Dogs, food trucks, kids activities & more = the perfect ingredients for a really great event this weekend

Whether you’ve got a dog, your kids are always hounding you for one (pardon the pun) or you just want them to be able to give a puppy a cuddle, there’s a truly amazing event this weekend that’s guaranteed to be a lot of fun for a very good cause. Doggy boutique Howl & Growl, together with local charities Pare UAE and Al Mayya K9 Adoptions, are putting on a dog-friendly afternoon for every family member (including the furry ones) to enjoy.

This Friday, 11 May between 4pm and 8pm you can take your own pups for a play or simply go along to a lovely few hours of fun as part of a dog adoption day at the Toil & Tinker warehouse space in Al Quoz. Don’t worry, if you can’t adopt or foster a woof it’s not a problem you can just stop by for a canine hug, for the best tacos in town courtesy of maiztacos, for the kids to get stuck into everything from cookie and cupcake decoration to arts & crafts, balloon animals to interactive screen printing on totes and tees plus loads more. There’ll be a lemonade stand for the littles and a Nightjar Coffee Bar for mama (because we always need caffeine, yes?!). And of course, you’ll have the chance to shop for your pooch or your feline friend at Howl  & Growl, Dubai’s only animal boutique.

Yup, this is an event that’s for a good cause and that’ll leave you feeling fuzzy and warm, whether you’re in for adopting a dog or not. And if you are (I’ve got a rescue at home already but am seriously tempted for more...) then there’ll be over 45 dogs of all shapes, sizes and breeds to meet. Want to know more? Here are just a few of them below. Come on, admit it, you want them all?! I certainly do.
