Filming of The Canine Cup Adelaide - October 13

Filming of 'the Race that Makes the Nation Paws'

The Adelaide Canine Cup is the dog lovers alternative to the Adelaide Cup horse race.

The Canine Cup is a luncheon held on the Adelaide Cup Public Holiday, however our ‘races’ of dogs running (or not running if they don’t feel like it!) to their owners at the finish line are all pre-recorded.

We would love you to be there to witness the hilarity and complete cuteness that are our ‘races’! 

Race Filming (6 races in total)

If horse racing isn’t your thing but gorgeous rescue dogs and puppies and their antics are, please join us for the filming of the races.

We will have an all Scottish Terrier race, an all Bernese Mountain Dog race, an all Iggy (Italian Greyhound) race and three mixed breed races including some Instagram celebrity pups! You can view our ‘cast’ at

Following the success of 2 consecutive sellout year - this event raised $5,000 in 2018 and $7,000 in 2019 - we’re aiming to raise $10,000 in 2020

On Canine Cup Day, we will have sweeps (watch the race that makes the nation paws and have a giggle or two as dogs have oodles of fun chasing and racing each other), plus raffles, silent auction and fashions on the field, whilst helping provide much needed funds for Guardian Angel Animal Rescue.

All proceeds go to Guardian Angel Animal Rescue which assists them in:

✔️ rescuing and rehoming dogs throughout SA 
✔️ helping regional areas with vet work and de-sexing and
✔️ aiming to stop the cycle of unwanted litters in remote communities.
