Smith Family Plaza in Pottstown goes to the dogs… and cats and other animals

    Smith Family Plaza in Pottstown Saturday had a different kind of crowd gather.

    It was a day for the pets yesterday as Pottstown celebrated its first pet fair.

    The Mercury reports the event was organized by the employees of the Pottstown Codes Department, with a goal of bringing pet owners together with their pets.

    In addition, organizers say they hope the event also brought potential pet owners together with animal groups.
