The Pets at the Gabba Markets are the first markets in Brisbane devoted to pets, celebrating Brisbane’s vibrant community of doggos, kitties and everything in between.
Event managers Lia Onorati and Renee Cutting say the market showcases the best pet products and services available locally and nationally, catering to all types of pets, while also raising much-needed funds for pet charities.
Each month, a different charity will be selected to receive part of the stall cost as a donation. In addition to this, there’ll be raffles every week (with prizes donated by stall holders and other companies in the pet industry), with the designated charity of the month to receive all proceeds. The first charity of the month will be RSPCA Queensland who will be there along with World for Pets, School for Dogs and PetCloud.
