For all the people who hang out with the family pet at a house party, Hotel Kurrajong has you covered.
Saturday's Pets and Pimms garden party is going all out when it comes to four-legged guests, with RSPCA ACT bringing along some of its feline and canine companions - who are all ready for adoption.
But according to Hotel Kurrajung's general manager Jay Hore, it was a turtle who was the first confirmed animal attendee for the event.
"It's really a day to celebrate our furry friends and for us to play a small part in what we can do to support the RSPCA, with a drink of course," he says.
"I mean, where else can you come and have a Pimms with a turtle?
"It's a unique event and I think that's what we're really proud and excited about. It's something a little bit different but with our Kurrajong twist on it."
While having a casual Saturday cocktail in between getting plenty of puppy and kitten cuddles, the event, of course, is all for a good cause.
Money from ticket sales, as well as the sale of different pet treats and gear on the day, go to help RSPCA ACT help the territory's animals.
"As we head into the Christmas and New Year season, we are expecting 1000 animals to come into our care who will need medical assistance, rehabilitation, treats, toys and our rehoming assistance," RSPCA ACT chief executive Michelle Robertson says.
"Fundraising is crucial to our work, and we could not do this without the support of the local Canberra community."
And the Canberra community loves to support them as well, according to Hotel Kurrajong event manager Jessica Dunn.
"We know the community really loves getting behind an event like this - it's been quite clear that it has been quite popular," she says.
"We do a lot of community events and I think RSPCA do some really great work in Canberra and Australia, and we want to be able to support them."
Hotel Kurrajong is no stranger to charity events, with each of the company's department heads assisting a difference charity or cause.
"I think for us at this hotel in particular, while we do a few larger things, we like to keep in local as well," Hore says.
"ACT is a small community, it's a community that we've been a part of for 95 years now, so for us to give something back it's really special and important to us.
"It really was just a conversation about how we can help, what we can do. How can we make it a supportive day for RSPCA, but still have that Kurrajong twist on the event as well? I guess that's where the Pimms come into it - we know we're a 1920s hotel.
"We just want to help, do what can we do the help but keep it a Kurrajong event."
