          the Story BEHIND thE HUDSON VALLEY PET EXPO

                  SOME NEW FRIENDS that are available

VCA Animal Specialty & Emergency Center is a public corporation and has no business associations to the recipients of this event.

 This is truly a story of people wanting to make a difference in the world, and then actually doing something to bring about that change! 

  "The Hudson Valley Pet Expo" & the "People for Pets Motorcycle Run" was created in 2016 by Barry Shipes of VCA Animal Specialty & Emergency Center & Paul & Joannie of Orange County Choppers. Their love for animals forced them to organize something that was not only fun, but also beneficial for those that take care of pets on an everyday basis. The first year recipients were the Hudson Valley SPCA, located in New Windsor NY & the Dutchess County SPCA, located in Hyde Park NY. They each received 50% of all funds raised from the event! We promised to make this an annual event to aid shelters and care givers throughout the Hudson Valley each year!


That has not changed! We will be announcing this years recipients very soon!

 So if you enjoyed last years activities, make sure to contact us about being a recipient this year! You never know, it could be your turn!
