HUNTINGTON STATION, NY – Family Pet Shows, owned by Garri Promotions of Huntington, NY, has acquired the Connecticut Pet Show from Jenks Productions. “We have been waiting to find the right person and company to take over our pet show, and we are very happy that the Garetano family at Family Pet Shows will continue with and certainly grow the Connecticut Pet Show,” said Dennis Jenks of Jenks Productions.

First and foremost we have moved the show to a pet-friendly facility so now pet parents can bring their well-behaved leashed pets with them.” Garetano continued: “We have pets attend all our other shows in Pennsylvania and New York – everything from dogs, cats, pot-bellied pigs, miniature horses, ferrets – so we are very happy to make the CT show pet-friendly now!” The show will stay in Hartford but move to the XL Center. “The Pet Show has always been the premier event for Connecticut pet lovers,” said Wesley Jenks, vice president of Jenks Productions. “As our business expands we realized the Connecticut Pet Show would be best produced by Family Pet Shows, as they are the experts producing stellar pet events. We feel the Garetanos are positioned to take the Connecticut Pet Show to the next level.” Family Pet Shows has been producing consumer pet shows for more than 20 years and currently has three shows in Pennsylvania (Greater Philadelphia Pet Expo in Oaks, Lehigh Valley Pet Expo in Allentown and the Morgantown Pet Expo) and two shows on Long Island (Long Island Pet Expo in the Park, every September in Copiague; and the Long Island Pet Expo, every March at Suffolk Community College in Brentwood). The Connecticut Pet Show, normally held each October, will now be held in November. This year’s show dates are Nov. 11-12.
