Being the first pet-loving mall in Cebu, Parkmall is once again gathering pets and pet lovers at the 10th year of the grandest and most diverse pet event in the country, the Pet Festival Philippines on May 16-26, 2019.
Following the success of last year’s pet event, Parkmall continues to celebrate the special relationship between pets and their humans, as well as promote responsible pet ownership through this year’s Pet Festival Philippines.
In partnership with over 30 pet clubs, the event will cater to more than 10 different kinds of pets including dogs, birds, snakes, rabbits, fishes, hamsters, and even exotic animals like iguanas and bearded dragons, making it the most diverse pet gathering, not just in Cebu, but in the entire country as well.
The Pet Festival Philippines promises to be even grander this year as Parkmall hosts the 10th year of the unrivaled pet runway competition, the Pawshionista. This year’s Pawshionista theme is Fiesta Filipinas. Fashionable pets and their owners will sport the costume of their assigned Philippine festival with a pageant-type set up on May 19.
Another event highlight is the 4th Philippine Dog Sport Championship in partnership with the Philippine Dog Agility Association and K9 CARE (Cebu Agility Run Enthusiast) Dog Sport. The competition, scheduled on May 25-26, will gather about 80 dog lovers from Cebu, Manila, and other provinces.
The Pet Festival Philippines will also host a number of exciting activities, including the All-Breed Fun Match on May 18, participated by various pet breeds and ages. Another is the Pet Adventure PLUS on May 19, where a team of 3 pet and pet handlers take on challenging obstacle courses.
There will also be a PETucation (Pet Education), an open forum on animal welfare, responsible pet ownership and pet health care with representatives from Mandaue City Veterinary Clinic, Island Rescue Organization, Bureau of Animal Industry and Animal Wellness Veterinary Clinic on May 17.
This gathering will not be complete without the Parade of Pets, a festive march of pets and pet owners around Parkmall.
Apart from these activities, the Mandaue City Veterinary Clinic will also offer FREE anti-rabies vaccinations for the pets of Mandaue City residents. The Pet Festival Philippines’ beneficiary, the Island Rescue Organization (IRO), will have a pet adoption on May 16-19.
Having been accredited by the Bureau of Animal Industry (BAI) as an animal control facility, Parkmall continues to live by its passion for promoting responsible pet ownership through its events and mall facilities. The accreditation means that the entire Parkmall property is safe and conducive for pets. Parkmall is the only mall in Cebu to be accredited as such by BAI.
So mark your calendars and bring your pets along with you on May 16-26 for the Pet Festival Philippines 2019 only at your favorite pet loving mall, Parkmall!
