Nickelodeon Holds ‘Pets’ Day Out’ for the First Time in the Philippines

Mark your calendars on 15 and 16 June, and get ready for Nickelodeon’s first “Pets’ Day Out” in the Philippines. This free two-day event is dedicated to kids and their pets , with activities that will help kids bond with their pet through games and play! To be held at Central Plaza, Eastwood City from 10am – 6pm, kids and their families can look forward to pet-themed activity booths that their pets can also participate in, stage games, and special appearances by celebrity guests. Skye from PAW Patrol will also make an appearance.

According to Viacom’s ‘Story of Us’ study, pets play an important role in a family and act as their happy pill, leading to high pet ownership around the world as families derive emotional support from their pets. In particular, kids feel more connected to their pets, and may even choose to confide in their pet before family members!

“At Nickelodeon, we are all about kids and making the world a more playful place so we have conceptualized this event to celebrate the connection that real kids have with their furkids! “Pets’ Day Out” will let kids further appreciate their paw pals, through quality time with them in fun-filled games and activities that they can both participate in!” said Ms. Syahrizan Mansor, Vice President, Nickelodeon Asia, Viacom International Media Networks.
