Shanghai was in no shortage of cute and fuzzy creatures this past weekend as thousands of pets descended upon the city in time for the 5th Annual Shanghai Pet Fair that kicked off last Friday.
In addition to the typical Pomeranian, Chihuahua, and housecat, the three-day event also welcomed alpacas and ferrets, confirming the nation’s longstanding affinity with exotic animals.
Last year’s Shanghai Pet Fair made headlines when a few overzealous pet owners played matchmaker in hopes of finding their pet a partner.
If you missed the fair this time around, there’s always round two when the 16th Pet Fair Asia exhibition comes to the Shanghai World Expo Exhibition & Convention Center this August!
