  • Eligible species include fish, amphibians, turtles, birds, cats, dogs, gerbils, guinea pigs, hamsters, mice, rats, and rabbits.
  • Pets will be exhibited in an appropriate box, cage, or bowl or on a leash. No wild animals will be allowed, and pets must be healthy at the time of the show.
  • Exhibitors will be evaluated with verbal questions from a judge on their pet's health, nutrition, grooming, behavior, and housing.
  • Pets can only be brought to the fairgrounds an hour before the show and must leave 15 minutes after.
  • Due to limited space, all animals will be held in their appropriate cage, box, or bowl or must remain on a leash at the show location.
