Over the past few months, VetCare has been getting involved in a number of pet events around Auckland. We had so much fun participating them, so we decided to hold one of our own.
For those of you who have been with us at VetCare for some time, you may be familiar with our old "Dog & Grog" events held some years ago. We loved it so much that we thought it was about time that we brought it back. On 15th July we relaunched Dog & Grog for a fun-filled day at Pocket Bar & Kitchen in Grey Lynn. It was an amazing success bringing together 50 dogs along with their owners.
We had dogs of all shapes and sizes from 'Gavin' the Leonberger to little 'Sid' the Maltese Cross all enjoying free nail trims, goodie bags, free prize draws and of course, an abundance of treats and cuddles from the VetCare nurses. In fact, it was so successful that we have decided to start hosting them on a monthly basis.
Keep an eye out on Facebook for details of the next event.
We would like to give a big thank you to our sponsors, Healthy Pet Foods (who sell Go! and Now pet food) and Auckland Canine Massage. We were also very lucky to be able to host the event in the very popular Pocket Bar & Kitchen in Grey Lynn. Everyone loved the spacious indoor and outdoor flow for their pooches.
Congratulations to our three winners of the hampers we gave out, and we really hope all the goodie bags are being enjoyed. Nothing beats having a pint with your best friend, so we look forward to seeing more of you at the next Dog & Grog.
