The Rotary Bangalore IT Corridor, organized a PET-A-THON to raise money for the helpless and abandoned animals. It was a fun-filled event where pet parents participated with their pets in a half a kilometre walk. This year the theme was “Adopt Don’t Shop”, aimed to inspire people not to buy but to adopt dogs. The main idea was to raise money for the helpless animals. This year the organisers invited a dog behaviourist to talk about behavioural pattern in pets.
A veterinarian Doctor also addressed the gathering talking about common health issues related to pets. The event also witnessed a pet flea market, where dog goodies and accessories were displayed for sale. Pet owners had a chance to buy those accessories for their beloved pets.
Petathon is a curtain raiser for Bengaluru midnight marathon, where they call all the pet parents to participate with their pets. Bangalore Midnight Marathon is scheduled to take place on December 10, 2016, at KTPO, Whitefield, Bangalore.
Shri Vimal Sharma, RBITC Chairman 2016-2017 said “PET-A-THON is an initiative to raise awareness about pet care among the society. We want to raise voice for Pet adoption through this initiative. RBITC is proud to partner with Precious Paws and PetStepin to support pet adoption drive. With the funds raised through Pet-a-thon, RBITC aims to support the organisation to create better infrastructure for foster homes of pet animals.”
