There is a yearly pet expo coming up that I would recommend to anyone who is near CT to check out. I've attended in the past and it was well worth my time.
It's The 16th Annual CT Pet Show & TICA Cat Show, which takes place in Hartford. It features The AKC Parade of Purebred Dogs, with over 150 purebred dog breeds, The (TICA) International Cat Association Cat Show, with over 100 breeds of exotic and domestic purebred cats, The Rarities Rare and Ancient Dog Breed Show, featuring rare & AKC registered breeds in a live dog show competition, plus over 125 vendors offering unique, one-of-a-kind pet products & services.
