North Gong Dog Day 2019 - September 14


The Illawarra's best day for dogs returns for 2019! 

Following the success from last year's event, Pound Paws and North Gong Hotel are combining forces again to save the lives of homeless pets! 

Come and celebrate dog rescue with a whole heap of tail-wagging activities, ranging from: dog crystal healing, Doga (Doggy Yoga), Grooming, Puppy Ball Pit, Puppy-cinnos and even the chance to share a dog-friendly beer with your furry best friend at the pub! 
The draw card of the event are all of the adorable rescue dogs that are looking for their fur-ever home. Attendees will have the opportunity to get up close and potentially find their new furry best friend! 


This event is proud to have hosted Australia’s first ever, Sausage Dog Ninja Warrior Course, an obstacle course for silly sausages to enter involving Dachshunds toddling through tunnels to even eating mini hotdogs! 
The winner will receive an Official Trophy and the champion title of ‘Sausage Dog Ninja Warrior Weiner’. Last year's competition brought over 25 sausage dog competitors on the day. 

Dogs also have the opportunity to strut their stuff on the stage, showing off their best costumes or tricks, to go in the draw to not only make their fur parents proud, but win some seriously cool prizes too! 
“Pound Paws is appreciative of the on-going support from North Gong Hotel, to raise awareness to the Illawarra local community about the importance of pet adoption. It is great to see the locals positive response to this event and we are looking forward to another successful day!”– Brittany Bloomer, Founder of Pound Paws

“The North Gong Hotel team are avid dog lovers. “We’re super proud to be once again hosting this incredibly fun day for dogs and humans alike. The event has quickly become a favourite in our calendar and helps promote an important message. We can’t wait to meet all the pooches!” – Tobias Wiedemann, North Gong Hotel Manager.

Pound Paws charity provides a modern approach to the overall process of pet adoption. The charity has been supported by the likes of The Morning Show and The Living Room, to further promote the great work it does for our homeless pets. The charity hosts dog adoption events every month in different areas around Australia, as well as operate an online search engine which fast tracks the overall adoption process for potential pet owners. 

The North Wollongong Hotel will come alive with dogs demonstrating circuit training performances, live music and even the opportunity to strut their stuff on the stage, showing off their best costumes or tricks – a moment which would make any fur-parent proud! 
North Gong Hotel has been openly dog-friendly for a number of years. 

With a great location, delicious food and a welcoming, dog-loving team, North Gong is the perfect place to catch up with friends when you can’t bear to leave your best friend at home
