If you’re a pet lover (like me!) and you’re in Cebu or bound for Cebu (like me again! Woohoo!), then you must visit the PAWPALOOZA Pet Festival at Banilad Town Centre, Cebu City on September 22, 2012 (Saturday) from 1 PM to 7 PM.
The PAWPALOOZA Pet Festival at pet-friendly mall Banilad Town Centre (BTC Cebu) is a fab time for you to bond with your precious pets 🙂 The PAWPALOOZA Pet Festival also aims to promote responsible pet ownership, foster camaraderie among pet owners and just provide both pet owners and their pets an overall fantastic, “pawsome” time! (I know, I know, so cute!)
Registration of pets will begin at 1 p.m.
Activities during the Pawpalooza Pet Festival Cebu:
– free veterinary and grooming services that include anti-rabies vaccination, deworming and nail trimming
– online photo contest
– “Pawsonalities” photo exhibit (first ever photo exhibit featuring Cebu’s top personalities and their fur babies)
– launch of the Philippine Dogs Athletic Association (there will also be a dog walk and agility demonstration)
– fashion show with the Shiz Tzu Club
– talk on training the companion dog (real training for real life skills)
– pet adoption booth and a photo booth
Registration for participation in the fashion show and contest is at P100 with net of the proceeds going to the Island Rescue Foundation (IRO), a SEC registered non-profit organization composed of volunteers dedicated to helping the plight of animals in the region through rescue, education and advocacy.
By the way, there’s an ongoing Pawpalooza Pet Look-Alike Contest. Just submit any photo of you and your pet, which shows a striking resemblance or theme, be it through costumes, color-coordinated outfits, expressions, poses or even a more physical likeness. Just be creative. Email your photo to [email protected] on or before September 30, 6 p.m. and wait for it to appear with the rest of the finalists on BTC’s official page on Facebook www.facebook.com/baniladtowncenter for online voting.
The Pawpalooza Pet Festival at Banilad Town Center Cebu is brought to you by Cebu Veterinary Doctors, Cebu Shih Tzu Club, Philippine Dog Athletics Association, K9 Care Dog Sport, Island Rescue Organization, Silk Creation, Sassy Pets Enterprises, Banana Babies, Royal Pictures and the City of Cebu.
