Fun-filled dog show will raise funds for RSPCA animals in need

Dog show will be held at RSPCA Bryn-y-Maen Animal Centre on 21 May

s your dog a golden oldie or the best rescue? If so, your pet pooch could be a winner at a dog show taking place to raise funds for RSPCA Bryn-y-Maen Animal Centre.
The Upper Colwyn Bay animal centre is holding its annual dog show on Sunday 21 May between 11am and 3pm and promises to be a fun-filled day with you and your pooch.
As well as a dog show with classes for all ages, there will be rescue dog of the year, raffle, tombola, bargain pre loved pet goods, along with with VIP tours of the cattery and small animal unit. 
The dog show classes will include puppies from six to 12 months, golden oldie seven years or over, fastest Bonio eater, happiest dog, best ears, rescue dog of the year final.
There are also classes for best child handler, dog the judge would most like to take home, best six legs (owner plus dog), best waggiest tail and most appealing eyes. The first class will start at 11am with registration from 10.30am.
The summer dog show will help animals that come into the RSPCA’s care like Berty. Berty came into RSPCA care after being removed from a multi-dog property by the charity’s rescuers. 
Animal centre manager Vicky Williams said: “Our annual dog show is one of our favourite events of the year. It’s lovely to see our supporters and families spending time and having fun together with their dogs and helping raise vital funds for the animals in our care at the same time.
“Bertie is such a lovely dog and has so much to give. He was very nervous on arrival with an extremely matted coat. The team have worked hard to help Berty feel more confident and he is now ready to find his forever home – which would be with another dog.
“All the funds raised on the day will go towards helping the animals like Bertie. Last year we rehomed 164 animals – which included 40 dogs. 
“At the moment due to the cost of living crisis our centres are busier than ever helping animals in need and we appreciate all the help from our amazing supporters. It would be fantastic to see a good crowd join us on the 21 May to celebrate our centre and of course raise some vital funds too.”
The event will cost £2 per car entry and it will also be £2 per dog show for each class entry. Cash will only be accepted.
