From canines that have gone above and beyond to keep our country safe, to dozens of dogs available for adoption from rescue groups across NSW, dog loving visitors won’t want to miss the CANIDAE Rescue Dog Zone, which provides a chance to meet dogs from a wide array of shelters and rescue groups from around NSW who are desperate to find safe, loving homes. Visitors will also have access to experts who can discuss rescue and what’s involved, whether it suits your lifestyle and how you can actually start the process of adoption if you fall in love with the perfect pooch.
