Nat Geo Channel’s FREE PET SHOP: Free dogs this weekend. Please adopt responsibly.

17 February, 2012

There’s a saying I always say – “Properly trained, a man can be dog’s best friend.” (Reference quote from Corey Ford.)

It’s funny yet true, I can’t live without my Jack Russell Terror… but the reality is he lives for us too.

There are so many dogs right now (and counting) without a home. I can’t imagine all of them being abandoned or even being in danger. If you want one, please go to the Free Pet Shop that Nat Geo Channel is running THIS WEEKEND.

DATE: 18th Feb 2012 (Sat) & 19th Feb 2012 (Sun)

TIME: 12nn – 6pm

VENUE: Dalbergia Green, East Coast Park

Never heard of anything like it.. The NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC CHANNEL FREE PET SHOP does sound kind of cool. It’s a first-of-its-kind campaign led by the National Geographic Channel (NGC) to advocate dog adoption and to highlights efforts in saving abandoned dogs. NGC has teamed up with 4 local dog shelters, Action for Singapore Dogs (ASD), Animal Lovers League (ALL), Gentle Paws and Noah’s Ark, to form the LARGEST DOG-ADOPTION DRIVE in Singapore to date where up to 80 dogs will be up for adoption.

In addition, the event will see a slew of fun-filled activities for both dog owners and their dogs to enjoy, including:

– Demonstrations by dog groomers,

– Talks by obedience trainers,

– Doggy Massage sessions,

– Samplings by a dog bakery, pet food companies,

– Owner and dog portraits by professional pet photographers,

– And, a special first-of-its-kind “Singapore Special Dog Show”, featuring only mixed-breeds.

Ready for responsibility? Try adopting a pet! You’ll be surprised that you’ll need it as much as it needs you.

The only thing my brother in London misses about home is actually our dog.
