There will be fun for the entire family at the grand opening of the relocated West Hollywood PETCO located at 508 N. Doheny Dr., on Saturday and Sunday, June 2 and 3, 2001. The new store replaces the previous location at 8905 Melrose Ave.
Highlighting the weekend's special events will be a Fat Cat Contest. Visitors are encouraged to bring in their felines for a chance to win exciting prizes. Four-legged visitors to the store can also take advantage of a pet psychic and professional pet photography. For the kids, a clown will offer face painting, plus Blue Mews will make appearances throughout the weekend. In addition, several rescue groups will be on hand offering information and pet adoptions.
