Top support for Wiltshire cats and dogs home event
11:00am Thursday 5th September 2013 in News
The Bath Cats and Dogs Home fun day took place on Bank Holiday Monday, with the annual event attracting a record number of attendees to the Claverton Down site.
The event has so far raised £20,000, with money still being counted, and included the popular Fun Dog Show, which involved a number of entrants from Wiltshire.
Winners of the 2013 Fun Dog Show awards included Louise Bailey from Warminster with Foxy, who won Dog with Best Trick, and Jason Evans from Westbury with Alfie, who won Scruffiest Dog.
Caroline Hook, press officer for the home, said: “It was brilliant to see so many friends and ex-doggy residents enjoying themselves in the sun.
“In a year that has seen a dramatic rise in animal cruelty cases and abandoned animals, the home is crying out for donations.
“A rise in running costs has meant that the home is seriously starting to feel the financial pinch, so thank you to everyone for making it such a memorable day and digging deep into their pockets.”
