Novi Pet Expo Features-
- Luigi “Shorty” Rossi, speaker. Shorty from Animal Planet’s “Pit Boss”. Shorty’s Rescue is on a mission to prevent cruelty to Pit Bulls through education and activism. They do not have a shelter however they are on the streets every day saving the lives of many abused and starving Pit Bulls.

Other things you can do-
- Get your pet micro chipped on-site. How cool is THAT??? Ann Arbor’s Emergency Veterinary Hospital will be on-site. $25.00 charge, no appointment necessary. Go to booths 423 and 425
- CGC and AKC testing- Pay $20.00 and get your dog’s Good Canine Citizenship Certificate, assuming he passes of course. 🙂 No registration required. This program is designed to reward dogs who have good indoor and outdoor behavior. The CGC is the foundation of obedience, agility, tracking and other performance events. This program creates a bond between you and your dog and I highly recommend it. Plus, you get a certificate that proudly exclaims that your dog is a good canine!

There is a lot of work that goes into this event, by wonderful animal loving people. If you are are looking to adopt, or just want to take your kids to teach them how to take care of ALL animals, this is a great opportunity.
If you’re in the Detroit-area, here is a list of GREAT Pit Bull and all breed rescues. If you’re interested in adopting or even fostering a well-deserving Pit Bull, the boots on the ground rescuers can show you how wonderful these dogs are.
