Scores of animal adopters and their furry friends will gather at Bonython Park this weekend in a bid to set a world record for the largest reunion of adopted shelter animals.

The Animal Welfare League (AWL) is holding its first Animal Reunion on Sunday to rejoice shelter animals and their owners, while also attempting a Guinness World Record. Entertainment on Sunday will include pet information stalls, face painting, dog grooming, food and drinks, animal behavior shows and a police dog demonstration.

AWL state communications officer Brenda Champion says the reunion aims to highlight what it means to adopt a lost or abandoned animal from a shelter and give them a second chance.“We want people to bring their pets, even if they didn’t adopt from us,” Ms Champion says.

“It’s about celebrating owning a pet and adopting from a shelter.”

Animal Reunion, Bonython Park, October 10, from 9am. All money raised on the day will help the AWL care for animals now in the shelter.
