“Show Dogs — It Ain’t Westminster” is GIE+Expo’s first-ever rescue adoption event.

Kris Kiser, Outdoor Power Equipment Institute president and CEO, is passionate about three things: the outdoor power equipment industry, GIE+Expo and rescue dogs.

Now he’s found a way to tie all those things together at this fall’s show, with a public rescue-dog adoption event to be held on the trade show floor.

“GIE+Expo is about the people who create the outdoor spaces for pets, kids and families, and our own beloved rescue dog Lucky is the inspiration for and face of the TurfMutt education program,” Kiser says. “This adoption event will tie all that together, let us give back to the community of Louisville, and showcase the good work of the Kentucky Humane Society.”

GIE+Expo attendees are invited to the Kentucky Convention Center’s Freedom Hall Thursday, Oct. 18, during lunch for a first-ever rescue adoption event to find their next best friends and adopt their own backyard superheroes. Get ready for “Show Dogs — it Ain’t Westminster.”
