The Bay Area Pet Fair, hosted by Pet Food Express, is the largest pet adoption event in California! This year’s Pet Fair will be September 15 & 16 at the Alameda County Fairgrounds. Last year's fair featured more than 75 rescues and shelters, and welcomed over 120,000 attendees, more than 1,600 of whom adopted a new pet. We expect 2018 to be bigger and better than ever! 

The Bay Area Pet Fair is fun for everyone in the family! Admission and parking are free, pets on leash are welcome and encouraged, and there will be live shows and demos, activities for people and pets, a variety of food and drink options, lots of giveaways and prizes, and tons of samples and goodies to take home.

Since Pet Food Express began hosting the Bay Area Pet Fair in 2011, 6,440 pets have been adopted, more than a pet a minute during fair hours! And for each animal adopted at the fair, Pet Food Express donates an additional $50 to the group, totaling more than $364,000 in the last 7 years! Mike Murray, Pet Food Express’ Director of Community Outreach, calls the Pet Fair an “opportunity to educate people about the importance of rescue and adoption, find hundreds of homeless pets forever homes, and provide a fun weekend of activities for the whole family.”

Mark your calendars and save the date to join us in sunny Pleasanton this September!

The Bay Area Pet Fair is located at the Alameda County Fairgrounds - 4501 Pleasanton Ave, Pleasanton, CA 94566.
