Macclesfield Express - - MACCLESFIELD PEOPLE -

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.
