Melbourne Pet & Animal Expo

Those of you who follow Ragamuffin Pet Photography on Facebook will have noticed that I have recently added Maneki Neko Cat Rescue to my list of rescue groups and organisations that I regularly volunteer and fundraise for. Maneki Neko is a new rescue, established in October 2012 by Samantha and Carl. This wonderful couple have an infectious passion for their determination to rehome orphaned cats. They have a gorgeous furry family of their own and they are constantly opening their heart and their home to cats in need.

Which brings me to this weekend! The Melbourne Pet & Animal Expo is held this Saturday and Sunday, the 2nd-3rd of February from 10am to 5pm daily. It's Australia's biggest pet event and this year there is more entertainment and features than ever before! Ragamuffin Pet Photography will be there volunteering for Maneki Neko and donating a beautiful display for their booth. We are at stand 196, which is directly opposite the Cat Breed Showcase and Dog Demonstration area.

Our booth will be selling awesome showbags for $20 and $25 each, cute mugs, yummy cat-themed biscuits and Catnip and Cat grass plants. And that's not all!

Exclusive Offer for all Expo Bookings

I will also be sharing an exclusive offer for all expo bookings, including a donation to Maneki Neko for every session booked!  So swing by the booth for a chance to buy a gift voucher or book your furkids in for their very own Ragamuffin Session AND fundraise at the same time! How awesome is that?!
