Municipalities, institutions, companies, organizations and animal lovers are gathering to socialize, exchange experiences, attend exhibitions and learn new things about their favorite animals.

Over 4,000 animals of most varieties (of which over 130 races) will be in place and more than 60 exhibitors and more than 70 different program items provide an exciting exhibition. It will include dog and cat shows, display of birds of prey and the opportunity to take a close look at insects and spiders. There will also be a photo exhibition under the name “Arctic Challenge”, which tells of Arctic adventure with dogs.

Among the items on the program include the demonstration of police dogs, service dogs and caring dogs and Agility Show. In addition, visitors will be able to see the breed “Russian Toy” for the first time in Spain.

The show’s main goal is to demonstrate knowledge of the pets’ needs and how best to care for them.

The organizers, Málaga Congress Hall, Malaga municipality and a large number of companies and organizations are justifiably proud to collect as many different actors in different care about the animals and their well-being and share their expertise.
