Charitable Pet Adoption and Holiday Pet Photo Event

Charitable Pet Adoption and Holiday Pet Photo Event

Feb 26, 2017

We had such a great turnout at the 2017 San Diego Pet Expo last weekend. Despite the bit of rain, pets and their people from all over came to see what the exhibitors had to offer this year.

There are so many benefits to having a booth at a pet-friendly expo like this. Here’s my top 5 favorite things about being an exhibitor:

  1. Meeting tons of pets and their people
  2. Having an excuse to offer amazing discounts to potential customers
  3. Networking with other pet-friendly business owners
  4. Showing off my goods and services in person
  5. Watching the hilarious contests and amazing acts of agility

This year, I held a contest for one lucky pet parent to win a FREE Mini Photo Session. I also gave $50 OFF their session fee to anyone who booked a Complimentary Consultation. And many others signed up for the VIPP Club (Very Important Pet Parents Club) to receive exclusive access to limited-time promotions, discounts, product releases, special events, and more! And I gave away free chapstick…because who doesn’t love chapstick, right?

If you weren’t able to come take advantage of all the amazing offers and free goodies, don’t worry. You can still sign up for the Very Important Pet Parent (VIPP) Club by clicking the link below. you’ll get access to all the discounts, and know where I’ll be around town so that you can score a free chapstick as well. Then be sure to visit us at next year’s Pet Expo. See you around!
