The Big Doggie Day, Sydney - June 11

Hosted by not-for-profit pound Sydney Dogs and Cats Home, ‘The Big Doggie Day' will take place on June 11 at Sydney Park in St Peters, New South Wales.

It aims to bring together Sydney's dog-loving community and will include walking tracks for dogs & their owners, a multiple of dog-focused stalls and exciting activities.
Inspired by similar mass dog walks held overseas, the idea quickly took off and meant the event's date and location had to changed to cater for larger than expected crowds.
“The main goal of The Big Doggie Day was initially to just bring people and their dogs together but after seeing how many people wanted an event like this, it grew very rapidly".
Participants are encouraged to bring gold coin donations for the Sydney Dogs and Cats Home, who will also hold a supplies drive to donate towels, blankets, tins of food and toys to animal rescue groups. You do not need to own a dog to participate as the event is open to the public.
This year, Sydney Dogs and Cats Home is planning on building a bigger home for rescued animals in Sydney council areas, with the aim to build Sydney’s largest charity pound and community facility that does not place a time limit for animals needing to be adopted. Established in 1949, the Sydney organisation seeks to prevent the unnecessary euthanasia of animals, but give them a second chance at life by facilitating their rehoming process.
Each year, the charity organisation welcomes up to 3,000 lost, abandoned, and mistreated pets.  "We want to show to show people that they can make a contribution to help stop the problem by simply choosing to adopt rather than buy animals," said Australian event organiser Hannah Klomp.
“The issue of euthanasia is massive in Australia... We want to show people that they can make a contribution to help stop the problem by simply choosing to adopt rather than buy animals.”
When: Saturday 11th June, 10am - 3pm

Where: Sydney Park, St. Peters
All walking tracks begin and end in the Village Green.

Cost: Free!
