A fun day out for the local community to come together and celebrate the wonderful companionship which we share with our pets. Whether you’re looking for a dog to adopt, or simply just a fun day out with your furry friend, this is the perfect event for you!

The newly launched Bella Vista Pocket Park is conveniently located right by the Bella Vista Station, a fun vibrant park for all ages - humans and pets! Pound Paws is delighted to be hosting a Dog Day event on site, to help educate the local community about the importance of pet adoption, as well as introduce pet owners to this new trendy space!

Attendees can be treated to a variety of paw-some activities, starting with a live Doga session in the morning, sharing a mat with your pooch then treated to a Darby’s Dog Bakery & Deli puppy-cinno after stretching! 

Throughout the day, there will be live music, pet market stalls, rescue dogs waiting for cuddles and the famous Best Dog Trick & Best Costume competitions, hosted by a VIP Judging Panel including the likes of The Hills Shire Mayor, Dr Peter Gangemi and Coco The Peekapoo, an extravagant doggie influencer who you may recognise from Rebel Wilson’s ‘Pooch Perfect’ Television Show, as aired on Channel 7.

The event is run by Pound Paws with a mission to raise awareness about pet adoption to the local community, there will be a variety of dog rescue groups located in NSW. 

By hosting these Dog Day events, it allows rescue groups to connect with potential adoptees and find a potential home for their rescue dogs, as well as raise much needed funds.
