THOUSANDS of paws are set to hit the park in North Perth next weekend.

WA Pet Project (WAPP) is taking over Woodville Reserve for the third PetFest, with over 50 stall-holders, food trucks, talks, activities and more to entertain every human and their furry friend.

WAPP president Michele O’Neill said there would be an enclosed feline enrichment area for owners to pick up ideas for their cats’ home environment, and a dog sensory garden.

“We’ll have examples of activities that pet owners can provide for their dogs and teach them how to keep their minds working,” she said.

The event will also act as a birthday celebration for the group, which is based all over the metropolitan area.

The volunteers offer pet-rehoming and an adoption program for cats and dogs, along with a ‘spay it forward’ program to assist low-income pet owners with desexing and microchipping.

PetFest 2019 takes place at Woodville Reserve in North Perth on Sunday, April 14, from 9am to 1pm.
