Fun day for our

Halifax Courier - - Yourcourier - By Felic­ity Macna­mara

Thou­sands of pounds were raised to help an­i­mals in need as proud dog own­ers showed off their pam­pered pooches at a dog show and fun day.

Orga n i s e d by Knine and Kitty Care, the event, now in its sixth year, raised £1,500 for the or­gan­i­sa­tion.

Held at Heath RUFC ear­lier in the month, there was plenty for all the fam­ily to en­joy in­clud­ing stalls, raf­fles, a tombola, face paint­ing, a fal­conry dis­play, plus a fun dog show and agil

ity ring.

Clive Black, of Knine and Kitty Care, said: “It went very well, the sun shone for us and I think ev­ery­body en­joyed it. We also had a dog that came into our care - our foster carer brought him to the show and he was adopted.

“That’s a suc­cess story in it­self. We are cur­rently ap­peal­ing for more foster car­ers as we are run­ning a lit­tle short at the mo­ment.”

The or­gan­i­sa­tion, which res­cues and re­homes dogs and cats, is run by vol­un­teers and funds raised from the day will go to­wards ne­ces­si­ties for the an­i­mals. For more in­for­ma­tion, search for Knine and Kitty Care on Face­book or call 01274
