Sydney Dogs and Cats Home is putting on a big doggie do on 11 June to celebrate Sydney’s pups.
The party down at Sydney Park will be a celebration for both Sydney’s pampered pooches and their owners with walking tracks, entertainment, food and market stalls.
“The main goal of The Big Doggie Day is to bring the people of Sydney and their dogs together. An informal Dog Appreciation Society of sorts. It’s a day that firmly places dogs in the spotlight, while also raising awareness for the work we do for thousands of lost and abandoned animals across Sydney,” said a statement from Sydney Dogs and Cats home.
The day is set to be more than just a festival. Sydney Dogs and Cats home is hoping the day will help them raise the money to move their operation to a new location. The not-for-profit pound’s current facility has been slated for redevelopment and sadly the team have been asked to take a walk.
“We’re planning on building a bigger home, allowing us to provide second chances for even more animals across Sydney.”
Though they’re currently in discussion with the State Government, the Big Doggie Day will be a chance to help raise funds to get their new home started.
“Our new facility will help us to save even more animals that end up on death row in kill-shelters across the state, and will also allow us to expand our unique community programs that pair rescue animals with at-risk humans.
“This event is a great way to help put rescue dogs in the spotlight, and showcase the wonderful benefits that come with adopting your next family member.”
The Big Doggie Day will be as Sydney Park, St Peters from 10am–3pm
on Saturday, 11th June. Entry for the festival will be a gold coin donation, but if you can’t make it down a donation to help fund moving the Sydney Dogs and Cats home can be made on their website: http://www.sydneydogsandcatshome.org/
