BURGAW, NC (WECT) - Dogs lovers from around the area gathered at the Poplar Grove Plantation for the 2nd annual Happy Trails Pet Expo. The event had been previously postponed due to Hurricane Sandy.

The event include attractions including an obstacle course and a painting pooch, who happens to be a rescue himself.

A number of local rescue organizations had dogs available for adoption as well as booths offering pet services.

Admission fees and proceeds accumulated throughout the day will be donated to local rescue groups as well as the Poplar Grove Plantation, a non-profit organization.
