Brentknoll Vets did a wonderful job of organising and running their Show for us.
In spite of the windy weather we raised about £1600 altogether, which is a great addition to our funds and we are so grateful to Brentknoll for all their hard work. The cake stall was a big attraction as was the raffle which had some amazing prizes including theatre tickets and photo sessions.
Some of the gorgeous dogs who entered are shown here with their proud owners.
Dog Show 2011
A BIG thank you to all our amazing volunteers and supporters who turned out for the dog show in spite of cold and wet weather. It was another great day for the Shelter with loads of money being raised to help our animals.
The stars of the day were of course the dogs. Not just the ones who won rosettes, but all of them who came along and behaved so beautifully. It's so good to see dogs we've rehomed coming back with their families.
First prize for Best Rescue and Best WARS dog went to dalmatian Domino as you can see on the right:
Here (on the right) you can see all three dogs lined up to receive the Best in Show rosettes, with the handsome pointer coming in first place.
And here (on the left) are some of the trailhounds who we have rehomed, in front of the Trailhound Welfare Stand.
After a stormy Saturday night which threatened to blow away all our gazebos, we had an afternoon of brilliant sunshine for this year's fete, and people arrived in their hundreds. As always loads of our volunteers helped to provide a huge variety of stalls, which were all really popular, and the refreshments had a mad rush at lunch time.
The Pontiacs were here playing live, giving us a fantastic selection of 50s and 60s hits to listen to.
We would like to thank everyone who helped to make it such a successful day which raised £2545 for our animals.

Despite the weather being overcast and the run up to the show being changeable at best, the turnout was fantastic and everyone enjoyed a great day.
The dogs all performed admirably and seemed to love the slighly muddy-under-foot conditions!
There were many winners in many catagories, but the best thing was seeing so many healthy rehomed dogs come back to see us. Thanks again for giving so generously and we hope to see you all at the next show.

There were many displays which made the day both interesting and exciting. Here you can see the D.A.F.T team doing their obedience display.
Many of the dogs that have been re-homed through us came back to say hello. Here you can see Tinker, who came into the shelter in a bit of a mess, very happy and healthy with his new owner.
The best display of the day was definitely the flyball. Everyone really got behind all the dogs and cheered them on. As you can tell by the dogs faces they were having a great time.
There were many winners throughout the day and a few cheats who were after the prizes anyway!
