Council calls for Pets in the Park stall holders

Are you a vet or pet groomer? Do you make pet blankets, clothing or treats?

Then Rockhampton Regional Council wants you and your passion for pets at the annual Pets in the Park event on Saturday May 30.

Rockhampton Regional Council's Health and Compliance Committee Chair Councillor Ellen Smith said the event was a chance for the Region's pet-related industry to showcase their wares.

"Pets in the Park is a wonderful opportunity for our local pet businesses to come along, hold a stall and showcase their passion for pets!" Cr Smith said.

"We're really encouraging local vets to set up a stall, give a quick animal check for example, or some general advice on common pet conditions and illnesses.

"Other businesses, such as pet groomers, and pet clothes, blanket or treat makers, are also welcome to set up a stall and give some demonstrations, interactive displays or tips.

"Council's 2014 event attracted more than 500 people so it really is a great way for our local businesses to gain more exposure and increase their trade in the community."

Council, in partnership with Capricorn Vet Surgery, will provide subsidised microchipping with the RSCPA Education Mobile Unit also at the event.

Stall holders to date include Rockhampton RSPCA, Capricorn Animal Aid, Wags and Whiskers, Pawtraits of Purrfection, PETstock and Petbarn.   

If you run a pet-related business and would like to participate please email communications@rrc.qld.gov.au or call 4936 8039 for more information.
