We finally made it to PAWDAY 2013, which is organized by Jakarta Animal Aid Network or JAAN every year to raise funds for JAAN’s animal aid activities. We dropped by at the tail end because DiploDog is not really socialized yet and we were also tired from Part 1 of our Drink-Our-Booze party the night before. We came at the perfect time, there were still some dogs, but not too much to overwhelm DiploDog. Pictures of the beautiful park and super cute dogs that we saw after the jump!
From Pawday 2011:
Socializing a dog is important and as there are not many “dog parks” in Jakarta, JAAN’s PawDay Dog Walk offered a rare opportunity for dogs and owners to get together.
The JAAN PawDay event raised much needed funds for JAAN’s ongoing programs: rescuing pet dogs, stray cat sterilizations, and wildlife protection. JAAN also is working to end the cruel Topeng Monyet Industry and improving the health of carriage horses in Indonesia.
In the past years, JAAN has re-homed hundreds of pet dogs, sterilized 1500+ stray cats and dogs, and rescued endangered Brahminy Kites, Sea Turtles, abused Dolphins and primates.
Activities for Pawday 2013:
- A Guided Dog Walk through the Park at Kebayoran Baru’s Taman Langsat
- International Food Restaurants
- Vendors Selling Interesting Merchandise
- Games for Dogs
- Our Super Duper Raffle-grand prize Samsung Galaxy Tab 2
- And an Opportunity to Enjoy a Day in the Park with your Family and Friends
- 8:00 am-1:00 pm
There were also dogs up for adoption, if you love animals and want to look for a dog to adopt this is definitely an event to watch out for. Sadly there are many dogs in Jakarta, from mutts to purebreds that are abandoned, abused or live in unacceptable conditions. Recently we know a lady who found a yorkie-mix that placed in a trashbag that was tied close and thrown in a trash can to die. Who would do such a thing? Place a dog in a plastic bag to suffocate and die? Wow. The owner could have just dropped the dog off in JAAN. There is no need for such cruelty.
This poor pup was just all tuckered out and fast asleep, oblivious to all the activity around him. Cute!
There were many more cute dogs and I took so many pictures. If you wanna see all the photos of the park and of Pawday 2013 click here!
It was a really amazing event and we are glad we got to drop by and meet so many cuties! If you are interested in getting a dog, please do adopt one instead of buying from breeders. JAAN has many dogs (and cats) that need a good home!
