A big part of the show is about raising awareness for cat rescue and the PETstock Adoption Zone is a unique opportunity to learn all about Cat adoption with experts on hand and dozens of rescue groups and shelters exhibiting.

Expanding on 2019, there will be over 30 rescue groups taking part with many bringing in Cats that are available for adoption now.

Featuring many activities for the whole family, kids can get their face painted for free at the Kitty Face Painting before snapping some memories at the Glitter Selfie Wall. Adults aren’t left out either – after being treated to a glass of bubbly you can get your nails done by Clara H Nails, a technician that will keep you feline fine.

Of course, there will also be a large number of exhibitors showcasing products and toys especially suited to your furry friend.
