Telegraph to hold Pawsitively Pets Expo

The Telegraph invites you to celebrate all things with four legs, fins, wings and whiskers.

The Pawsitively Pets Expo will be held from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday, May 19, at Daniel Webster College in Nashua. Pets from all over New Hampshire are bringing their owners to the expo to visit with vendors and enjoy demonstrations, giveaways and prizes.

Don’t have a pet? The Humane Society for Greater Nashua will have pets available for adoption.

The Humane Society for Greater Nashua is a private, nonprofit organization dedicated to serving the animals and people of Greater Nashua since 1900. The society operates a full-service shelter in Nashua. The Humane Society for Greater Nashua receives no city, state or federal grants, no United Way funds and no funding from National Animal Welfare organizations. It relies on community-wide support, fundraising endeavors, bequeathments, general donations and in-kind gifts.

Visitors can support the Humane Society for Greater Nashua by making a donation at the expo and/or participating in the 50/50 raffle.

Ever wonder what your pet is thinking or trying to tell you? Let Karin O’Neill, of Animal Quest, communicate with your pet. Get a better understanding of your pet’s likes, dislikes and needs. Animal communication is helpful in discerning any illness, pain or trauma that an animal might be feeling or may have experienced.

It also can help to understand any undesirable behaviors and discover positive ways to resolve those behaviors.

Appointments will be scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis the day of the event. The cost is $20 for a 15-minute communication session. Communication appointments will take place from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Sign-ups begin at 9:45 a.m.

This year’s event is sponsored by Chasing Our Tails and the Animal Hospital of Nashua. Participating vendors include Amherst Country Club & Ponemah Green, Owens Corning, Rockingham Vet Hospital, Pawsitively Yummy, Canine Co., Rescom Exteriors, 2 Puggles At Home, Critters N Creatures, Cool Collars, Saltyclaws and Hollis Veterinarian Hospital. Food vendors include Gianni’s Pizza.

This is a pet-friendly event; all leashed and well-behaved pets are welcome. This is a free event, but donations to help support the Humane Society will be accepted.
