Goole and District RSPCA are returning to West Park in Goole for their dog show.
To be held this Saturday, June 18 between 1pm and 4pm, it is the first show that has been held in the last two years due to the pandemic.

Winners of each class will automatically be entered into the Best in Show competition for a chance to win the 2022 trophy and treat box courtesy of MinMont Pets.
Stalls on offer include Dan Read Digital Art who offer ‘pawsome’ portraits, Heather’s Bunting and Bandanas, Yorkshire Swan Rescue and many others. Local community groups will also be showcasing their work, from Families in Goole to the Yorkshire 4x4 Response Team.
Even if you don’t have a dog, there is plenty on offer for a fun day out to support the Goole branch of the RSPCA. Secretary Georgina Petty said: “Coronavirus has led to challenging times for many. We have lots of calls for help from penny-pinched pet owners, logistical problems with supplies for cats in care, steep vet bills and an increase in demand for spaces for sick, injured and abandoned cats and kittens. “Our dog show is the main fundraiser of the year so getting this date back on the calendar is a big boost for animal welfare. “The emphasis is on fun and showcasing responsible pet ownership, whether you grab a rosette or an ice cream, its going to be a great day. “A huge thank you to all of our volunteers, stall holders and supporters.”
The day promises to be good fun for humans and dogs alike! (02-06-61 SU)
