Who doesn’t love a fun play-day out with their furry friends? This Sun­day, ex­pect that and more at a pet con­ven­tion in the city. Back af­ter a suc­cess­ful first edi­tion in the Cap­i­tal last year, the event has on of­fer lots of treats, ac­tiv­i­ties and games for you and your ca­nine and fe­line com­pan­ions.

Start­ing 10am, you can get busy with the Pet Walk, Puppy Ther­apy, Fun Games, Photo Booth and Bake Sale as you enjoy live mu­sic and soak in the win­ter sun. And don’t miss the life-size ken­nel that will be painted by Delhi Street Art. Also, with the event be­ing al­co­hol-friendly this time, pet lovers can treat them­selves to chilled beer avail­able at the venue.

“Pet Fed is about cel­e­brat­ing our love for all the furry friends out there and giv­ing pet lovers a mem­o­rable day. We re­ceived a tremen­dous re­sponse last year and the event has grown ten­fold since. We’ve tried to in­cor­po­rate as many re­quests from pet lovers as we could with the in­clu­sion of cats and ham­sters in the fes­ti­val, and the pre event cam­paigns did really well. The venue too has been cho­sen spe­cially to cater to a larger foot­fall and more space to play for the pets,” says founder Ak­shay Gupta.

Tempted enough to at­tend but won­der­ing how you’d get there com­fort­ably with your pooch? This year, they’ve part­nered with a pet-friendly ra­dio cab ser­vice.

Grac­ing the event will be union cab­i­net min­is­ter Maneka Gandhi and Rana Atheya, founder, DogSpot.in. And what makes it even bet­ter is that the pro­ceed­ings from the fes­ti­val will go to an­i­mal wel­fare NGO, Frien­di­coes. There will also be an adop­tion counter. So, be wise and sure, and give the lit­tle pups some lov­ing homes, we say.
