Delgado Community College presents Fifth Annual Animal Expo

October 13, 2012
  • Location: Delgado's City Park Campus
  • Address: 615 City Park Avenue, New Orleans, LA
  • Times: 11:00am-3:00pm
  • Contact: Lee Gaffney
  • Phone: 504-671-5640
  • Email: lgaffn@dcc.edu

The Delgado Community College Office of Institutional Advancement is partnering with sponsors The Brown Foundation, Louisiana Veterinary Referral Center, VCA Animal Hospitals – Causeway/Airline, Greyhound Pets of America – LA and MS, South Paws Veterinary Surgical Specialists, Lakeview Veterinary Hospital and Jefferson Parish Animal Shelter, St. Tammany Humane Society and Southeast Veterinary Specialists to present the fifth annual Animal Expo on Saturday, Oct. 13, 11 am – 3 pm, at Delgado’s City Park Campus (615 City Park Avenue, New Orleans) to benefit Delgado’s Veterinary Technology program.

Admission is free and open to the public for this family-focused event. Friendly, well-behaved and leashed dogs that are up-to-date on all immunizations are also welcome. For the safety of all animals, dogs must remain on a leash the entire time, and please do not bring cats or exotic animals as guests.

One of the highlights of the Animal Expo will be the Delgado Doggie Day Spa, where you can purchase baths, “pawticures” and ear cleaning for your pooch, all expertly provided by Delgado Veterinary Technology students. Proceeds from the Doggie Day Spa will support Delgado’s Associate of Applied Science degree program in Veterinary Technology, the only two-year vet tech program in Louisiana that is fully accredited by the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA).

A favorite activity every year is the K9 Halloween costume contest at 2:30 pm, hosted by Anne Cutler from WGNO-TV’s “News with a Twist.” Enter your costumed canine for just $5, strut your stuff and compete to win great prizes! You can also have professional photos taken with your pet by Scott Stuntz and printed on the spot.

The crowd-pleasing Red Barn Farm Tour with farm animals and exhibits returns this year. Other Animal Expo offerings not to miss include:

  • meeting adoptable animals from regional rescue groups
  • meeting area veterinarians and dog trainers
  • shopping with a variety of animal-related vendors
  • enjoying food for two- and four-legged guests
  • music by the Delgado Jazz Ensemble.
