Pawsitively Pets Expo a fun day for your dog and the whole family
Monday, May 17, 2010
Love your pet and animals in general? Then the 2nd Annual Pawsitively Pets Expo is an event that you don’t want to miss! Last year more than 500 people brought their animals to the Expo, held in Nashua, and the day was filled with demonstrations, a petting zoo and plenty of fun with your favorite four-legged friend.
The official press release is below but as someone who helps organize and volunteer at this event, I promise it is fun and perfect for the whole family. After all, how many events are there for you to take your pooch to?
NASHUA – The Telegraph is pairing up with the Humane Society for Greater Nashua to celebrate all things with four legs, fins, wings and whiskers at the 2nd Annual Pawsitively Pets Expo on Saturday, May 22, from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. at Daniel Webster College in Nashua. Daniel Webster College is conveniently located off Pine Hill Road, adjacent to the Nashua Municipal Airport.
