“Pet’s Day Out is open to all animal owners and lovers, so even those who don’t own a pet are welcome to come along to enjoy a spectacular pet related program for all ages,” Mosman Council Manager Communications Liz Bennett said.

For those interested in starting or extending their pet family, Doggie Rescue and Greyhound Rescue, which homes approximately 150 greyhounds a year, will be at the event to provide information on dog adoption.

“Greyhounds are gentle and affectionate, don’t bark much, don’t need much exercise and are 70km/h ‘couch potatoes’, what more could you ask for?” co-founder of Greyhound Rescue Peter Flann said.

Bring a bag for the many sample giveaways and products for purchase available from the colourful stalls on the day including delicious and organic pet food and pet supplies.
