Seoul hosts “Fall Picnic with Dogs”
Come enjoy a fall picnic with family, friends, and lovers while walking your dogs at the World Cup Park on two Saturdays, October 13th and 20th, and enjoy breathing in the scent of autumn. This event will feature 10 abandoned dogs that have been listed as ▲abandoned · lost pets, ▲abandoned animals that received emergency treatment after being rescued by the city of Seoul and ▲pets under urgent care by the deaths of their guardians at Seoul Animal Care Center.
At this event, a part of Seoul’s “abandoned animal adoption cultural event”, citizens who are not ready to adopt, but want to spend time with animals will be given the opportunity to do so through a walk in the park.
Citizens who want to participate in the “Fall Picnic with Dogs” event can register online at Seoul Reservation for Public service website (http://yeyak.seoul.go.kr). Residents can register alone or with family members, friends, and lovers. Minors must be accompanied by a guardian. To ensure adequate rest for animals, there will be two scheduled sessions on both the 13th and 20th at 13:00 and 15:00. Six teams per session, total of 24 teams, will be accepted on a first come, first served basis.
This event on the 13th and the 20th at the World Cup Dog Park will have volunteers who will guide and accompany each team for the safety of all participants. Participating residents may also receive Polaroid service with the autumn park scenery as the background to treasure their memories with the dogs.
In addition to the walks, an “adoption event” will be held at the World Cup Dog Park from noon to 4 p.m. Citizens who did not take part in walking dogs can also visit the Dog Park to meet abandoned dogs waiting to be taken home to their new families.
