The Animal Planet television network and the makers of Fresh Step cat litter invite Seattle area residents to attend Animal Planet Expo July 7-8 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Seattle Center Fisher Pavilion. The free event will feature events for the entire family, from live animal presentations to pet adoption events.

A new component of the expo this year is the Reach Out, Act and Respond display, which encourages people to help make the world a better place for animals. Event visitors can make a promise to do something positive for animals, from taking the family pet for a daily walk to supporting a favorite wildlife foundation. For every promise made, Animal Planet will donate $1 to its advocacy partners.

Another popular feature of the expo is the Discovery Kids’ Endurance Experience. This hands-on exhibit allows kids to compete in activities similar to those on the Discovery Kids Channel show “Endurance: High Sierras.” Children can participate in a timed “hanging” challenge and a large climbing wall.

Potential pet owners can visit the Pet Den, sponsored by the makers of Fresh Step cat litter. Working with local animal shelter MEOW Cat Rescue, Fresh Step will provide pet adoption opportunities and information on adopting cats and dogs. As part of the expo, the makers of Fresh Step and the ASPCA will donate $5,000 to MEOW Cat Rescue to support their animal adoption efforts.

Other expo activities and events include:

  • Animal House, where animal experts introduce visitors to exotic species from around the world
  • Bug House, where attendees can discover the world of bugs and butterflies
  • Heroes of Animal Planet, where visitors can create their own personalized pet tags
  • Pet Misters and Watering Holes, where feline and canine attendees can cool off on hot days
