Tuesday, October 22, 2013
BANILAD Town Centre (BTC), a pet-friendly mall since it opened in 2005, presents the second annual PAWPALOOZA Pet Festival on Sunday, Oct. 27, 2013 from 1– 7 p.m.
Celebrate that bond between you and your pets in an afternoon of fun activities.
Dress your pet in ‘pawsome’ outfits and join the Trick or Treat around the mall or join the on-the-spot fashion show organized by the Cebu Shih Tzu Club and Cebu Chihuahua Club to win exciting prizes. Registration for the fashion show 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.
As a treat, the Cebu Veterinary Doctors (CVD) will be conducting free consultation and vaccination services while dog trainer Chad Badinas will be giving a workshop on basic tricks. Another highlight is the unveiling of the annual photo exhibit featuring Cebu’s “Pawsonalities” and their fur babies to promote responsible pet ownership.
