Animals in for a treat at special day for pets
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.
