With pet ownership rates increasing nationwide – 69% of households in Australia currently owning pets – the appetite for an event dedicated to positive pet ownership, whether they be furry, slimy or scaly, is strong. That’s why following its success in Sydney, Australia’s first national pet show is heading to Melbourne.

Managing Director, Cameron Just, says, “Following the success of our inaugural show, we are thrilled to once again host our event, this time in Melbourne. We’ve already had an overwhelming response from local businesses excited to be involved in the show as exhibitors and from residents that are eager to attend as guests.”

“The Pet Show is committed to providing an educational experience that celebrates the most loving family members in our lives. We’re looking forward to bringing the best that the industry has to offer to the state giving

The Pet Show will bring together a range of experts including local Victorians Dr Kate Mornement and Erin Funnel, Queen of Ants as well as interstate talent – Dr Katrina Warren, Dr Kate Adams, Ben Dessen, Dr Audrey and Dr Alison Shen. There will also be a large range of exhibitors.

In addition to these expert presentations and retail opportunities, attendees will have the chance to be entertained with stage shows and activations, interact with pets and breeders and participate in photo opportunities.

Tickets are currently available online with part proceeds from every sale donated to the Victorian RSPCA. Grab them here.
