Adopt Love Adopt Local

On Saturday, April 11th at the Tucson Expo Center in Tucson I am pleased to be speaking at a wonderful event called Adopt Love Adopt Local.  The principal goal is to help 200 animals find loving homes.   Animal rescue groups and animal related vendors have joined together to make this one day event possible.  See “pets of all breeds, ages and backgrounds so that every attendee can find their match, while local vender booths will offer resources that can help them thrive as pet owners.” (Adoptloveadoptlocal website)

In addition, a variety of pet experts will be on hand with helpful hints on pet care, veterinary care and training.  I take the stage to speak about pets at 12:30 p.m.  and then answer questions at the  Ask the Expert booth at 1pm.

If you are in the area and looking for an addition to your family, please join us!  The event website is
