Responsible pet owner understands the importance of providing their furry pals with the best care and quality time. As a supporter of both causes, the company opened their first event by serving as a source for superior canine care.
Free inside booths offering a variety of canine services were constructed to accommodate the pet participants, as pawfectly made by Doggo. Included in this activity are the following: the Clinic, where dogs received free checkups from veterinarians, the Insurance, which offered free insurance to protect them in case of emergencies, and the Photobooth, which offered free and limitless pictures so that pet parents could immortalize their special date with the furry kids.
It's also gratifying to welcome a new furry family member into your house, and thanks to Doggo and PAWSsion Project, an adoption drive was organized at the event. Doggo frequently partners with PAWSsion Project, a nonprofit dog rescue and rehabilitation group that was virtually simultaneously founded as Doggo in order to raise awareness of the realities of strays in the nation and increase adoption rates. At the occasion, Doggo served as a matchmaker for stray dogs and 15 stray dogs can find new homes with the aid of dog lovers. And just like any other parties, goodies and merchandise were also up for grabs which were made possible in partnership with participating brands, Amazon Pumps and Purreetty.
For the tail-wagging-worthy highlights, the canine companions proved to be more than just pets as witnessed at the event’s competition segment. Showcasing their talents, it was cuteness overload at the Trick and Treat Booth as dogs exhibited their learned tricks where they got rewarded with a pack of treats. The Doggo Marathon brought the whole pack howling as they got to do what they love most – running. The track was intentionally designed to be unbarricaded to encourage a deeper connection between dogs and their owners. Each doggo marathoner dashed at their fastest pace while being timed, and the one with the shortest time recorded was pronounced the winner. A speedy Shih Tzu named ‘Panpan’ won the race against 200 other dogs with a record of less than three seconds, bagging a prize money of P10, 000.
Sealing the fun, dancing dog mascots, as well as internet-famous fur pets and parents such as Jack and the Balbons, Pamilya Balbons, Kier Bear, Baby Ginger, and Bogart & Betchay, also made it to the barking bash.
Kurt Cheng, Doggo’s CEO, launched the brand in 2019 with the purpose of delivering premium dog supplies and services for fur families. As an active advocate for bringing man’s best friend and their needs closer and more available, Cheng beams on the real essence behind organizing the Doggo Pawty.
“We did not want to make an event just for the sake of throwing one. It was important for us to launch it as a way of communicating and promoting better treatment for dogs – to consider them as a part of the family and not just as house guards or displays.”
Seeing the successful turnaround, Cheng sees the possibility of hosting the Doggo Pawty annually with aspirations of bringing fur families closer together and paving the way for more accessibility to top-class dog care, services, and products.
Through Doggo, hopefully, more exciting events await these pawesome pets and parents where they can strengthen their relationships and encourage more owners to do the same.
