Dog lovers from across North Wales are invited to the RSPCA Bryn-Y-Maen Animal Centre’s Fun Dog Show on 21 May.

The ‘Fun Dog Show’ is taking place at the Centre, in Upper Colwyn Bay, on Sunday 21 May, and runs from 11am until 4pm.

Staff at the Centre have highlighted how the show celebrates “everything we love about dogs, of all breeds, shapes and sizes”.

There will be fun dog classes aimed at owners of all ages during the day, dog agility sessions, plus an awards ceremony to mark the ‘Rescue Dog of the Year’. Additionally, there will be stalls, a raffle, games, tombola and a BBQ.

Registration for the dog events takes place on the day, and those wishing to participate are advised to arrive as early as possible. Entry forms are available before the day at the Bryn-Y-Maen reception, or can be obtained digitally by emailing brynymaen@rspca.org.uk.

In 2016, 90 dogs, 245 cats, 35 rabbits and 83 other animals were re-homed from the North Wales Centre.

Attendance at the show costs only £1 per car – with parking available at the Bryn-Y-Maen Animal Centre site.

RSPCA Cymru will also be promoting a number of their key animal welfare campaigns at the show – including calls on a ban of the use of wild animals in circuses, and efforts to establish an animal abuse Offender Register.

Chris Butler from the Bryn-Y-Maen Animal Centre said:

“We cannot wait to open our doors to dog lovers from across North Wales for the Fun Dog Show, on 21 May, between 11am and 4pm.

“With dog agility, competitions aimed at all ages, and awards, this is a day dog fans across the region will not want to miss.

“It promises to be a hugely enjoyable day, with something for everyone. It’s an event which will proudly celebrate everything we love about dogs, of all breeds, shapes and sizes.

“Anyone looking to enter their dog into one of the classes on the day are urged to arrive as early as possible, with registration at 11am. People can collect registration forms in advance of the day from the Centre reception, or email us on brynymaen@rspca.org.uk.

“We re-homed some 453 animals in 2016, and this event gives us another opportunity to showcase our work to the community, and bring together animal lovers from all corners of North Wales.”

RSPCA campaigns assistant Charlie Skinner added:

“May 21 promises to be a great day – and there’ll also be the chance for members of the public to get involved in some of RSPCA Cymru’s lead animal welfare campaigns, to help us give animals a voice across North Wales, and beyond.”
