The dog days are here again.

You can have a paw-some afternoon with your pooch and make a difference in the fight against cancer this Saturday.

Pets at the Gabba, the markets run by mother-daughter event management team Lia Onorati and Renee Cutting, will raise funds for Cancer Council Queensland with market stalls, music, and even puppicinos at Brisbane’s Biggest Doggy Afternoon Tea.

Ms Onorati, a cancer survivor, says the event is a way for her to give back to the community.

“For a small donation, attendee’s pooches can enjoy a ‘puppicino’ donated by L’Barkery and delicious treats from Bow Wow Chow and Cherry Pies Delights,” she says.

“On the entertainment side, there will be market stalls, great food, music, a jumping castle and henna tattoos.

“There are fantastic raffle prizes up for grabs thanks to the generous support of businesses, including DK Stainless, Dendy Portside, Napolean Perdis, Qi Tea Australia, Two Feet and Four Paws, VetaFarm and more.

“We also have a kissing booth and free goodie bags for when people purchase from two or more vendors.”

While the official Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea date was on Thursday May 25, locals can hold events like this and raise funds anytime throughout May or June.

Brisbane’s Biggest Doggy Afternoon Tea will be held at Pets at the Gabba (73 Ipswich Road, Woolloongabba) this Saturday 24 June from 3pm to 8pm. For more information about hosting your own Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea event, visit
