Local RSPCA return with annual Shibden Dog Show with a gentleman Jack themed twist!

Published 19th Jul 2019 by

THE RSPCA Halifax, Huddersfield, Bradford and District branch are holding their annual Shibden Dog Day in the beautiful settings of Shibden Park on Saturday 27th July from 12-4pm.

All families and four-legged companions are invited to take part in their 12-class fun dog show. Enjoy doggy ‘pawty’ games and peruse a wonderful variety of stalls and games to suit all! This year the branch are excited to introduce a brand new dog show class – ‘Top Hat Top Dog!”. In celebration of the recent success of the Halifax-based drama Gentleman Jack, the branch hope to see which dog will look best in an Anne Lister-esque top hat, (top hats will be provided on the day!)

Fay Gibbons, Events Coordinator said “We are excited to be back at Shibden Park once again with our annual fun dog show. We think the ‘Top Hat - Top Dog’ class will add a fun element and a great celebration of this beautiful Halifax park and it’s incredible history’.

Classes cost just £1.50 and the schedule includes competition favourites such as ‘waggiest tail’, ‘puppy love’ and ‘best junior handler’. There is something to suit all breeds and ages.

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. In addition it aims to raise awareness of the welfare work they do in the Halifax, Huddersfield, Bradford and district areas.
