Animal lovers can show their support later this month at a fun Pet Expo being held at the Deloraine Cattery – and meet Pascal West (Siobhan Marshall) from the cult TV show Outrageous Fortune.

She is throwing her support behind the event on November 26 and anyone who wants to dine with her that night at Spilt Bar & Restaurant can bid for the honour at a charity auction.

Organiser Rachael Seymour says she decided to host the event to highlight animal cruelty and give the Whangarei SPCA a pat on the back for the amazing job they do.

Entry is by gold coin donation with proceeds going directly to the local SPCA, which relies heavily on public donations.

Rachael says she has been overwhelmed with the response from businesses with many donating numerous services including major sponsors More FM.

An array of activities have been planned including bouncy castles, face painting and a vege pet competition for the kids – with the winner taking home a digital camera from 100% Barrell’s.

There is also live musical entertainment, raffles, charity auctions and numerous stalls.

No Pet Expo can be complete without some furry friends and you won’t be disappointed with bunny rabbits, guinea pigs, ponies and turtles to name a few.

Rocky Bay Alpacas owner Kathy Bloom is taking a few of these amazing creatures as well for people to admire.

Date: November 26. Time: 10am – 4pm. Location: Deloraine Cattery 50 Konini Street, Whangarei.
