|The annual Stanley Plaza PAWS by the Sea organised by The Link Management Limited (“The Link”) returns this December, following its overwhelming success last year. The event brings dog owners and their beloved pets together for two weekends of fun activities from 1 December to 9 December. Highlights of the event include treasure hunt game, sports day event and carnival booths. This year, Stanley Plaza will also attempt to set another Guinness World Record for Most People Brushing Dogs Teeth Simultaneously.
Weekend delights for dogs and owners
This year’s PAWS by the Sea aims to promote a healthy and hygienic lifestyle for dogs and their owners with a variety of activities. In partnership with Hong Kong Dog Rescue, the event will host a Doggie Treasure Hunt and Dogaroo x Stanley Plaza Doggie Sports Day on the first weekend, giving dogs the opportunity to enjoy fun challenges while exercising.
On the second weekend, The Link invites participants to attempt a new Guinness World Record for Most People Brushing Dogs Teeth Simultaneously by brushing their dogs’ teeth for 3 minutes. Judges for the Best Dressed Dog Contest will also name a winner from among the dogs at the event.
During the two weeks of PAWS by the Sea 2012, Stanley Plaza will also host fun and informative dog-themed booths for visitors, offering dog adoption services, games, professional photo shoots and vet consultations, as well as grooming, feeding and communication tips for dog owners.
Blissful rides aboard the Charity Doggie Bus
For the convenience of visitors and their pet dogs, The Link has partnered with 99bus HK to introduce the Stanley Plaza Charity Doggie Bus, the first pet bus route on Hong Kong Island, with stops in Mong Kok, Admiralty and Stanley. Please feel free to donate HK$20 (per person/dog) to Hong Kong Dog Rescue volunteers with donation box and travel on the Stanley Plaza Charity Doggie Bus. All proceeds go towards HKDR.
Ms Hilda Wong, Head of Marketing of The Link, said, “The Link has put a lot of effort into creating a free and fun space for dog lovers and their pet dogs, which is not commonly found in the city. As this will be the first anniversary of Stanley Plaza’s renovation and reopening, we hope to further promote the shopping centre as Hong Kong’s first dog-friendly shopping centre through this series of activities that promises to bring joy and spread the message of caring about pets.”
