Newport autumnal shootDog owners from across Newport and beyond are invited to a special autumnal photo shoot at the RSPCA’s Adoption Centre, at Pets at Home, on Saturday (October 7).

The event, taking place at the Newport store at the Mendalgief Retail Park on Docks Way, allows dogs and their families to have a professional photograph taken, and enjoy a series of fun-filled activities.

Dogs, and their owners, will be snapped by professional photographer Freya Whittington, with a 5 x 7 photograph offered for just five pounds.

Photography bookings are by appointment, with the event running from 10am until 4pm. Those interested can telephone 0300 123 0595 to reserve their space. Printed photographs can be collected the weekend after the event.

With October in full swing, the photographs will have an autumnal theme, with owners and their dogs surrounded by pumpkins, leaves and seasonal colours.

Guests can also enjoy a tombola, the increasingly renowned Newport Adoption Centre cake sale, and a lucky dip for children.

The event marks the third such photograph shoot held at the Adoption Centre, following Christmas and Spring-themed events.

RSPCA rehoming coordinator Jacquie Dove said: “We’re so excited to once again open our doors to dog owners from across Newport, and beyond, for our latest seasonal photo shoot. It’s the perfect way to make beautiful autumnal memories with your beloved pooch!

“For just a fiver, dog owners can grab a professional photo of their companion, and even include the whole family if they wish!

“There are plenty of other activities for everyone to enjoy – including a tombola, lucky dip and cake sale, which is becoming increasingly famous across the city of Newport!

“It all gets underway at 10am on Saturday October 7, and photographs are by appointment only, so we’d urge anyone interested to contact 0300 123 0595 to book their place.”
