If you would like to host one, please sign up by following the link below. We will then send you out a special organiser's pack and will be around to give you guidance on the lead up to your event.

Our kennels cost a staggering £25,000 to run a month, so every penny you raise by holding a Pooch Party really will help out the dogs and other animals at our centre.
