Event activities included a pet costume contest complete with prizes, vendors of animal rescue services and related fields, and, of course, aircraft on display for up close public viewing.

Kathy Fox, Quality Assurance Manager at Sierra Hotel Aero, Inc. based at the South St. Paul Airport said the response from the event they put together last year was so positive that they started planning immediately for this year.

Once again, pet owners, rescue agencies, vendors of pet supplies, aircraft owners, and general public met at the CAF hangar to network, and to find out the most up to date news.

STEM Bunnies founder Caleb Smith (12) reported his educational, nonprofit organization based on the policy of doing foster care before purchasing a bunny, has now expanded into five states.
