THE RSPCA Halifax, Huddersfield, Bradford and District branch are inviting all families and their four-legged friends to join them for their annual Shibden Dog Day event at Shibden Park, Thursday 26th July, 12-4pm, in conjunction with Calderdale Council.
Fay Gibbons, Events Coordinator said “We’re thrilled to be inviting the local community and their dogs to our annual Shibden Dog Day! We have such an amazing amount of support for the event and it’s great to be able to offer families something exciting to do during the summer holidays.’’
Shibden Dog Day includes a fun dog show with classes such as ‘waggiest tail’, ‘puppy love’ and ‘best junior handler’. There’s something to suit all dogs and owners and plenty more to enjoy with local trade stalls, games and Have a Go Agility.
The event is taking place after the RSPCA sadly had to postpone their popular K9 Party In The Park event on 8th July due to the extreme weather. This has made this year’s Shibden Dog Day even more important as the branch hopes to see lots of their supporters on the day to help raise vital funds for local animals in need.
The local RSPCA branch, which is self funded, is hoping to raise crucial funds for their Wade Street Animal Centre and all of the animals in their care, whilst also raising awareness of the welfare work they do in the Halifax, Huddersfield, Bradford and district areas.
