Reigning Cats and Dogs

Last weekend we celebrated Reigning Cats & Dogs, a weekend festival celebrating the joys of cat and dog ownership.

Celebrating World Animal Day, the festival was held at Bicentennial Park, Glebe Foreshore on October 4 & 5. Consisting of two separate events – Rescue Me and the International Cat Film Furstival.

At Rescue Me, our massive dog adoption day, we joined with 13 other rescue groups to find furever homes for as many shelter and rescue dogs as possible. We saw 31 dogs go to new homes and another 91 meeting their new families at followups.

The Cat Film Furstival, an Australian first, saw crazy cat ladies and cat enthusiasts come together for their love of the fine feline. Over 1,900 people joined in the furstival fun, with cattoos, face painting, food and fun.
