Now in its fifth year, the National Pet Show comes back to Birmingham's NEC on 3rd and 4th November bigger and better than ever.

Far from simply showcasing gorgeous dogs and adorable cats, there'll be a dizzying array of species, from ponies to pythons, chickens to chinchillas and far, far more, all under one roof. There'll be fascinating talks from experts, interactive demonstrations and jaw-dropping animal displays.

With a focus this year on the rehoming of pets from rescue charities, the show's Animal Rescue Barn aims to 'matchmake' as many animals and new owners as possible during the weekend. Pet experts will help to 'find the perfect pet for you', taking in lifestyle and psychological factors to give them their forever home.

The fun-packed Kids Zone will be a magnet for children with an exciting new animal handling area where they ca n meet creatures great and small, learn all about their different needs and how to care for them. Then there are talks, story-telling, book signings, face painting, arts and crafts and much more besides.
