RESCUE PET ADOPTION
Looking to add a fury friend to the family?
Come to the Expo and see all the available adoptable pets!
INTRODUCE YOUR RESCUE ORGANIZATION TO THOUSANDS OF FAMILIES DIRECTLY IN PERSON!
Each November, the Novi Pet Expo Presented by Pet Supplies Plus welcomes dozens of breed-specific rescue organizations and general rescue groups, plus many shelters and Humane Societies from across southern Michigan. Our mission is simple--to host a central location and opportunity for as many potential adoptive families as possible to meet as many potential adoptable pets as possible—just before the beginning of the holiday season and colder weather. This allows adoptive families to happily snuggle in with new friends for the winter, while shelters free up valuable space and resources to serve more displaced animals when most needed, during the coldest months of the year. “Rescued is our favorite breed!”
RESCUE ORGANIZATIONS MUST
Bring adoptable pets to the event in
order to apply for a rescue space.
If you are not bringing adoptable pets you must
apply as a For-Profit, Non-Profit (501c3) or a Rescue (not bringing adoptable pets).
Please check out these applications by clicking the button below.

The Novi Pet Expo presented by Pet Supplies Plus has created a program to facilitate in the fundraising initiative of Rescue Organizations. Every Rescue that signs up for a booth at the Novi Pet Expo presented by Pet Supplies Plus will be given a block of tickets that they can sell. All of the money collected from these tickets goes to the organization, with the exception of the booth fee. Patrons who purchase your fundraiser ticket(s), MUST enter at the main entrance in the front of the expo. Volunteers using the one day ticket may enter in the back if they are volunteering in your booth space.
(These tickets cannot be sold on property during the event weekend)
Rescue organizations involved with the event will receive an allocated amount of Volunteer wristbands for their volunteers working within their booth space. Each wristband is admission for your volunteers to enter into the back of the expo hall around the back of the building on each day that they are working in your booth. The wristbands are good for all 3 days.
If you require more volunteer wristbands for your volunteers, they may be purchased for $12 until Monday, December 9th, 2024.
NO WRISTBANDS WILL BE AVAILABLE AFTER THIS DATE.
A wristband is required for entry, if you do not have a wristband you must enter through the front with the patrons and be charged at the box office.
