Pet lovers in the Phoenix area should get their four-legged friends ready for the 2011 Phoenix Pet Expo, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, May 7, at University of Phoenix Stadium.

This free indoor event attracts thousands of pet lovers looking to enjoy a day out with their furry, feathered or reptilian pals. Last year, more than 12,000 people and their pets spent the day at the expo.

The expo will be packed with more then 275 local and nationally-recognized veterinarians, groomers, trainers, retailers and organizations primarily geared towards pet lovers.

Because the Phoenix Pet Expo is also designed to promote responsible pet ownership, the highlight of the day will be a mega-adoption event.

Pets are welcome to attend the event, provided that they are on a fixed lead and have proof of age-appropriate current vaccinations. There will be discounted vaccinations and low-cost microchipping available. Free admission, free parking. Visit
