Family Pet Shows, formerly known as The Horse and Pet Expo, is run by husband and wife team Karen and Dennis Garetano and their son Joe Garetano.

After two years of successfully hosting the first horse expo, they expanded the show to include other pets and changed the name to Horse and Pet Expo and began adding new locations. Throughout the years and additional shows, Family Pet Shows has grown in size and popularity in each location.

Hogan's Hope returns to Sun Rose!

The award-winning author, Connie Bombaci, will be signing her book, Hogan's Hope. Personalized copies make wonderful gifts, and shoppers can get a very special present as well as an early start on holiday shopping.

Hogan's Hope is the inspirational story of a deaf dog who escaped death during the time when the prevalent belief was that deaf dogs needed to be destroyed. It is the tale of a legendary deaf canine champion who endured severe abuse and prevailed as he turned upside down the myths of deaf dogs being dumb, difficult to train, and harmful. Hogan learned over seventy words in American Sign Language, engaged in normal puppy activities, and provided the hope of life, not death for deaf dogs worldwide. Through perseverance and enduring hope, Hogan's courage provided inspiration to anyone, human or pet, that success and genuine love are truly possible. This heroic deaf dog continues to reveal that by choosing hope, anyone's dreams can come true, and the world can be filled with steadfast faith, pure joy, and unconditional love. It's a story like none other.

Profits from the sales of the book, Hogan's Hope, will be donated to non-profit animal organizations such as the OCNJ Humane Society and deployed service personnel.
