Admission is $6 for adults; children under 12 and dogs are admitted for free. All proceeds go towards Domesti-PUPS and their mission of increasing the quality of life for people in need of service dogs.

Here’s a note from the event Web site:

Southeast Nebraska’s premier dog lover’s event is back for another year of dog-friendly, family-oriented fun. With entertainment, games, demonstrations, and, of course, plenty of shopping, the expo attracts thousands of dog lovers of all ages and interests. There will be a variety of vendors including manufacturers, veterinarians, boarding and grooming facilities, rescue groups, retailers and more. Whether you’re looking for the tried and true, the off-the-wall, or anything in between, you’ll find it at the I Love My Dog Expo!

All proceeds from this event benefit Domesti-PUPS, a service organization that provides assistance dogs for persons with disabilities, pet therapy programs, classroom dogs and educational programs. Help us help others while attending this event with your furry friend.

It’s our hope that this event will help the general public better understand and appreciate the many ways that dogs enrich our lives.
