The venue along the road leading to the Bangalore airport turned into a pet lovers’ paradise on February 19 where the city’s biggest canine fest, ‘Happy Dog Carnival 2017’ at Embassy Springs was hosted. Dogs of various breeds took part in a fashion show and a 2.5K run with their owners. The event was organised by property developer Embassy Group.
Besides the 2.5K Run, the carnival had several fun-filled activities that included games, photo booths, acoustic live music, food trucks, flea market, cocktail lounge, stalls for dog grooming, training, necessities and accessories among others. There was acoustic music for pets, that wasn’t harsh. Hundreds of people participated and over 100 dogs took part in the run.
The proceeds from the event went to CARE (Charlie Animal Rescue Centre), Jakkur. Sudha Narayanan, Co-Founder, CARE said, “We sustain because of generous public donations. This is a great way for us to spread awareness about our centre and raise funds for a good cause. We started four years ago with the purpose of helping stray and abandoned animals, where they could be housed, treated, rehabilitated and re-homed.”
On organising the event, Reeza Sebastian Karimpanal, Vice President – Residential Marketing & Sales, Embassy Group said, “The idea behind the carnival is to bring families together. We are promoting our project as pet-friendly and this is the best way to do it-by getting families along with their pets under one roof and do fun activities together. We are very pleased about the funds raised being donated to C.A.R.E and Haven Animal Welfare.”
