The RSPCA branch which covers Huddersfield is holding a fun dog show.

The RSPCA Halifax, Huddersfield, Bradford & District branch’s K9 Party In The Park will be in Manor Heath Park, Halifax, on Sunday, July 7, from 11am to 5pm.

The event has been running for nearly 25 years and 2024 is extra special as it celebrates 200 years of the national RSPCA.

Local RSPCA marketing and communications officer Fay Gibbons says: “Each year we aim to make the K9 Party bigger, better and as fun-packed as possible and 2024 will see new event additions such as a doggy ball pool with spectator area, new traders, the option to pre-pay and register for the dog show online via our website to speed up our queues and lots of other little surprises on the day too.”

The Animal Charity hopes to raise vital funds for the local RSPCA Animal Rehoming Centre on Wade Street, Halifax. The centre rehomes up to 400 local animals every year – it’s already found new homes for 124 dogs so far this year – and is a self-funding branch of the RSPCA, covering Halifax, Huddersfield and Bradford.

The event is free to attend but donations are always needed and partygoers will receive a free goodie bag on the day.

The fun dog show can be entered from 11am and is just £2 per class. These include ‘Eyes That Melt Your Heart’, ‘Best Rescue’ and ‘Most Bonkers.’

People entering the dog show are urged to pre-register via the RSPCA website to help keep queuing to a minimum, but people can also sign up on the day if this is preferred.

The RSPCA Halifax, Huddersfield, Bradford & District Branch is a self-funding branch of the national RSPCA, responsible for raising money locally to support its animal welfare work.

Its main aim is to rehabilitate unwanted, abandoned and abused animals and find them loving, permanent homes but relies on public donations and the generosity of the local community to keep the animal centre doors open.
