Visit Dogs’ Home of Tasmania at Tassie’s first pet expo!
Tasmania’s first Pet Expo is coming to Launceston on Saturday, November 20 to celebrate all creatures great and small with many wonderful exhibitors from across the state, including Companion Animal Network’s member Dogs’ Home of Tasmania!
The one-day family-friendly event held at the Launceston Silverdome promotes responsible pet ownership and the welfare of our native wildlife. All proceeds raised from the event will be donated to Tasmanian animal shelter.
The Dogs’ Home of Tasmania is calling all animal lovers to visit their stand, learn more about making their dogs’ lives more fulfilling through enrichment and find out about the wonderful pooches available for adoption at their Launceston shelter. Plus, shop for goodies to pamper their doggies at home!
“Our mission is simple – Adopt Don’t Shop. The most rewarding thing someone can do is adopt a dog. They aren’t damaged goods; some need a second chance, others need a first chance, and we are more than happy to help them find their loving home,” said DHoT CEO Michael Sertori.
“Also, we are heavily promoting enrichment because dogs are like kids; they get bored! They need entertainment and this can be achieved with toys and food or - even better – combining them! We will have dog treats, snuffle mats, licki mats and other enrichment items for purchase and can show people how to use it.”
DHOT will also have recipes for you to take home and try out!
“Kids can also guess how many dog biscuits are in our mystery jar and enter our competition to win a doggie goodie hamper!” said Mr Sertori.
DHOT is not government funded and do rely on the public for support.
“Donating to us helps us maintain our Homes and keep vital maintenance and improvements up to date,” he said. “Due to the harsh cleaning products we use, it starts to erode away at our kennels and equipment, and we are constantly doing upgrades so our dogs are happy, safe and comfortable.”
DHOT will have a donation box at their stand, but donations can be added to purchases or contributions made via the website www.dhot.com.au.
