Wonder Pet Expo Houston comes to the Legends Sports Complex in the Woodlands Sept.1. The interactive, fun-for-the entire family event is free, and pet lovers will find a shopping extravaganza for their furried, finned and feathered friends.
Vendors include Miniature Schnauzer Rescue of Houston, Pet Floors of Houston, Barker Street Gourmet Bakery & Boutique, Doors 4 Pets and People, Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, Houston Area Doberman Rescue and Green Mountain Energy, to name a few. Watch Paw it Forward Training LLC. in action, while learning to train your pets. Or, you may just find your next four-legged family member in the Wonder Paws Rescue Arena.
This is the first time the event will be in Houston. Wonder Pet Expo was held in Phoenix last year and intends to hold shows annually in Texas and Arizona. The event is indoors, air-conditioned, and parking is free.
In light of the recent Spindletop Refuge raid that happened just north of the Woodlands, Wonder Pet Expo will be accepting donations to aid the rescues that are pulling together to help rehabilitate and save the dogs seized. Attendees are encouraged to bring leashes, collars, beds, towels, food bowls, dog food, ect. Anything will help; all items will be donated and distributed evenly to rescues participating in Wonder Pet Expo.
Sponsors include, Wonder Wetter, Global Pet Industry, Pet Vaccination Services, DogPoopBags.com, Texas Dogs & Cats, DogTipper.com, CatTipper.com, Urban Paws Magazine, Paw It Forward Training LLC. and Modern Dog Magazine.
Attendees are allowed to bring their pets on a fixed lead with proof of age-appropriate vaccinations, but discounted vaccinations and micro-chipping will be available to your on site. Pet experts will also share tips on obedience training, CPR, and bite prevention. Award-winning Petblogger Preston Speaks will speak about the growing online pet communities. Renowned publisher and speaker DogTipper.Com will sign her new book, “Barkonomics: Tips for Frugal Fidos,” and debut her highly anticipated children’s coloring book.
Children will have a blast with the Bonzi and Pinky “Race to Educate” Show in the Wonder Paws RaceWay. Bonzi races to create awareness against animal abuse, and Pinky races to create awareness against puppy mills. Kids will race with the dogs in cars.
Bonzi and Pinky won’t be the only ones racing at the show: Dachshund Rescue of Houston will be hosting Derby Doxie Races. Sign up on the website www.wonderpetexpohouston.com. Dachshunds may be registered at the pet expo as well. The proceeds will benefit the Dachshund Rescue of Houston.

After a little TLC, make sure to enter him or her into the “Most Pawsome Pet” Pageant.
