What if we tell you that you could have a fun day out with your pet and also contribute towards their welfare at the same time? The third annual Pet Fed— India’s biggest pet festival— is back with a weekend full of fun filled activities for you and your pet. The annual event which was started by Delhi University alumnus Akshay Gupta not only aims to give visitors a chance to have a blast with their pets and participate in activities but also to be a part of a Guinness World Record attempt.

“I am glad that this year the response that we are receiving has already reached the top-hole. All the pet parents are enthusiastically looking forward to take part and have booked their tickets much in advance. We all are very excited as this year we’re attempting India’s first ever Guinness World record for dogs,” says Gupta. “The festival is expected to have a footfall of over 25,000 people and 3000 pets, and the world record will be attempted for most number of dogs wearing bandanas at the venue,” he adds.
