The mission of the Great Indy Pet Expo is to promote the health and well-being of Indy’s companion animals; to educate Indy’s pet owners on the importance of spaying, neutering, and regular veterinary care; and to encourage pet ownership as a lifetime commitment.

Who Should Attend the Great Indy Pet Expo?

The Great Indy Pet Expo welcomes anyone who loves animals and pets. Whether you’re a current pet owner or just thinking about bringing a companion animal into your home, the Great Indy Pet Expo is for you. It’s a great event for family entertainment, and with the largest pet-related trade show in the state, it’s a must for your holiday shopping list!

May I Bring My Pet?

​Well-behaved, spayed or neutered adult pets are welcome to attend the Great Indy Pet Expo. Please leave younger pets at home! They’re too often overwhelmed and uncomfortable. Puppies will be turned away at the door.

All pets are required to be accompanied by a Critter Release Form that you will be required to fill out at the gate. All pets in attendance must be current on shots. Any unruly or threatening pet will be asked to leave. Thanks in advance for your cooperation! You can save some time at the gate by filling out your critter release on our website.
