Calling all furry, scaled and feathered friends – Burdekin Shire Council’s Pet Fair is here!
Bring your human to Kennedy Street dog park, Ayr on Sunday 16 June from 9am to 12pm for a fun day out for the whole family, including creatures big and small.
There will be plenty of fun competitions including the Best Trick, Most Unusual Pet, Best Dressed Pet, and Large and Small Animal Agility competitions.
Hands on wildlife demonstrations, pet photography and a kids’ jumping castle are also part of the fun.
There will be Dawgy Eats available for the pooches, whilst the Dal Santo’s Coffee Van will be available for humans.
And for those who feel their heart and home can fit one more family member, Burdekin Pet Rescue will have cats and dogs available for adoption.
Mayor Lyn McLaughlin said the much-loved free event, which was formerly called the Pet Day Out, was a fantastic opportunity for pet owners to bring their furry friends to mingle with like-minded animal lovers.
“The Pet Fair is a terrific way to promote responsible pet ownership and to celebrate our love for animals and pets within the community,” Cr McLaughlin said.
“As a reward for responsible pet ownership, we will again be offering $15 discounted microchipping for all currently registered cats and dogs.
“We will also be hosting a Registered for Life draw, where one lucky registered pet owner will receive free animal registration for the remainder of the pet’s life.
“Entry is free and all pets are welcome – no matter how big or small.”
Please note all dogs must be on a leash at all times.
