Can I have a drum roll please? Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, dogs and puppies... we're less than a month away till this year's Paws at the Park! Yes, you heard right - due to popular demand, last year's extremely successful first and only dog market on the Gold Coast is being held again, only this time, it's even bigger and even better. And with over 3000 people and their pups in attendance last year, that's saying a lot! Who's ready to join us for a fun-filled doggy day out for the whole family?

This year's event is held at the Mudgeeraba Showgrounds on Saturday 5th August 2017. It kicks off at 9am for 4 whole hours of lots of fun and doggy madness. Entry is free, but perhaps best of all, Paws at the Park is raising vital funds for AWLQ, a charity founded on the Gold Coast in 1959 with the core mission of rehoming abandoned and surrendered companion animals. Across the four rehoming centres in South East Queensland, AWLQ cares for up to 17,500 animals each year, with a zero euthanasia policy on all healthy, treatable, and sociable animals; giving them the best possible chance of finding a forever home and of course, having a second chance at life. You'll be making a difference simply by coming along to Paws at the Park and having a good time!

Paws at the Park was created and organised by local small business owners Jenna of Doggie Tea and Lia of oodle&co - in addition to being business owner, they are also avid dog lovers and parents. As such, they know exactly what is needed for both dogs and their humans to have the best day out! In addition to a whole heap of fun, Paws at the Park is a great way for us to support our local small business owners, with a large range of dog catered businesses ready to showcase their unique products and services on the day. Fun fact - did you know that if each of us spent $100 more per year on local businesses instead of chain stores, it would put an extra $3 million a year into our economy, in addition to create thousands more jobs each year?
