The Independent Cat Society was founded in 1977 and a not for profit, no-kill cat shelter. Our mission is to promote the welfare of all animals, especially cats, by reducing pet overpopulation, educating the public, preventing cruelties to animals, promoting responsible pet ownership, and working for more humane legislation.
The Porter County Animal Shelter is seeking vendors for its 16th Annual Be Kind To Animals Pet Care Expo. The event will be held from 10:00AM to 4:00PM on Saturday, April 26th at the Porter County Expo Center.
"Be Kind To Animals is one of the most well attended animal care events in northwest Indiana," said Shelter Director Jon Thomas. "Last year's event was packed all day long, so it is an excellent opportunity for veterinarians, pet care businesses, rescues and non-profits to reach a large audience of pet-owning, pet-friendly consumers."
The number of vendors at the event continues to grow, so the Shelter has made some changes this year to serve the vendors better. A second, connected building has been reserved to allow for an expansion of vendor space. Because the Porter County Expo Center are experts at arranging these types of events, they have agreed to help the Shelter improve vendor service. Beginning this year, booth reservations and payments must be made directly through the Porter County Expo Center.
An 8' X 10' space, including one table and one chair, is available at $25 for rescues and non-profits, or $45.00 for veterinarians and businesses. Extra tables and chairs are available for an additional fee.
The Shelter is also asking vendors to consider donating a gift basket or gift certificate to be part of a raffle to raise funds for the Shelter. If you want to participate in the raffle, please bring your donation on the day of the event.
