Our fa­mous Fun Dog Show is a real win­ner

Midweek Visiter - - The Rspca Column -

AS SUM­MER comes to an end and ev­ery­one is think­ing about re­turn­ing to school or work af­ter a break, we at the An­i­mal Cen­tre would like to re­mind you that we rely en­tirely on the gen­er­ous do­na­tions made by the public.

It costs around £20,000 per month to keep the An­i­mal Cen­tre up and run­ning, so ev­ery penny raised is vi­tal and we re­ally ap­pre­ci­ate all the do­na­tions we re­ceive, large or small.

Over the last few months I have been amazed and hum­bled by your gen­eros­ity.

We re­cently re­ceived a do­na­tion of £453.90, which had been raised by Great Crosby Catholic Pri­mary School.

They ran events and held com­pe­ti­tions and very kindly nom­i­nated us as the char­ity they wished to do­nate to.

So, I would to say a big thank you to all in­volved and hope you had a re­ally good sum­mer hol­i­day!

Ad­di­tion­ally, chil­dren from the Grove Project brought a do­na­tion and food & treats for the cats, whilst vis­it­ing the Cen­tre on Au­gust 14.

It is al­ways good to see our chil­dren tak­ing a keen interest in the an­i­mals and it was also fun to see the dogs tak­ing them for a walk!

As au­tumn ap­proaches I would also like to re­mind ev­ery­one that our Fun Dog Show will be held here at the An­i­mal Cen­tre on Sun­day, Septem­ber 24.

Come on down for a day of dog­gie ac­tiv­ity with all things an­i­mal catered for. We have lots of stalls booked and a va­ri­ety of food out­lets to look af­ter both two legged and four legged friends!

The Dog Show we held in May was a huge suc­cess and very well at­tended; please come along and see first-hand what we do and meet some of our an­i­mals wait­ing to find their forever homes.

Fi­nally, as I ap­pear to have been re­flect­ing on the sea­sons in this ar­ti­cle, let’s not for­get about win­ter, or more pre­cisely, Christ­mas and our Fair to be held at Green­bank High School, Hill­side, South­port.

Santa has his usual role booked and al­though I haven’t both­ered count­ing how many shop­ping days re­main un­til then (sigh), but please set aside one of them for our Christ­mas Fair, the date of which has now been of­fi­cially set as Saturday, De­cem­ber 9.
