The Alliance of Wisconsin Animal Rehoming Efforts will be celebrating its 20th exposition on Saturday, February 1, 2025 at the Wisconsin Exposition Center at State Fair Park. Our charitable expo welcomes 1,000s of visitors annually, to experience 143,000 square feet of pet loving shopping and services, entertainment, educational experiences, and some of Wisconsin’s cutest adoptables.  This is the largest fundraising event for animals produced in southeast Wisconsin.  Proceeds will benefit Wisconsin’s homeless pet population.

  • Rescues must show a relationship with a local humane society whereby you are actively pulling animals from the facility.   Pet Expo MKE’s producer is the Alliance of Wisconsin Animal Rehoming Efforts (AWARE).  Because of AWARE’s Mission, it is important that exhibiting rescues and shelters directly support homeless companion animals in Wisconsin.  Therefore, for exhibitor reference purposes, we require the names and contact information of two Wisconsin shelters from which the rescue pulls and rehomes animals.  At application time, information can be sent to [email protected].  More information about AWARE can be found at www.awarewisconsin.com.
