At Eurotunnel Le Shuttle we love making it even easier for you to take your pets on holiday, and even when you can't take them with you, there are still plenty of ways to have a pet-centric trip. If you’re planning on travelling to France and Europe this autumn, we’ve chosen some of the best events celebrating pets and animals for you to attend. Read on for more information on where to go and start planning today.

Animo & Nature Salon – Avignon, France

One of France’s biggest animal events, the Animo & Nature Salon is an amazing place for animal lovers to attend. Taking place in Avignon, a beautiful city in south-eastern France, the event will play host to 3,000 dogs and 350 cats, as well as birds, poultry, reptiles, rabbits, farm animals, turtles… and more! If you’d like your pet to take part in the animal fair, you can contact the organisers on the event website. You’re not allowed to bring your pet unless it’s registered for the event, but there are so many different species to see that with or without your pet, this fair can’t be missed.

Amions Cat Show – Amions, France

A commune in the Loire department, Amions has a brilliant cat show, Exposition féline d'Amions. Organised by the Cat Club Lyon Dauphiné Savoie, this contest is recognised by the Federation for the management of the Official Feline Origins Studbook (LOOF) and can be found in the centre of Amions. You can easily register your cat online, and the deadline is 29th August. It’s a fascinating show covering numerous categories of feline, with about 200 cats taking part. This part of France is stunning, so it’s the ideal place to enjoy the gorgeous autumnal weather in the Loire countryside, before heading home.

RasseHunde – Rostock, Germany

In northern Germany, the city of Rostock holds a brilliant international dog show, RasseHunde, each year. In 2016, the show will see its 13th year, and it welcomes all dog owners and their dogs to attend. You can find fantastic shopping opportunities for all of your doggy toy and treat needs, plus thousands of different breeds of dog to see. There are professionals on hand to give you advice on how to care for and train your dog, as well as free health checks for your pooch. There will also be fun events to watch, all judged by professionals in the field. If you’re bringing your dog, you’ll need a vaccination card for it to be allowed into the event. Puppies under three months aren’t allowed.

RasseHunde will take place on 1st and 2nd October, 2016.
