After the success of Pet Festival Philippines last year, Parkmall decided to do it again. Cebu’s only pet-loving mall will celebrate the country’s biggest pet gathering on May 11-14, 2017. Expect to see different kinds of pets in various activities and exhibits. All the pet clubs, the leading pet shops, and animal welfare organizations joining the festival makes this the most diverse assembly of its kind in the Philippines.
Here’s what you need to know about the highly anticipated event for the pet-loving community:
Animal Welfare and Responsible Pet Ownership Panel Discussion
Parkmall is proud to be Cebu’s pet-friendly mall and has been a staunch advocate of animal welfare and responsible pet ownership. In line with this, the mall will be hosting a panel discussion educating the public on proper treatment of pets. The discussion will have representatives from the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, Department of Agriculture, Island Rescue Organization (IRO), and Animal Wellness Veterinary Clinic. This insightful dialogue will mark the official start of the festival on May 12 at 2PM.
Pet clubs’ reunion
Most of us think of pets as dogs, but the pet kingdom has a vast and diverse population. Parkmall understands that and welcomes all kinds of pet animals. Expect to see dogs, cats, birds, chickens, hamsters, fishes, and even reptiles in their own booths. The Pet Festival Philippines is the only time when they all converge to join the competitions and enjoy the exhibits. You may be able to meet and buy the pet you’ve always wanted. Pet club booths will be open by May 11.
Two pet clubs will be holding informative talks about their dear pals. Make sure to catch talks by the United Betta Enthusiasts Cebu on May 11 at 5PM, and the United Hamster Aficionados of Cebu on May 13 at 1PM.
Exciting competitions for pets
Parkmall’s Pet Festival Philippines remains unrivaled because of the roster of fun activities that all pet lovers can enjoy like exciting competitions that only Parkmall can pull off.
Pawshionista, Cebu’s first and most fabulous fashion competition for pets, returns with two categories: one for dogs and another for cats. This year’s theme is Summer in Bloom, participating pets will strut the runway in their floral summer wear on May 13.
The Great Pet Adventure Race is Cebu’s first race challenge for dogs and their humans. Teams of three dog and human pairs compete to accomplish tasks in different stations around the mall in the shortest time possible.
And many more activities. Parkmall is co-organizing the 1st Cebu Dog Road Run together with the K9 CARE (Cebu Agility Run Enthusiast) Dog Sport, and the 1st Royal Canin Dog Sport Challenge, three days of competitions for dogs which include the 6th Cebu Dog Sport National Competition and the 2nd Dog Agility Championship.

Pets are the best! It’s impossible to walk into Pet Festival Philippines without bumping into a cute pet.
