Moment of Silence

For the second time in our history, The Ottawa Pet Expo lands on Remembrance Day, November 11. We wish to honour all the Animals who have sacrificed for Freedom alongside our Brave Soldiers all over the globe. We will ask for a moment of silence (or as best as your animal(s) can do).

21 Pup Salute

At 11:05am we will hold a 21 Pup Salute – In honour of all our veteran service animals. 21 of Ottawa’s Loudest Barkers, assembling for a bark to shake the rafters of Hall 4 honoring all the four-legged victims of war – that sadly can no longer bark for themselves. *em> PLEASE NOTE: This WILL be a loud event – not recommended for those uncomfortable with loud noises.
