Beat the back-to-school blues with Happy Tails! The RSPCA Halifax, Huddersfield, Bradford & District branch and FOCAL Community Centre are bringing a family fun dog show to Reinwood Rec, off New Hey Road, Oakes, on Saturday September 3 from 12noon-4pm.

Happy Tails is a great day out for all the family and our canine companions – featuring a 10-class dog show, Have a go Agility, local trade stalls, rides and refreshments.

Lauren Moore, RSPCA fundraising manager, said: “We can’t believe it’s been a whole year since we created Happy Tails and we’re so excited to be back again.

“Last year’s event had a great buzz throughout the day and it was amazing to meet all the dogs and their families! Happy Tails is about getting the local community together to celebrate all things dogs and we hope this year will be no different.’’

The event, sponsored by the three Lindley ward councillors Cahal Burke, Anthony Smith and Adam Gregg, is free to attend with dog show classes just £1.50 each to enter and Have a Go Agility hosted by Springers Dog Agility & Flyball Club.
