Each year the CHA participates in the America's Family Pet Expo held at the Orange County Fairgrounds. This event draws thousands of people, and is one of the best opportunities for educating the public about proper hamster care. This is a fantastic event with thousands of animals of all species in attendance. Admission fee is $12 for adults and $6 for children age 6-12. We invite you to come visit the CHA booth. For more information on the Expo please visit their website www.petexpooc.com

In order to make this event possible, the CHA relies on volunteers to man the booth and help educate people about all things hamster. Enthusiastic volunteers are needed, all that is required is a willingness to learn and the ability to spend at least 4 hours in the booth talking to people about hamsters. Volunteers will receive free admission to the expo on the day they volunteer. For details email [email protected]


i went last year and helped out a little bit. i brought nano, and she got her nails trimmed. i am hoping to be able to help out this year as well. the pet expo is a lot of fun. there are tons of different animals there. super pet is even there and have "hamster cage building contests" using their parts. i won some free CT stuff from that.

I'll try to get as many pictures as I can! As far as I know, I'll be volunteering at the CHA booth on Saturday.

I want to make a posterboard about bin cages to put up on display at the booth. I emailed her and asked her if I could do it.
