Friday 27 September is the Grand Final Friday public holiday, so some of our services and centres may be closed or have different hours. Please see more details of all affected services.

It’s an event that’s guaranteed to set tails wagging… our first Pet Expo is coming to town!

On Saturday 17 November, you're invited to the Boroondara Farmers Market for a family (and pet!) fun day out.

If you have a furry, feathery or scaly friend in your household, the Pet Expo is your chance to learn all about caring for your pets, as well as meeting your neighbouring pet owners. You can enjoy:

  • presentations, demonstrations and workshops on responsible pet ownership
  • handy topics on dog obedience, preparing for a puppy, cat behaviour and pet nutrition
  • tips and tricks from a range of animal experts
  • pet registrations
  • information on pet adoption
  •  free microchipping services

Pet Expo

When: 8am to 1pm, Saturday 17 November 2018
Where: Boroondara Farmers Market, Patterson Reserve, Auburn Rd, Hawthorn East

Patterson Reserve is an on-leash reserve and all pets must be kept on leads. Entry is by gold-coin donation; all proceeds support community projects run by the Rotary Club of Glenferrie.
