Pound Paws Dog Day at Bondi Beach - May 23

Bondi Beach’s iconic Dog Day returns, coming in hot thanks to a successful first year event (2019) hosted by Pound Paws and supported by Waverley Council, Baxta Pets and Mad Paws.

Whether you're a Bondi Hipster, Yogi or from out of town, all hoo-mans are welcome to join in for a paw-some day, raising awareness about the importance of choosing to adopt instead of shop!

Judging from the amount of tails wagging and human smiles from the first year, the Pound Paws team have gone above and beyond, to ensure this follow-up event is just as pawsome.

Attendees can get creative and enter the Best Dog Trick and Best Costume Contests. Their little dog-tor or Hairy Potter is sure to impress our VIP Judges, including Simon Hill from Plant Proof, Dr Kate Adams from Bondi Vet, Chris Kerr from Waverley Council, and Coco Stedman from Married At First Sight 2021!

About Pound Paws Charity

Pound Paws provides a modern approach to the overall adoption process, furthermore reducing the amount of pets that end up on death row per year. Their aim is to educate the Australian public about the importance of pet adoption, aid rescue centres and pounds across Australia, as well as streamline the whole adoption process, via their online search engine.

Pound Paws Dog Day events have been running for over four years around Australia. The events that Pound Paws organise are 100% charity fundraising events, as a way to not only raise awareness about pet adoption to local communities, but celebrate the wonderful companionship which we share with our pet.
