Goole RSPCA dog show is back!

Proudly sponsored by Burgess Pet Care, Goole and District RSPCA are delighted to be back at West Park, Goole, for its Dog Show on Saturday 18th June, 1-4pm (12.30pm onwards registration, you can register for a class throughout the event.

After a two-year enforced break due to the pandemic, the charity has its paws crossed that the day will raise much-needed funds for local animals.

Whether you reckon your prized pooch would be champion at Waggiest Tail or a good dog for Sit and Wait, there’s something for everyone, £1 a class entry. The classes are Best Child Handler (12yrs or under), Cutest Puppy (six-12mnths), Prettiest Bitch, Most Handsome Dog, Waggiest Tail, Prettiest Eyes, Sit and Wait, Best Groomed Dog, Ten Years and Over (we love a golden oldie!), Fun Run Obstacle course. With the finale, Best in Show, 1st, 2nd and 3rd get their paws on a rosette and a food bag from Burgess Pet Care.

All winners of each class will automatically be entered into Best in Show (overall winner) for a chance to win the 2022 trophy and a treat box courtesy of Minmont Pets who will also be in attendance. Thank you to all our judges for giving their time to this event, and we are also grateful to compere Cllr Caroline Fox for returning once again. The judge’s decision is final.

Stalls include Dan Read Digital Art who offers ‘pawsome’ portraits with a difference with 10% of each sale going directly to Goole RSPCA, Yorkshire Barkery pet treats, Heather’s Bunting and Bandanas, Jerry Green, Yorkshire Swan Rescue, Paul’s Country Kitchens, Retired Greyhound Trust Humber, Linbee Dog Home, and Mamma Wins Pet Supplies.

Not got a dog? No problem! Join in the fun with Howden’s bouncy castle and slide or the ever-popular model train ride and many more activities. Don’t forget to try your luck on the RSPCA tombola and pet tombola stalls. West Park Cafe and the Green Team’s mini garden centre on site will be open.

Secretary Georgina Petty said: “Coronavirus has led to challenging times for many; lots of calls for help from penny-pinched pet owners, logistical challenges with supplies for cats in care, steep vet bills and an increase in demand for spaces for sick, injured and abandoned cats and kittens. The Dog Show is the main fundraiser for the year so getting this date back on the calendar is a big boost for animal welfare.” She continued: “The emphasis is on fun and showcasing responsible pet ownership, whether you grab a rosette or an ice cream, it’s going to be a great day. A huge thank you to all our volunteers, stall holders and supporters”.
