The Great Lakes Pet Expo has been labeled Milwaukee’s Premier Pet Lovers Event by local media and is Wisconsin’s only charitable event for pet lovers of this magnitude. Proceeds from this event go back into the community to help animals in need.
The proceeds from this Exposition benefit area non-profit organizations. More than $20,000 has been given to area rescues and shelters over the past three years. This would not be possible without the support of our sponsors.
Do you know of a child or young adult that has made a difference
