The Diggers Rest pet show will be a celebration of all things four-legged, feathered, furry and fun.

Animal lovers and their pets can learn about pet care services in the area and enjoy the festivities of the annual event.

Awards and prizes will be presented to winners for best dressed, best trick and best behaved, as well as a competition for owners who resemble their pets.

For those who are on the hunt for a fur baby, Melton Pound staff will be telling residents about how to adopt a pet.

Among other highlights, Vision Australia and the Lions Club will give talks on seeing eye dogs and hearing dogs. Melton mayor Sophie Ramsey encouraged pet owners to come along to learn how to better care for their animals.

“There will be so much to learn from Sunbury Veterinary Hospital’s guest talk on first-aid, or Melton Veterinary Hospital’s informative speaker addressing issues of pet dental care,” Cr Ramsey said. “Our local laws officers will also be attending to answer questions about microchipping and registering your pets with Melton council.”

Other activities include dog massage, dog walking and pet care services, dog washes and children’s entertainment.
