Where to go with your dog this August
Dog owners and jazz lovers, rejoice! The popular Jazz for Dogs event is back again for a second time this 18th August 2019, and it’s the perfect opportunity to relax and recharge before the start of a new week with your pup and loved ones amidst lush greenery, cool evening breeze, snazzy tunes, and good food.
Held at the Singapore Botanic Gardens once more, it promises a bigger and better lineup of local jazz artistes such as sultry songstresses Anne Weerapass and Carol Gomez, powerhouses Lily Hargrove and Skye Sirena, globally renowned Rob Collins, Aaron Lee’s Jazz Quartet, and many more.
You can bring some snacks from home to add on to your picnic feast too!
There are also picnic baskets that you can pre-order at just $88 nett (worth $200) so that all you have to do is to simply turn up for the event! Enough to fill 2 people, goodies inside include wine, drinks, savoury snacks like hearty sandwiches from The Tea Party, sweets such as cakes from The White Ombré and muffins from Gulalicious, and redeemable goodies from Shake Shack Singapore.
That’s not all either – the basket will also come with a limited-edition Jazz for Dogs picnic mat, adorable Shake Shack Singapore bandana for your furry friend, and non-perishable items from Cool Gear International, Pinkk Pet Care, Pet Lovers Centre Singapore, Silversky Pet Care, and B2K Pet Care Singapore!
Pooh Bear and Posh Posh, two adopted puppies from ASD.
By purchasing a picnic basket, you’ll be contributing to Action for Singapore Dogs Society’s fundraiser for their nationwide TNRM (Trap-Neuter-Release-Manage) programme, which aims to humanely reduce the stray dog population in Singapore and ensure that every dog has a warm place to call home. Typically, the expenditure for a single TNRM dog can amount to $350 or more, which mainly goes to transportation, trapping equipment, and medical treatment and boarding if they are sick or injured. Only limited picnic baskets are available and they’re selling fast, so hurry and place your order here!
Pawrents can also pre-order human-grade home-cooked meals (Beef & Sweet Potato or Pork & Broccoli) for your furkids from Furry’s Kitchen at $10 per portion when purchasing a picnic basket. If you’re craving for a cold treat, artisanal ice cream from Dancing Elephant Ice Cream Co will be for sale at the event as well.
With over 1800 people and at least 300 dogs present at 2017’s event, you can be sure that this year’s will be just as – if not more – full of life and fun happenings!
