Looking for something fun to do Valentine's weekend? Grab your favorite four-legged friends and head to The San Diego Pet Expo™ happening on February 13 and 14 at the Del Mar Fairgrounds.

This is a free indoor event featuring fabulous prize giveaways, dozens of rescue groups with adorable adoptables, live entertainment, obedience and agility demonstrations, and more!

Visit with the many local and nationally-recognized vets, groomers, trainers, retailers and organizations that will be onsite.

Dress your pup in their best costume for the very popular Pet Costume Contest, 5 p.m. on Saturday and 3:30 p.m. on Sunday.

There are a few rules for bringing pets:

• Your pet must be current on all age-appropriate shots or you should plan to have your pet’s immunizations updated at the event; low-cost vaccinations and microchipping are offered on-site.

• Dogs must be on leash, no longer than 6 feet, at all times.

• No female pets in heat can attend.

• You’ll be required to sign a pet waiver at the entrance, but you can avoid waiting in line by visiting the San Diego Pet Expo website to fill out your pet waiver form in advance.
