Porter County Animal Shelter Seeks Vendors for 17th Annual Be Kind to Animals Pet Expo

The Porter County Animal Shelter is seeking vendors for their 17th Annual Be Kind To Animals Pet Care Expo. The event will be held from 10:00AM to 4:00PM on Saturday, April 25th at the Porter County Expo Center.
“Be Kind To Animals is one of the most well attended animal care events in northwest Indiana,” said Shelter Director Jon Thomas. “We moved to a much larger building last year, and had our best attendance ever, so it is an excellent opportunity for veterinarians, pet care businesses, rescues and non-profits to reach a large audience of pet-owning, pet-friendly consumers.”
The number of vendors at the event continues to grow, so the Shelter has reserved a second, connected building to allow for an expansion of vendor space. Because the Porter County Expo Center are experts at arranging these types of events, they have agreed to help the Shelter improve vendor service. Booth reservations and payments must be made directly through the Porter County Expo Center.
An 8′ X 10′ space, including one table and one chair, is available at $25 for rescues and non-profits, or $45.00 for veterinarians and businesses. Extra tables and chairs are available for $8 and $1.50 each, respectively.
To reserve your booth, please call Debbie at the Porter County Expo Center at (219) 464-0133 between 8:30 AM to 3:00 PM, Monday thru Friday.
Vendors at the 2014 Be Kind To Animals Expo were mailed a letter and registration form on Wednesday, January 14th. It is important that they return the reservation form with payment as soon as possible to guarantee a space at this year’s event.
The Shelter is also asking vendors to consider donating a gift basket or gift certificate to be part of a raffle to raise funds for the Shelter. If you want to participate in the raffle, please bring your donation on the day of the event.
