Welcome to our world!

The Greater Bangor Pet Expo, Oct 19-20, 2013.

Posted on Updated on

Welcome!

We are serious animal people – both my husband & I have nearly always lived with a menagerie of companion and farm animals ranging from our beloved dogs & cats, to pet mice, white rats, rabbits, chickens, cows, horses, pigs… you name it! 

Presently, in addition to our own three dogs (two of them rescues, the other a “free pup” found at a neighborhood store) we foster dogs coming out of high kill southern shelters – and have helped save the lives of more than a dozen wonderful dogs thatotherwise might have had no chance. 

Our role in those rescues is minor; we are in complete awe of the organizations that put their hearts and souls – and time, energy and money – into saving every creature they can.  We hope our Pet Expos will help raise awareness and desperately needed funds for those rescues, while also offering an avenue for pet-related businesses, organizations and responsible breeders to find new customers and friends.

The Greater Bangor Pet Expo supports:

  • rescues, shelters & activist organizations
  • boarding facilities & kennels, groomers & breeders
  • pet foods, pet supply stores, toys & accessories
  • veterinarians, veterinary supplies, and more! 

This show and others are produced by What a Great Event! (my events planning & management firm) dba The Maine Pet Expos – you can find both business names on Facebook.  We also hope you’ll join our  interactive Facebook group at:  https://www.facebook.com/groups/MainePetExpos/.

As with all What a Great Event! shows, the Greater Bangor Pet Expo will offer opportunities for non-profit organizations to fund-raise via volunteering and through other means.  You can find more info on this page, as well as on pages 13 & 15 of the attached Exhibitors Manual.

We’d love to talk to you about your possible role in helping to plan the Expo, sponsor/exhibit/advertise, or even present a workshop or other activity!

Sloppy dog kisses from Buddy, Millie & Rudi,

Linda Snyder

Linda Snyder, M.S., President, What a Great Event!
