It’s time to celebrate the howl-idays and boy, has Pound Paws got a jolly day out planned for you!

The event is run by Pound Paws with a mission to raise awareness about pet adoption to the local community, in support of Animal Rescue Sydney, a local dog rescue group who will be bringing dogs available for adoption. By hosting these Dog Day events, it allows rescue groups to connect with potential adoptees and find a potential home for their rescue dogs, as well as raise much needed funds. Pet education is also key at this event, with a focus on responsible pet ownership & pet health, proudly sponsored by Pet Health Insurance Services. Pet Health Insurance Services would like to share the importance of pet insurance and have a promotional offer provided by Budget Direct pet insurance. When using the promo code FREEVACCS when purchasing a Budget Direct pet insurance policy you will be able to redeem up to $150 of vaccination costs within the first 12 months*.

Don’t have a dog? No problem, this event will have dogs available for adoption from Animal Rescue Sydney, as well as the opportunity for you to connect with fellow pet lovers and owners on the day. Expect Dawes Point Park to be fill of waggin’ tails!
Dogs also have the opportunity to strut their stuff on the stage, showing off their best Christmas costumes or tricks, to go in the draw to not only make their fur-parents proud, but win some seriously cool prizes too! There will be a VIP Judging Panel, including the likes of Christa Billich (as seen on Housewives of Sydney & Director of Billich Gallery), Manolo Pigmop (Doggie Influencer), Crystal Lynne (Fur-mum to Manolo and star in Sydney’s Crazy Rich Asians) and Leo Sayers (International Musician).
