Put your best paw forward at Dogs Trust Darlington's Fun Day

Dogs and their human companions are being invited to Dogs Trust Darlington’s Family Fun Day on Sunday 15th July.

Taking place at South Park in Darlington from 12.00pm to 4.00pm, the event promises plenty of fun and games for everyone including the ever popular All Day Fun Dog Show with classes including: Best Senior Dog, Cutest Puppy and Best Rescue Dog, so make sure your four-legged friends have their paws at the ready. All proceeds from the day will go towards the continued care of residents at the Rehoming Centre, dogs like Halo who recently came into the care of staff at Dogs Trust Darlington.

Halo is an absolutely gorgeous young lad looking for somewhere to call his own.  He loves his walks and is great on the lead; he likes toys, especially tennis balls and the company of other dogs, so would make an excellent addition to a family home.  His favourite pastime though is relaxing out in the sun while watching the world go by.

Other activities available at the Fun Day include a Doggy Dash, a raffle, various stalls and the ever popular Dogs Trust Tombolas. There will be Canine Carers on hand to offer rehoming advice, free microchipping and a Dogs Trust Reunion tent.

Dogs Trust Darlington’s Supporter Relations Officer, Gordon Norrie, said:

“Everything we do is for our rescue dogs and we hope you and your four-legged friends can join us on the day and show your support. We can promise you a really fun day out for all the family, with lots of activities available throughout the day.

“It’s a fantastic opportunity to meet local dog lovers and raise pounds for the hounds in our care as the proceeds from the day help us to care for all the dogs like Halo at the Rehoming Centre.”

“We are concerned that as Halo may remain in our care for some time as typically black sighthounds stay much longer than other colours and breeds, which is a shame because he has a charming personality and temperament and will make an amazing family dog.

Gates will be open 12.00pm-4.00pm. Entry is absolutely free so come along and have a fantastic day out.
