RED COL­LAR RES­CUE

Isis Town and Country - - Front Page - By JODIE DIXON

GET your hugs ready, the Isis Pet Re­sort on Good­wood Rd is set to hold a pet adop­tion day on Satur­day.

The pet mo­tel will host the day of fun with Biggen­den’s Red Col­lar Res­cue and Hervey Bay’s Cat Lounge.

A spokes­woman for Red Col­lar Res­cue said the event would be a good op­por­tu­nity for lo­cals to meet and greet with some four-legged friends.

“We’ll prob­a­bly have about a dozen dogs,” she said.

“There will be some small, young, big, pup­pies and older dogs.

“All the Red Col­lar Res­cue peo­ple will be there to an­swer ques­tions.”

The day gives vis­i­tors the op­por­tu­nity to meet all the pets and to ask the ex­perts ques­tions about which breeds might suit their life­style best.

New pets can some­times need time to ad­just to their new homes.

On Satur­day, vis­i­tors to the re­sort will be treated to mar­ket stalls, en­ter­tain­ment, pony rides and a sausage siz­zle.

They will also be able to in­spect the Isis Pet Re­sort.

Isis Pet Re­sort as­sis­tant man­ager Mel Austin said pet own­ers were al­ways wel­come to drop by the re­sort and check out the fa­cil­i­ties.

“We of­fer a wide range of ac­com­mo­da­tion in­clud­ing stan­dard rooms, lux­ury suites and even a VIP lounge,” she said.

She said a point of dif­fer­ence with their busi­ness was of­fer­ing a range of ser­vices in ad­di­tion to board­ing – such as ex­er­cise op­tions, weight man­age­ment, obe­di­ence train­ing and groom­ing.

“We use our so­cial me­dia page to keep their fam­i­lies up to date with pho­tos of their pets dur­ing their hol­i­day,” Ms Austin said.

The day starts this Satur­day at 10.30am to 2.30pm.
