Pet-friendly malls in Metro Manila
Are you a pet owner? Have you ever been in a situation where you want to do your grocery shopping but just can’t leave the house? Let’s face it, all pet owners have been in this type of situation at one time or another. Who can blame them? When faced with those cute puppy eyes or the constant whimper for attention, how can you ever leave your furbabies at home even for just a few hours?
Fear not, furdads and furmoms, there’s light at the end of the tunnel!
Here is a list of five malls in Metro Manila that allow pets:
All Ayala Malls – not just in Metro Manila – have been accepting of furbabies for a very long time. Our lovely canine and feline companions, however, must be on leashes and carried while using the escalators. What is perhaps the best thing about Ayala Malls is that they do have stores and restaurants that are friendly to pets. Just look for the pet-friendly stickers on doors and windows of establishments.
Robinsons Malls have what they call the Happy Pets Club. The club was first launched in Robinsons Magnolia and had an initial membership of about 200. Members of the club are entitled to participate in special events for pets, such as animal shows and interactive seminars on how to be responsible pet owners. But even without the Happy Pets Club, Robinsons malls are accepting of furbabies, as long as they are wearing diapers and not allowed to run around on their own.
Bonifacio High Street
The huge park smack in the middle of Bonifacio High Street is a haven for our pets. It’s so friendly to animals that even strays frequent the area. This part of Bonifacio Global City is probably the only place in Metro Manila where you can see dogs jogging with their humans or furbabies eating at restaurants with their furparents. There aren’t many rules about bringing pets to Bonifacio High Street, but the most important one is for pet owners to clean after their pets.
For those unfamiliar with Megaworld Malls, think Eastwood City Mall or Venice Grand Canal Mall. Yeah, now you know. These malls are also pet friendly. They have rules, however, so pay attention. First, furparents are required to get their furbabies a Pet Pass. To get a pass, you need to show your pet’s vaccination record and submit a photocopy of the record and a few colored photographs of your pet. That’s it! Among the Megaworld Malls, Eastwood is probably your best bet if you want to enjoy your time out with your pet. Eastwood City Mall has an indoor dog park and café called Bark Central. Spending time there is not free, however, but your furbabies will have a blast playing with other pets.
SM Malls are probably the latest addition to the pet-friendly mall tribe, and they are a bit strict with the rules. First off, your furbabies must be hand-carried, placed in a pet carrier, or leashed. Second, not all establishments in the malls are pet friendly. When in doubt about rules concerning pets, you can find the mall’s guidelines posted at the mall entrances.
