Dogs and dog lovers from across the Macedon Ranges will gather in Gisborne on Sunday for the annual Paws in the Park fundraiser.

As in recent years, hundreds of locals and their four-legged friends are expected to participate in the fun to promote correct pet health.

More than $27,000 has been raised for local foundations from the past 10 Gisborne Veterinary Clinic’s Paws in the Park events.

This year, the event will raise money for the Macedon Ranges Wildlife Network and Gisborne Pony Club and Adult Riding Club.

Paws in the Park participants will walk from Gisborne Veterinary Clinic to Macedon Ranges council’s Gisborne offices where there will be a sausage sizzle, face-painting, a raffle and petting zoo. A Show and Shine will feature vintage and classic cars and motorbikes.

Pooches will be able to have their teeth checked and nails trimmed for a gold coin donation.

The event costs $10 or $25 for a family of three or more. Participants can register before the event by phoning 5428 2805 or register from 9am on the day.

The event will start at 10am on Sunday, October 29, at 12 Robertson Street, Gisborne.
