The Peninsula Pet Expo was a fine way to end our social calendar for 2015. With Rosebud Beach as our backdrop, staff members Alison, Amanda, Naomi and Kylie manned the Society’s Marquee and for the day. We drew the attention of the kids by giving away free bubbles and balloons and talked to many locals about cat adoptions and Kitten Season.
Farmer Dave MC’d the event and local musicians entertained the kids with Peter Combe songs. We saw demonstrations by our old favourites, Howling Huskies and the disc dogs, and a Melbourne Dancing Troupe that danced with dogs. The event was attended by quite a few rescue organisations, including Edgar’s Mission, Pets Haven, Peninsula Cat Rescue, The Australian Rat Fanciers Society, Birdlife Australia, Project Hope Horse Welfare Victoria, and Australian Working Dog Rescue, to name a few.
We feel it is important to have a presence at these expos, as it is giving us a chance to talk to the public and connect with, and expand our community.
Plus we just really love talking about cats!
