Kalgoorlie Miner - - NEWS - Te­gan Guthrie

Adorable pooches will not be the only stars of to­mor­row’s Pet’s Day Out event, with crazy crabs set to take cen­tre stage.

A crazy crab race will be among var­i­ous ac­tiv­i­ties and com­pe­ti­tions held dur­ing the City of Kal­go­or­lie-Boul­der event, which will take place from 10am-1pm at Cen­ten­nial Park.

The friendly pet gath­er­ing is open to all feath­ered, furry and four-legged crea­tures, as long as they are kept on a leash or se­curely con­tained at all times.

The pop­u­lar wag­gi­est tail and pet of the year com­pe­ti­tions will be tak­ing place, so own­ers are en­cour­aged to make sure their pets are ready to im­press.

The event co­in­cides with a leg­is­la­tion change which re­quires all dogs to be mi­crochipped and reg­is­tered, and cats over six months old to be reg­is­tered with the City.

Rangers and vet­eri­nar­i­ans will be on hand of­fer­ing half-price oneyear cat and dog reg­is­tra­tions and dis­counted mi­crochip­ping dur­ing the event.

Stall­hold­ers, in­clud­ing the RSPCA Kal­go­or­lie Aux­il­iary and Sav­ing An­i­mals from Eu­thana­sia Kal­go­or­lie-Boul­der, will be fundrais­ing on the day.
