are dog-related, and the rest are almost all general animal-related or adoptions. This year, there are two cat-specific booths with information. You can bring your leashed or otherwise contained animal with you, for the admission price of $1 per pet or one can of dog/cat food (to go to AniMeals on Wheels). The cost for humans is $8 ($5 students/seniors and free for children 5 and under).
