We are currently seeking vendors for October’s Pet Expo/ Animal Care Summit

The committee has decided to provide 10 free vendor opportunities for NEPA Animal Welfare Collaborative members who are 501(c)(3) organizations. Vendor opportunities for AWC members will be on a first come, first serve basis. Beyond the 10 free placements, AWC members will still be given priority on a paid basis ($45 with a donated raffle item; $60 with no raffle item). If you would like to be a vendor at the event, please email with an explanation of what you would present to the public as a vendor.
