COLLINSVILLE — The All About Pets Expo is set for 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, June 27, at Gateway Center, 1 Gateway Drive.
The free public event will feature pet adoptions, merchandise, contests, a K9 show and more. Friendly leashed and vetted pets are welcome. Owners must bring proof of vaccines.
The summer months are the worst for pet abandonment and the best for pet adoptions. This event is taking advantage of the season with many rescues and shelters on hand with puppies, adults, kittens and cats for adoption of nearly every breed, big and small. Local vendors will offer homemade pet treats, collars, leashes, clothing, food, pet photography and more.
The Cahokia Police Department’s K9 unit will do a show at 2 p.m. Police vehicles also will be on hand.
