Dog Show 2021 - What a Pawsome Day!

Now that we’ve had a little chance to recover, we’d like to say the most enormous thank you to everybody who helped to make our Annual Dog Show the most successful event we’ve ever had at the sanctuary! As this was not only our first independent dog show, but also our first event following the pandemic, we really didn’t know what to expect, but you amazed us all. We were absolutely bowled over by your support and the sheer number of you who came out – a record number in fact!!

Thank you to every one of you who came from near and far. YOU helped to make this day so special, a day that we are all still talking about here!

Thank you to our sponsors, the amazing caring team at Home Instead Sandwell & Dudley. They have been as excited about this event as us from the beginning and it was wonderful to finally meet the team (thanks for the goodie bags, sweets, and calming pep talks!). We’d also like to say an enormous thank you to Lillie at Moo Dog Training who sponsored our rosettes, donated treats for our goodie bags, and was with us every step of the way with help and advice – and a surprise puppy visit before the show to make us all smile! We couldn’t have done it without these amazing people.

A very special thank you to Lisa our Judge who kindly volunteered her time for the day to meet all of you and your wonderful dogs. It’s a tough job choosing between them and while we believe they’re all winners, someone must choose – we think she did a wonderful job! We’d also like to thank Nicky who kindly gave her time to help her out.

Thank you to our stallholders; all local businesses, crafters, and charities – buying from these stalls supports local small businesses and this is so important now more than ever. One of our stalls even sold out before the end of the day thanks to your custom, and you also helped the very deserving Little Paws Cat Haven to raise an amazing £443.50 towards their work!

Thank you to Rainbow Mutts Agility for their amazing agility displays and have-a-go agility fun throughout the day. They also kindly r
