Take your dog for a date this weekend and raise money for a good cause at the same time.
Reflections Holiday Park in Moonee Beach will hold Doggy Date night on Saturday 15 September. All money raised will go towards the Coffs Harbour RSPCA.
Park Manager Kelly Shaw said the ‘Doggy Date Night’ event had already received a positive response from the community and the park was looking forward to dog lovers and families with dogs of all shapes and sizes to come and join the festivities.
You don't need a dog to join in the fun.
“We are starting with a walk up to the headlands from the park and then returning for a fun sausage sizzle, face painting, a giant inflatable slide for the kids and an open-air cinema showing, Secret Life of Pets,” Kelly says.
Fresh popcorn will be available for a gold coin donation. Guests can also win a luck door price and purchase tickets in the RSPCA raffle.
Local food vendors will provide sustenance for humans and dogs.
“My two mini schnauzers, Penny and Leonard are looking forward to sharing some yummy ‘pupperoni’ slices with me," Kelly says.
RSPCA NSW Senior Manager Eliza Walker said families and dog lovers would enjoy a great evening while supporting an important service at Coffs Harbour.
“RSPCA NSW offers shelter, medical attention and love to animals of all shapes and sizes, as well as supporting community members in caring for their pets,” Ms Walker said.
“RSPCA NSW is a charity and receives only 2% of its funding from the government – the ongoing support of local animal lovers is essential in allowing us to continue our work. Doggy Date Night is a fun community initiative which will help raise those much-needed funds.”
Reflections Holiday Park Moonee is a pet-friendly park, with 28 dog-friendly cabins.
Moonee Beach, north of Coffs Harbour is a wonderful place for families and pets. Kids and dogs love splashing in the clear shallow water of Moone estuary. Make sure you bring a yabby pump. You will find bucket loads of the creatures underneath the sand. They make great fishing bait. Kelly urged people to get in quick and book accommodation for the weekend.
“We still have a dog-friendly cabin available and plenty of bush camping so give us a call and stay for what promises to be a great community event,” Kelly says.
