The 2014 Anchorage Pet Expo and Continental Auto Group Challenge Attendees to Fill the Trunk!

2014 Anchorage Pet Expo's Official Automotive Sponsor, Continental Auto Group, and the Anchorage SPCA in order to raise food donations for the SPCA’s Food Bank.

Online PR News – 30-May-2014 – Anchorage, AK – Continental Subaru, Alaskan-owned and operated since they opened in 1971, will be at the 2014 Anchorage Pet Expo as the Official Automotive Sponsor for the second year in a row. The company is heavy on community involvement and supports many local organizations, such as the Scotty Gomez Foundation, Bike MS, Kikkan Randall’s Fast and Female Camp and many local High School Sports programs.

“We’re Alaskans helping other Alaskans and their pets. The Pet Expo allows us to do just that,” said Susan Hamilton, Director of Advertising. This year, however, they’re doing something a little different. With three vehicles at the event, two will be used to demonstrate how pet-friendly the Subaru can be, while the third will be used to Fill the Trunk!

Attendees will be encouraged to bring as many pet-related items to go into the Subaru Vehicle positioned at the entrance of the Expo. At the end of the day, all of the items in the vehicle will go to the Alaska SPCA’s Pet Food Bank.

“This program; supported entirely by community donations from businesses, organizations, and individuals; provides assistance to families experiencing difficulties feeding their pets,” says Christynne Triplady of the Alaska SPCA. In 2013, items from the pet food bank were able to help over 2,500 families with pet food and the SPCA was able to send several thousands of pounds of food to communities affected by the Yukon River flooding.

This is the very first year Amazing Expos, the Production Firm that produces the Anchorage Pet Expo, has participated in a Fill the Trunk Challenge. “We look forward to seeing the results of such an interesting Community Challenge,” says Patti Welch, Vice President of Amazing Expos, “We hope to continue the endeavor at future expos.”

The Anchorage Pet Expo will feature more than 50 exhibitors, live entertainment and demonstrations, and a mega-adoption area with tons of rescue pets available for adoption. Low-cost immunizations, discounted microchipping and free nail trims will also be available for all the furry friends who need them.

The event will take place on Saturday, September 27th, 2014 from 10am to 6pm, at Dena'ina Civic and Convention Center. This free, indoor and air-conditioned event is expected to attract more than 12,000 attendees along with their furry, feathered and reptilian pals who are looking to enjoy a new and one-of-a-kind experience where all pets can enjoy a fun day out with their pet parent(s). All well-behaved pets are welcome, as long as they’re on a fixed lead (or in a carrier) and have proof of age-appropriate rabies vaccines.

The 2014 Anchorage Pet Expo is produced by Amazing Expos, a leading event production firm that currently produces more than 39 large pet expos across the United States. For more information, call 800-977-3609, email or visit, or
