Fun dog show will raise cash for animal volunteers charity
A FUN dog show will raise money for an animal charity.
The event which is coming up at Teggs Nose Country Park is in aid of Animal Support Volunteers.
This is a group of people living in the Macclesfield and Alderley Edge area who are dedicated to helping animals in need.
They have very limited funds but aim to find homes for animals in need and offer help with vets bills where possible.
When an animal is injured in a road accident members will collect the casualty and attempt to identify and contact the owner and can offer practical help to owners who have a pet go missing.
Paul Chilton, from the group, said: “We’re holding the fun dog show to raise money to help the volunteers continue their work looking after animals.
“We hope dog owners will come along and join in the day.”
Classes at the event will include cutest puppy, best veteran, prettiest bitch, most handsome dog, best rescue and waggiest tail.
There will also be classes for most appealing eyes, judge’s choice to take home and fancy dress, which can be the dog and owner.
It will culminate in an award for best in show and rosettes will be handed out for 1st to 4th places.
There will then be a ‘Doggie Olympics’ with six races including egg and spoon race and bean bag race and medals for first, second and third places.
All classes and race winners will receive a goody bag donated by Barkers of Wilmslow.
The Animal Support Volunteers dog show will take place on Sunday, May 22 at Teggs Nose Country Park.
It runs from 10am to 2pm. There will also be a dog behaviour clinic.
All classes in the dog show cost £1 to enter.
