Amazing Pet Expos Celebrates Their 96th Pet Expo

With 96 Pet Expos under their belt, Amazing Pet Expos looks towards the future for new cities and bigger and better plans.


St. Louis, MO -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/08/2014 -- After their final event of 2014, Amazing Pet Expos was able to celebrate their 96th consecutive show.

"Ninety-six consecutive shows is such a big accomplishment for us!" says Sheila Rilenge, President of Amazing Expos, "We started as such a small company in 2009, with just an idea to help pet-owners and pet-related businesses. We never thought we'd get so far."

The first pet expo took place in Saint Louis, the company's home base, where the owners realized that there were too many pet owners who didn't have the resources they needed in order to take care of their pet. "We would find out that someone fell into hard times and gave their pet up to a local shelter, when they could have gone to a local Pet Food Bank – which exists in most cities – so that they could keep their pet and still take care of them," says Rilenge, "From there, we realized that there needed to be a place where information like this could be distributed."

Since then, the Pet Expos have expanded to each corner of the United States – from New York to Seattle, from Tampa Bay to Long Beach to Austin, TX. This year, there were 37 Pet Expos across the country from January until December of 2014.

"We have so many plans for expansion in the upcoming year, including a couple of new locations!" says Rilenge. "We hope to see many more attendees and exhibitors in 2015!"
