Saturday the 14th March was a fun day out for all families including their fur babies at Pet Angel’s Pet’s Day Out.
The event held at their brand new modern Pet Funeral home was a roaring success. Some would say why would you hold a Pet’s Day Out at a pet funeral home? It was more so a celebration of life as you walked through the doors at Pet Angel – filled with helium balloons and beautiful pooches of all kinds having a ‘ball’!
There were a variety of activities on offer including an animal farm for the kids and dog trick training with Ben from Animal Antics. It didn’t matter what skill level, Ben devoted time to helping owners train and have some fun with their fur babies.
There were a lot of freebies on offer from engraved pet tags to frisbees, the dogs also couldn’t keep there eyes off the sausage sizzle supplied by Rotary Queensland. The major prize to be won from the day was a competition run through Pet Angel’s Facebook page – a professional pet photography shoot with well-known Brisbane pet photographer Charlotte Reeves worth over $1000!
All event attendees were dressed in their best attire from sausage dogs in tuxedos to tutu’s. The team at Pet Angel had the chance to meet many pets and their owners including two beautiful pugs China and Biskit and a beautiful Jack Russell cross Fox Terrier named Jasper. There was also a star appearance from Chloe Walters, Queensland’s Miss Teen contender with her dog, Peanut.
The crowd had the chance to meet presenter Al Dobie from Gold FM as the radio was aired live from Pet’s Day Out. Lot’s of people stopped in for a look with their pets browsing the many stalls. Pet photography prints could be purchased on the day through the Maxprint stall with all proceeds going to Best Friends Rescue.
Apart from a day of fun and socialising, Pet’s Day Out was able to raise $242.65 for a not for profit charity Best Friends Rescue. Pet Angel decided to raise the donation to a total of $1000.00 to support BFR in helping animals to be rehomed with loving and caring owners.
Amber Morely from Best Friends Rescue said “We would like to give our sincere thanks to Pet Angel for allowing Best Friends Rescue to be part of such a wonderful event. We had great foot traffic to the stall with two serious enquiries about little Winnie, which we hope will lead to an adoption.
“We were able to talk to people about our rescue work, adopting and fostering which will help rescue more dogs” said Amber. For more information about Best Friends Rescue please visit www.bestfriendsrescue.com.
