The RSPCA Halifax, Huddersfield, Bradford & District branch is returning to Manor Heath Park, Halifax on Sunday, 5 September from 12pm to 5pm.
The branch is returning with their largest annual fun dog – K9 Party In The Park. This year’s K9 Party will also be celebrating the event’s 21st anniversary.
The anniversary event will feature an impressive 21 different classes for dogs and their owners to enter on the day.
After a long 18 months of cancelled events over the COVID-19 pandemic, the local RSPCA branch is delighted to return to holding events for the local community.
K9 Party In The Park will be fun for all the family. The event will hopefully raise vital funds for the self-funded branch to recover after a financially challenging year due to the virus.
‘Bigger and better than ever before.’
Fay Gibbons, Events Coordinator, said, “K9 Party In The Park is our biggest event of the year, attracting over 700 dogs throughout the day! it’s always very exciting for us – but it’s going to be extra special this year as we’ve been away for 2 years and we’ve missed all of our fabulous supporters and their dogs so much! We’ve even got a special digital class this year called ‘Absent Friends’, which is available to enter for anyone who can’t attend on the day.
“We hope everyone will help us celebrate the 21st anniversary of our K9 Party and this year it’s going to be bigger and better than ever before – so pop the date in your diary now and we’ll see you on Sunday, September 5th!”
‘Have-a-go Agility’ area
The K9 party will have a large ‘Have-a-go Agility’ area featuring the Springers Agility Team, a variety of food and drink stalls, and an array of local trade stalls and games – all alongside the 21 class fun dog show.
The event is free to attend, but entry into the dog show is £2.00 per class.
The Dog Show registrations will begin from 11:30 am. To take part, participants need to download, print out and fill in a registration form, which will speed up the entry on the day.
