UPDATE 16th July: Unfortunately, due to a scheduling conflict, the Shibden dog day event will no longer take place in July. Instead, the new date is set for the 7th of August at the same time of 12-3pm. The RSPCA branch apologises for any inconvenience caused.
Original story as follows
The RSPCA Halifax, Huddersfield, Bradford & District branch are holding their first dog show in over 18 months at Halifax’s Shibden Park this July.
The event goes ahead on Saturday 24th July from 12 – 3 pm and offers ten different dog show classes to enter and a variety of stalls and games for all the family to enjoy.
Over the past year, the branch has rehomed 30 dogs, 63 cats and 24 small animals. They are a self-funded branch of the National RSPCA, responsible for raising money locally to support animal welfare work.
‘Fun for all the family’
Speaking on the plans for the events, Fay Gibbons, Digital Fundraiser, said: “We look forward to hosting our first fun dog show since Covid-19 brought our events calendar to a halt.
“We’re back with lots of fun for all the family and we’ve got classes suitable for all dogs – from puppies to golden oldies and more!
“So if you’re looking for something fun to do to start off the Summer Holidays, then be sure to join us this July 24th – we can’t wait to say hello to our supporters in person again and we’re sure it’ll be an amazing day!”
The event itself is free to attend, and the dog show classes cost £2.00 to enter. All funds raised at the event will go directly to the Wade Street Animal Centre.
This local, independent RSPCA branch is hoping to raise vital funds after struggling through the Covid-19 Pandemic, whilst also raising awareness of the welfare work they do in the Halifax, Huddersfield, Bradford and district areas.
