Fabulous Family Fun Day & Novelty Dog Show5th Aug 2019
7th August 2019
With over £8,000 raised from the event, we want to thank each and every visitor that joined us for the Family Fun Day and Novelty Dog Show on Sunday 4th August at our Church Knowle Rehoming and Visitor Centre. The atmosphere was ecstatic, the weather was on our side and most importantly we raised an amazing amount of money for the care and welfare of rescue animals at MGAR. We also had the sale of the Grand Draw Tickets which will also go towards the total amount raised, well done to the winners:
1st Ticket No: 027477 (Poole)
2nd Ticket No: 066996 (Wareham)
3rd Ticket No: 061223 (Portland)
4th Ticket No: 085854 (Okehampton)
5th Ticket No: 023049 (Bournemouth)
6th Ticket No: 001898 (Tamworth)
7th Ticket No: 024706 (Poole)
We had a fabulous day and we hope you did too! Without your support and that of our volunteers, traders, judges and sponsors we couldn’t run our events so a huge thank you to you all.

Hay Bale Hurdles
A new event for dogs to take part in this year was haybale hurdles, where dogs had to run from one end of the course to the other, hurdling the haybales as they went. All participants were timed and there were some very fast runners but the overall winner was
Libby in a time of 2.93 seconds, owned by Mike
There was so much to enjoy for the whole family throughout the event, including the animal activities: Hobby Horse Gymkhana, Egg Collecting, Making a Cat Toy and playing the Rabbit Game.
