Cubao’s commercial hub, Araneta Center officially becomes a pet-friendly destination as it opens its doors to the cutest and fluffiest members of your family.
Araneta Center will now allow owners to bring their pets to the Gateway Mall, Ali Mall, Farmers Plaza, and other parts of the Center, provided that they have secured the Pet Pals ID.
Owners who want to apply for the Pet Pals ID only have to submit the following requirements to the malls’ concierges: original and photocopy of rabies vaccination record, 1×1 colored photos, and Pet Pals ID application form, which is downloadable on www.aranetacenter.net. The ID will be given for free.
A temporary Pet Pals Day Pass IDs will also be available to those who have yet to complete the requirements.
Even with the Pet Pals ID, pet owners are expected to be responsible in bringing their pets around the Center by keeping them on a leash while they are walking, carrying them while riding escalators and elevators, and cleaning after their wastes.
To celebrate this “paw-sitive” development, Araneta Center launched the Pet Pals program with a pet soiree on May 27 at the Gateway Mall Activity Area.
Pet owners and their fur babies were treated to an afternoon of bonding and talk on taking care of pets despite the owners’ busy schedules and on first-aid for pets facilitated by experts Jester Jo Onchuan and Dr. Flori-Ann Buiser. A handful of cute freebies—including leashes for the early birds—were given to the attendees and their pets. The Quezon City Hall Animal Care and Disease Control Division administered free rabies vaccination.
Binibining Pilipinas Supranational Jehza Huelar and Binibining Pilipinas Grand International Eva Patalinjug joined in the fun and shared their fun stories about their own pets.
