ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill. — The Chicagoland Family Pet Expo is the largest pet expo under one roof in the United States.

From snakes and alligators to cockatoos and parrots, the three-day event in Arlington Heights has every animal family represented.

While many vendors sell pet supplies and treats, other showcase rescue dogs — both for quiet therapy and physical activity.

Most of the animals can be held, and love the attention.
