Camping trips with pets are often not pos­si­ble due to lim­ited pet-friendly re­sorts and Trans­porta­tion. But 350 campers had the plea­sure of an overnight event, “Pets Camp Out,” at the ru­ral high­lands of Alta Rios Re­sort in In­dang, Cavite.

Five free round-trip shut­tle buses were pro­vided to reg­is­tered campers from all four points of Metro Manila to the unique get­away with their pets. Aside from the ex­clu­sive free­bies given upon en­ter­ing the event, free tents and bar­be­cued meals were pro­vided, as well as ac­cess to the re­sort’s recre­ational fa­cil­i­ties.

Among the 350 campers who at­tended were sev­eral pet groups: Mini Pin­scher Lovers Philip­pines, Bos­ton Ter­rier Tribe Philip­pines, UP MMDA VAN­GUARD K9 Search & Res­cue, Golden Re­triever Club Philip­pines, Cat & Dog Fash­ion­istas, CCP Pack, Man­daluy­ong Pack Lead­ers, and Cavite Husky Pack.

All campers par­tic­i­pated in the Palarong Pi­noy, fun agility course, and field games. The sunny and breezy weather was per­fect for both the campers and pets as they es­caped the heat of Metro Manila. At the end of the pro­gram, awards and raf­fles prizes were given away, and the night was capped off with a de­li­cious din­ner and a re­lax­ing bon­fire at the camp­site for everyone to en­joy as they so­cial­ized. Those who were up early the next morn­ing were treated to a guided tour with hik­ing and swim­ming on the trail within the re­sort.

Pets Camp Out was or­ga­nized by Paws and Tails Event Con­cepts and Man­age­ment sup­ported by North Crew Events. Boehringer In­gel­heim and Nex­gard Spectra made the event pos­si­ble, as Pets Camp Out is part of Nex­gard Spectra’s se­ries of events in pro­mot­ing re­spon­si­ble pet own­er­ship.
