Thumbs up Cutie Pet Fair - Nov 21-22, 2009

Dear Members,



Event: Cutie Pet Fair
Location: Central Park, 1 Utama Shopping Mall
Date: November 21 & 22, 2009 (Saturday & Sunday)
Time: 10am - 6pm

Organized by Petster Magazine, Cutie Pet Fair 2009 (formerly known as Home A Pet) is one of the largest pet adoption drives with the participation of major pet-related NGOs. There will be over 50 exhibitor booths, and you can even bring along your pets and take part in lots of fun challenges!


PetFinder.my will be participating in the event, and we would like to seek the assistance of volunteers to help out on both days.

Our activities are pretty simple, basically the showcasing of our website's list of pets for adoption via computers, and pets from our certified rescuers that can be adopted on the spot. We will also be providing SPCA and PAWS with our PetFinder vouchers so that adopters for their pets would receive a 50% discount on the spot (up to RM50), subsidized by PetFinder.

################################################## ################<

[ Post-Event Update ]

Our 2-day event has completed successfully. The skies had occasional drizzles and a heavy downpour on Saturday evening, but overall the weather was fine and we managed to promote our adoption cause to many visitors. We have successfully rehomed 6 dogs and 4 cats - a very happy achievement indeed!

I would like to sincerely thank all the volunteers for their extreme dedication and tireless help that made this event possible:

Hun Beng - Very hardworking, one of the earliest to arrive and latest to leave, and generously offering his laptop with wireless broadband connection

Mun - Extremely helpful and dedicated, especially in looking after all the puppies and showcasing them to the visitors

Khairul - Our professional marketer explaining the website to visitors. Also doubled as a model holding big signboards walking around the park.

Hiba - The creative genius who created all the eye-grabbing signboards which successfully drew crowd attention. Very good at handling the puppies who adore her.

Naj - A very enthusiastic and dedicated girl that not only looked after the animals, but attractively pitched our service and pets to the crowd

Alice Lim - Tirelessly transporting the animals to and fro, setting up the cages and handling the adoptions. My deepest respect to this amazing lady.

Juliana - Carnea's friend, who brought some cute puppies for adoption and helped promote adoption awareness to visitors

Sarah & Uzairi - Very dedicated, distributing our brochures to the farthest corners of the park, and attending to the visitor enquiries.

Erma - Very friendly and helpful, assisting our team with distributing brochures and showcasing the website.

Jacqueline - A very knowledgeable person, giving excellent advise to adopters and bringing more dogs to our booth for adoption.

Monkee94 & Bryan - A big thanks for dropping by to help out even when you guys were very busy.

Shan Hui - Our dedicated PR person who promoted PetFinder to every single booth and company at the event, and helping me load the equipment and drive me home after my legs were completely wasted from the Penang Marathon

Catherine, Colina, Lina, Thomas, Charles - A very helpful group of friends that assisted in promoting PetFinder at the park

Everyone else (Sorry, please let me know if I missed out any names) - thanks for helping us promote the event, pay us a visit and doing your part in helping these homeless animals!


Below are event photos I took, hope that it would give our volunteers some wonderful memories to cherish, and to share our happiness with the rest. If you have any additional photos, please feel free to upload them here as well!

Kids were seen nagging their parents to adopt the cute pets


Another happy, success story at our booth


This couple literally spent hours at our booth trying to decide whether to adopt Kitten #1 or #2! Luckily, they finally made up their mind.

Visitors crowding around booths giving away freebies

Hi Khairul,

Thank you so much for kindly volunteering for both days! Really good to meet up with you again for the event. You'd be the key person at our booth as you are most experienced and can converse very well in both English and BM


Hi Abuldotcom,

No worries, our volunteers won't really need to handle pets as our focus is in introducing visitors to the pets at our website via computers, and distribution of brochures.


To Irena & Other Volunteers,

Please state which day(s) and hours you would be available, and I will compile them into a finalized schedule, thanks. The date and time of the event are as stated at my first post.

Dear All,

Thank you for your kind volunteering. I have compiled the list of volunteers' names here and suggested timings.

[ Please refer to 1st Post at top of page for volunteers and schedule ]

Most of you are placed on 4-hour shifts for both days. Please let me know if you need to change the day/time. You are welcome to help out the entire day as well if you are available.

Please confirm your timings, and PM me your full details - name, email and mobile number so I can send you more information for the event. (Don't post these private information directly in this thread)


To Khairul,

Can you please be in charge of the booth on Sunday, as I can only make it on Sunday afternoon - gotta make a trip to Penang on Saturday evening and rush back on Sunday morning.. Thanks bro!

Once again, a big thank you to all the kind volunteers!
