Celebrate National Pet Month with ‘POOCH FEST!’

Posted on

The festival will run from 11am to 3pm on Saturday 22 April 2017 at Stainland Recreational Ground.

The self funded branch is hoping to raise vital funds for the animals in their care, whilst having some furry festival fun in the sun!

Fay Gibbons, Events Coordinator said

“We really can’t wait to host our brand new doggy festival in partnership with Calderdale Council. We’ll have lots of fun activities on the day, with a fun dog show, have-a-go agility ring and plenty of interesting stalls and games for both humans and pups to enjoy!”

The branch hopes that with the support of the local public they can raise awareness of their charity and raise funds whilst having fun with the community. The event also aims to help educate local dog owners on the importance of cleaning up after your pet pooches and responsible pet ownership.

Fay said,

“As well as all of the fun activities on the day, our friends at environmental health will be attending to hand out free doggy bags! We’re hoping this will help to prevent fouling on the grounds of Stainland Rec and also keep the park clean and safe for all of the Stainland community to enjoy.”
