Run errands or dine with friends without leaving your lovely pets! Ayala Malls continues to open its doors to household cats and dogs of any breed. Aiming to nurture a healthy pet community in the malls, pet policies—more fondly known as Pawlicies—are put in place. These identify the dos and don’ts of every responsible pet parent and the regulations per mall.
Furthermore, Greenbelt 5 is chosen as the official venue for the 203rd and 204th Championship Dog Shows happening on 26th to 27th of February. This highly anticipated event is organized and hosted by The Philippine Canine Club Inc. (PCCI) together with the Fédération Cynologique Internationale (FCI).
With all these programs thoughtfully operated by Ayala Malls, animal lovers can finally enjoy the purrfect spot to bond. Set apart for its spacious al fresco areas and pet-friendly culture, paw-parents are free to shop, dine, play, and stroll with their furbabies, anytime at Ayala Malls.
Pets are important members of the Ayala Malls community. With almost 6,000 registered Petizens and counting, patrons can always expect furry companions adventuring the mall’s wide open spaces, common areas, and even restaurants.
Joining Ayala Malls’ pet community is as simple as 1-2-3. First, all pets should sign up for a Pet ID at the concierge to present vaccination records. Second, paw-rents with complete documents should present the Pet ID to the patrolling security guard upon entering Ayala Malls. Finally, once inside, paw-rents should clip the Pet ID on their furbaby’s collar or leash so they can access the pet-friendly facilities including Ayala Mall’s official dog park, Barkyard.
Thoughtfully designed to brighten up the day of every mallgoer and furbaby, Barkyard features separate play-pods for small, medium, and big breeds so each kind can run around off-leash with their own furry kind. Aside from spacious grassy lawns, the pods also include obstacles for pure active adventures during every visit.
Furthermore, the Pet Pawlicies follow a three-tier system to guarantee a healthy pet community in all Ayala Malls, depending on its features. Malls with greater outdoor areas fall under the Lax Tier wherein pets of any size may enter both indoor and outdoor facilities. Meanwhile, those with less outdoor space follow the Limited Tier Pawlicies, which allow small pets both inside and outside the mall provided they are on carry-on bags or strollers. Lastly, the terms of the Hybrid tier vary per mall however it is geared more towards the enjoyment of pets within the mall’s outdoor premises.
Common to all tiers, pet collars must always be worn, as well as a leash not longer than 5ft. when inside or within mall premises. To ensure cleanliness, paw-rents should always look after their cats or dogs by disposing waste properly using wet wipes and disposable bags, to be thrown in designated waste bins. To help minimize necessary cleanup, diapers are also either required or highly encouraged depending on the regulations of the mall to be visited.
