Full House Gala at the Western Canadian Pet Industry Trade Show

PIJAC Canada: Ottawa ON, March 9, 2017 - One of the most anticipated events for networking, socializing and fun is happening on June 4th at the Western Canadian Pet Industry Trade Show. It’s the first ever Full House Gala - a Night of Festivities and Fundraising.

Join your fellow industry brethren for a fabulous evening following the first day of the show. Diners will be treated to a sumptuous meal and evening of entertainment which will be followed by Vegas inspired After Party. The first ever Animal Welfare is Everyone’s Business Retailer Award for western Canada will also be handed out.

A silent auction will run during the evening with proceeds going to the Calgary Food Bank - Pet Food initiative.  Guests will delight in bidding on a wonderful variety of items donated by breweries, wineries and others.

In addition, PIJAC Canada will direct 25% of all ticket sales directly to the Calgary Food Bank to help support pet families in need.  "Working with the Calgary Food Bank to support their pet food initiative makes complete sense. Supporting the health of pet families in need leads to positive lifelong pet experiences.  This is something that drives our work as an association." says Louis McCann, association President & CEO “It's a no brainer. Simply by showing up guests will help feed hungry pets.”

Tables and individual tickets are being sold quickly, so attendees are encouraged to plan ahead to avoid disappointment. The event is open exclusively for registered show participants and exhibiting companies.  Space can be reserved during the pre-registration process for visitors and by emailing

  1. No matter which breed, gender or age of cat you have at home, they may often get notorious while playing. They are always curious to explore the world around. In such a situation, it becomes difficult for pet owners to limit them indoors. The fact is that allowing cats to roam freely outside means they can get exposed to a variety of life-threatening risk and diseases. Feel free to visit my website.
