Novi Pet Expo at Suburban Collection Showplace

This family fun event, now in its 11th year, gives kids and parents the chance to interact with (and possibly adopt) dogs, cats and more Nov. 21-23, 2014

Cute, cuddly and totally adoptable: That captures the critters you'll meet at the 11th annual Novi Pet Expo, heading to Suburban Collection Showplace Nov. 21-23, 2014. This event brings tons of fun and for the whole family – pets included!

The Novi Pet Expo provides a unique and exciting experience for pet lovers across southeast Michigan. For three whole days, you can get up-close with adoptable animals – cats and dogs, as well as other creatures – and learn more about the responsibilities of pet ownership.

Perfect for the whole family, the expo includes exhibits focused n a variety of different animals. There's also a petting farm and pony rides with Green Acres of Highland Michigan, plus entertainment including the American Rare Breads Dog Show, popular Rock-N-Roll K-9's Performance Team, a show by John Lege (aka "That Guy with the Birds"), a cat show by TICA (The International Cat Association) and the Ultimate Air Dogs.

Your family's own well-behaved dog is also welcome to attend. Pets must be on a 6-foot-maximum leash (retractable leashes aren't permitted). You must bring proper supplies to clean up if your pet has an accident. Note that pet birds aren't allowed, due to health concerns for these creatures. Pets must be at least 6 months old and current on vaccinations.

This year's event will also feature Victoria Stilwell from the show It's Me Or The Dog on Animal Planet, as well as a number of other trainers.

  • Friday: noon-8 p.m.
