The award-winning book, Hogan's Hope, will be returning to the 2018 Family Pet Expo in Hartford.

Hogan was rescued by the CHS where we were able to adopt this extraordinary pup who brought great hope and inspiration to lives of so many. We want his legacy to continue."

"We are looking forward to continuing the Connecticut Pet show, with some improvements and additional shows within our show! First and foremost we have moved the show to a pet-friendly facility so now pet parents can bring their well-behaved leashed pets with them,” said Dennis Garetano of Family Pet Shows. Garetano went on to say, “We have pets attend all our other shows in Pennsylvania and New York – everything from dogs, cats, pot-bellied pigs, miniature horses, ferrets – so we are very happy to make the CT show pet-friendly now!" The show will stay in Hartford and has been moved to the XL Center in 2017, making the show pet-friendly and at a larger facility to offer more to Connecticut pet lovers. “The Pet Show has always been the premier event for Connecticut pet lovers. As our business expands we realized the Connecticut Pet Show would be best produced by Family Pet Shows, as they are the experts producing stellar pet events. We feel the Garetano’s are positioned to take the Connecticut Pet Show to the next level,” stated Wesley Jenks, Vice President of Jenks Productions.
Family Pet Shows has been producing consumer pet shows for more than 20 years and currently have 3 shows in Pennsylvania (Greater Philadelphia Pet Expo in Oaks PA, Lehigh Valley Pet Expo in Allentown, PA and the Morgantown Pet Expo in PA) , 2 shows on Long Island, (Long Island Pet Expo in the Park, every September in Copiague, NY and their larger show Long Island Pet Expo, every March at Suffolk Community College in Brentwood, NY).
