IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR SICK PATIENTS
If your pet is sick or in need of immediate medical care, please DO NOT risk endangering other healthy animals by bringing them to the All Animal Expo.
Instead, we encourage you to bring your sick pet to your veterinarian as soon as possible.
Please bring a disposable copy of your permit for animals that require a USDA, DNR, Furbearer’s, or Endangered & Threatened Species Permit for legal ownership.
Additional Important Information
Chicago has passed an ordinance that forbids pet shops in the city from buying puppies from “puppy mills”. They are only allowed to get their animals from shelters and rescues.
Did you know that PETA supports the automatic killing of “pit bulls” whenever they arrive at an animal shelter? Ingrid Newkirk, their president, wrote a op-ed piece for the SFGate. You can read the article here.
