Bring your fam — furry friends included — to the 22nd Annual Pet Expo to benefit Henrico Humane Society. The event returns to the Richmond Raceway on Saturday, Feb. 25 from 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

The schedule is full of activities, including silent auctions, dog adoptions, demos, and contests. Younger attendees can get their faces painted or adopt a stuffed animal in the Kids Area.

Proceeds from the event benefit HHS. Buy tickets in advance for $8 or get them for $10 at the door. Kids ages 6-12 are $5. Pro tip: Pets are free, but should be at least four months old, current on vaccinations, and be leashed or in a carrier.
