Here’s What People Had To Say About PetCon

Pet lovers from across the country gathered in New York City last weekend for our first annual PetCon. Hundreds of people showed up to meet some of their favorite famous pets, mingle with other pet people, and learn how to make their own pet a star. News organizations like The Verge, Good Morning America, E! News, and Us Weekly all came to cover this amazing event. In addition to all the press coverage, PetCon got tons of love on social media from both our pet influencers and their fans. Here’s a look at what they had to say:

Petcon…dream come true!!

No one can escape the puparazzi…especially not a star like Pardon Thy French.

There were plenty of stars, but the adoptable pups definitely stole the show.

This superfan was spotted with all her favorite Instagram stars.

Fangirling harder over dogs than people was a common theme this weekend.

There was definitely no shortage of amazing dog fashion ~looks~.

Everyone was all smiles, especially our pal Walter.

For those who couldn’t make it to PetCon, we feel your pain. It was definitely an amazing weekend filled with more adorable animals than we could handle. But hopefully all these photos and posts give you an idea of all the pet-filled fun.
