In many ways, the purr-fect day out. Sorry.

Taking place on Smithfield Square on Sunday 29 April from 11:30am - 4:30pm; the family-friendly bash invites dogs to take part in special agility workshops and the Scruffs Dog Show.

A range of dedicated stalls with offer deals on a variety of pet accessories, grooming products, toys and novelty items.

The Dublin Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, meanwhile, will be on hand to provide services such as micro-chipping as well as dispensing valuable pet health advice.

More than just cats and dogs, Pets in the City will also boast an exotic animal area, a reptile corner and an animal farm for visitors to interact with.


Speaking at the launch on Monday, Lord Mayor of Dublin Mícheál MacDonncha hailed the upcoming spectacular:

“This event is the perfect opportunity for the entire family, and their pets, to enjoy a day out in the centre of Dublin City," he said.
