Quirino Grandstand was definitely jam-packed! Filled with almost 500 fur babies, pets shed fur and excitement all around. With PAWS as their main beneficiary, this sporting event aimed to help stray animals who remained caged in shelters. Veterinarians Dr. Adelaida Suller and Dr. Froilan Calip conducted free check-ups to fur babies present at the event while giving away free Supercoat from Purina Philippines.
As every race category prepares to do their runs, they were invited to a Zumba warm-up lead by Coaches Johnrev Sayson Binondo and Paolo Domingo from Anytime Fitness.
Pet Fashion Gala
Pets also came up on stage as they strut their stuff in a fashion show. Although not all participants won, they all received packets of Supercoat from Purina Philippines. Daschund Basha dressed up as a mini Santa Claus, ready to give delightful gifts to nice kids and cold coals to naughty ones.
Mini Pomeranian mother-and-daughter duo Chow and Cinnamon, along with Shih Tzu Coco, dressed up as mini dinosaurs. Shih Tzu Oreo dressed as a butterfly ready to dazzle the judges and fly away. Shih Tzu twins Yumi and Curtis, dressed in their winter jackets ran up and down the stage as they accompany their adolescent owner. Meanwhile, the only muse Persian Kitten Snow just sat in the middle of the stage, unbothered by everyone’s antics.
