Stamford Hotel Dog Day 2019 - March 2

Pound Paws will host their first Dog Day event in Victoria on Saturday 2nd March 2019

Stamford Hotel Dog Day is an event collaboration between Pound Paws and Stamford Hotel, Rowville in a mission to raise awareness for local Victorian-based dog rescue groups, whilst also hosting a fun community event, which celebrates the wonderful companionship which we share with our pets.

The mission behind all Pound Paws Dog Day events is to educate the public about the importance of choosing to adopt instead of shop when it comes to getting your next pet. This is done in a fun pro-active approach, with the support from local pet businesses, celebrities and the media.

Stamford Hotel will be activating their outdoor carpark area with live music, entertainment, pet market stalls and dogs available for adoption. 

There will be dogs available for adoption from over seven different rescue groups, including: 

Australian Working Dog Rescue, Labrador Rescue, French Bulldog Rescue & Adoption Victoria Inc, Amazing Greys, The Fur Monsters of Doom, Starting Over Dog Rescue, Waggin Tails Animal Rescue, Hear No Evil – Australian Deaf Dog Rescue.

“We look forward to showcasing all of the happy and healthy dogs that are available for adoption from these rescue groups and educating the public that you can adopt instead of shop when it comes to getting a particular breed.”Brittany Bloomer (Founder - Pound Paws).

Melbourne dog lovers and their pooches are invited to come along for a paw-some day full of activities, which is guaranteed to get tails wagging!
