Pet World 2013 at MidValley Mall!

Day One

Connie and I arrived at 8.15am and Joy was already there waiting for us. Being a Friday, it was hard to get volunteers, luckily Joy volunteered.

This year, we had a nice booth.

We would like to thank the organisers again for giving us a free booth to promote our work and share our cause.

We were opposite Avant Pet. This year, they were introducing their new food, Merrick and also the much-awaited Primal Freeze-Dried, which wasn’t supposed to be sold yet, but the demand was so good, they decided to sell it at the fair!

The highlight of the day for us is…

Lester and Tracy arrived after school and set up their little table to sell their badges.

For the young and trendy Gen-Y crowd.

Friday’s crowd was the expected moderate crowd.

But…we sold out all our soaps by afternoon!

We had time to browse and managed to get some good buys for our pets.

Day Two

The drive to MidValley Mall today, being Saturday, was a breeze. No jam at all.

And…we have a surprise visit from a very, very special guest!

It’s Oreo Bartholomeow Balestorm!!

So very kind of his family to bring him to visit.

Hi, Oreo!!!! ┬áIt’s so nice to finally meet you and your family!

mini-CIMG6373

Tracy joined us later in the evening.

mini-CIMG6384

This Filipino couple came to say hello. We helped subsidised the neutering of two dogs whom they had adopted.

Another lady stopped by to say how much the book “Do We have a Choice” had changed her life for the better. She feels empathy and compassion for the stray animals now, and having abstained from eating meat for two meals per day, her skin problem has miraculously disappeared! Several other people also stopped to tell me about how some of my books had impacted favourably on them. Many were blog readers who came over to say hello and introduce themselves. It’s really nice to put a face to their names now when we next write emails.

Another doggie visitor.

The latest hotcakes on the market!

The organiser suddenly extended the closing time to 9.45pm, so we stayed behind longer than yesterday.

It was a great day for sales and donations – thank you for visiting, everyone.

Tomorrow will be Day 3!

DAY THREE

Today, it’s just Connie and me.

mini-CIMG6455

Today was the busiest day.

mini-CIMG6454

It was almost a mob at the entrance as the day wore on.

mini-CIMG6457

Our buntings did the education bit too.

mini-CIMG6438

How sweet! This little boy insisted that his mum also wore her AnimalCare tshirt!

Photography time and the star is a canine friend!

mini-CIMG6441

I’m waiting for this new catfood to arrive. It’s expected so in a few weeks’ time.
It’s holistic, wholesome and best of all – very palatable!

mini-CIMG6460

Our last visitors for the day were from Kulai, Johor! Their mum is a blog reader. They took many books back to give to their friends and their school library.

It’s been a very tiring three days but it was well-spent meeting up and speaking with so many people, sharing our cause and our work. There were those who already know what we do, and those who have not heard about our subsidies before but were glad we have such a service as they are ardent feeders and rescuers of stray animals. This gives us more opportunities to reach out further and help more caregivers.

We wish to thank the organisers of Pet World 2013, for giving us a free booth this year and thus giving us this wonderful opportunity to share what we do with so many visitors.

Thank you, everyone, for visiting us and supporting our cause!
