Dog show to help abandoned pets


Rhian Waller

ANIMAL lovers are invited to a dog show which supports abandoned pets.

The Pet Welfare Association in Dyserth is planning a grand fundraiser where dog owners can show off their pet, whether they are a pedigree pooch or a much loved mongrel.

The event, which will take place on July 8 at Llewerllyd Farm on Long Acres Road, will raise vital funds to help feed and house the dogs and cats cared for by the association.

Marjorie Summerfield, owner of the centre, said: “There will be two categories, one for the Kennel Club registered, and a novelty one for people’s pets, so they can bring the family dog along.

“We need people to attend because donations help keep the centre going. We are also still looking for an outdoor caterer to provide teas, coffees and snacks.”

The classes, which include everything from pedigree toys, terriers and gun dogs, from dog show veterans to newcomers, from scruffiest dog to the dog with the waggiest tail cost £1 per entry, and judging starts at 11 am.

Marjorie said: “The funds will go to support the animals here, like Ollie the cat. He’s long term with us. He came to us quite young and now he’s an adult, but we’re still hoping to rehome him. The problem is most people are looking for kittens, but he’s lovely, very friendly, and would make someone a good pet.

“And there’s Rufus the Newfoundland, we’re looking for a good home for him as well. As he’s large, he does need someone who knows how to deal with the breed.”
Spaces are still available to anyone wishing to set up a stall, but places must be booked.

Public car parking free and entrance is by donation.
