A fantastic day to celebrate everything canine! We would like to thank each and every one of you that came out to support our stray dogs.
You helped raise over £12,400 towards the ongoing care of every dog in our centre. We had over 2,000 visitors and hundreds of dogs attend to make it as enjoyable as it was for everyone.
There are many thank you's which we have to share with you...
To our volunteers for your hard work and dedication - we know it is a very long day but we couldn't do it without you.
To Co-op and Pets at Home Erdington - thank you for allowing your colleagues to come over and support us on the day - we really appreciate you giving them the time to help us.
To Jennifer Jefferies who again donated her time and all the funds raised on her Pet Pawtraits stand - you are such an inspirational woman - thank you.
Also a big thank you to Joe Flynn who was our volunteer Photographer - first time working with us and you were amazing!!! Captured the day beautifully and we have some amazing photos to cherish - thank you so much. (@joeflynnphoto on Instagram)
To Rohini Videography - we can't wait to see what you have produced for us!
Another thank you to Central Legion who helped bring you the fantastic characters on the day - all volunteered their time to help make you smile and raise funds for our stray dogs - you were amazing and we really enjoyed having you!
To the emergency services who took time out of their busy schedules West Midlands Police Dogs - yet another spectacular show, the fire service which we loved getting an insight into your job and the rural police too - we really appreciate your support and hope that you will be able to join us again next year and also to St. John Ambulance volunteers for being on hand with any first aid issues.
To all our stall holders - you may have had to hold on to your gazebo's but we loved having you there and the weather held out for us!
Our supporters loved seeing you and we hope you have a great day too!
To Cafe2U Solihull who donated £1 for every drink sold - he helped raise over £200 for our dogs too! Wow! Thank you Lee and team!
Also to Batman Ice Cream van - you also help support our dogs with a generous donation and also provide some lovely treats to our staff and volunteers - thank you so much.
Last but not least a big thank you to our judges Charlie from Ancol Pet Products and the team from St. Georges Vets - they have the hardest job of the day but they certainly love seeing all your dogs up close and personal! Thank you for taking on the challenge and giving us a great Dog Show.
It's important to remember that these events would not be able to happen without the support of St. Georges Vets - they help sponsor the event and provide you with beautiful rosettes and goodies for your prizes.
A big thank you to everyone that helped make this day a success and we can't wait for our next one!!! Keep a close eye on our social media and website for updates on up and coming events - we hope to see you there!
