What is 'Pet Tales'?

The 'Pet Tales' series is a great chance for supporters of our organisation to see the impact their ongoing support could have on animals within the Canberra community. Attendees will also be treated to hear from a special guest who will speak about their love of animals and the impact they have, not only on their lives but the lives around them. This is a great opportunity to see a different side to many local well-known Canberrans. We are excited to announce the speaker for our next event as Dennis Richardson AO who is currently the Secretary of Defence.   

The atmosphere at a 'Pet Tales' event is laid back and fun, with attendees enjoying a delicious breakfast and while interacting with other like-minded individuals. At the breakfast there will also be a chance for attendees to have the wonderful opportunity to meet some of the animals they are supporting. Yes, you guessed it...CUDDLE TIME!!!  

All tickets include a delicious breakfast, coffee, tea and juice.
