Attend the largest one day animal adoption event and pet expo at the Bradenton Area Convention Center on August 3rd from 11 am – 4 pm. Whether you are looking to adopt or not, you can still find amazing products and services for the pet you have.

With more than 50 vendors, a search and rescue demonstration, FELD’s Monster Truck, Monster Mutt and over $20,000 in raffles and auction items, this event has something for everyone and is fun for the whole family. Manatee County Animal Services along with multiple area rescues and other local shelters will be there with animals up for adoption.



Adoption fees are determined by the organization but most fees are under $100 with the animals being up to date on vaccinations, spayed or neutered and chipped. The event is free to attend with free parking and it is inside in the AC. Leashed pets are welcome and private meet and greet rooms are available should you want to introduce your pet to a new potential four legged family member. (no retractable leashes please).

Every adopted pet will be able to get their first family photo done by FotoFinity. The first 500 people will receive a complimentary goodie bag. For more info visit or on Facebook at or call 941-713-3105.

The proceeds from the event will benefit Friends of Manatee County Animal Services (FoMCAS). Friends of Manatee County Animal Services is the 501c3 nonprofit that serves as a fundraising arm whose mission it is to work hand in hand with Manatee County Animal Services to enrich the lives of the shelter animals by raising funds to provide additional resources, medical care and heartworm treatment.
