Bertino-Tarrant hosting annual Pet Expo
5/10/2018, 8:42 a.m.
State Senator Jennifer Bertino-Tarrant (Shorewood) will once again host her annual free Pet Expo this year.
The event will take place from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, May 12 at Clow Stephens Dog Park (16676 S. Lily Cache Rd, Plainfield).
The Pet Expo provides area residents a free and fun educational event for animal lovers and families.
“As a dog owner, I understand firsthand our pets become part of our families,” Bertino-Tarrant said. “I look forward to hosting this event with the Plainfield Park District and to join families and their pets from our community.”
Anyone planning to attend the pet expo is encouraged to bring their pets. There will be a peanut butter licking contest for all interested dogs as well as nail trimming, K-9 officer demonstrations, and dog training demonstrations and tips will be available. Photos of pet owners and animals can also be taken at the event.
Bertino-Tarrant is excited to support the Will County Humane Society with a bake sale and supply drive as well. The Humane Society is in constant need of paper towels, 50-gallon trash bags, Purina Cat and Dog Food (canned and dry), generic cat litter and any-sized KONG pet toys.
