Finding Forever Homes

It's nearly here ..... the Companion Dog Show - Church Knowle

Companion Dog Show 2017 Poster

We are looking forward to a bright and fun filled day on Sunday 6th August for our annual Companion Dog Show (yes, we've checked the forecast).  The event, held at Church Knowle Rehoming & Visitor Centre, will certainly be a great day out for the whole family (including the dog!)

The fun starts at 11:00 with so much to do on the day, including Pedigree and Novelty classes, displays, Pet Photo Booth, a raffle, some superb refreshments and much more to enjoy!

There will be an admission fee to enter the Church Knowle Rehoming & Visitor Centre for this day at £3 for adults and just £1.50 for children up to 12 years

Many of the dogs you will see have found their Forever Home with Margaret Green Animal Rescue and we couldn't do it without your help and support.

It's all for a great cause, so have a great time, and let's see if we can raise some much needed funds while we have fun.


Dog Show Classes

£2 per class, (entry on the day) or 6 classes for £10

Rosettes will be awarded for 1st to 6th place in each category, plus some special rosettes at the Judge's discretion.
