Animals will be available for adoption at the expo, and attendees are encouraged to bring their pets -- as long as they're on a leash.
For owners who like dressing up their dogs or cats, there will be a best dressed pet competition Saturday at noon. Katy Nelson, WTOP's Dr. Pawz, will be one of the judges, and the audience will vote for the top three winners.
