Join us for our virtual "dog show" with a twist!
Every year across our country-wide network of branches and centres, we hold our Dog Shows... We love these popular local events because, as well as raising much-needed funds for the animals in our care, it's also our chance to meet our supporters and their doggy friends!
Join us for a virtual One Fun Day
This year, rather than wistfully dreaming of all of the regional show-rings that can't take place this summer, we have joined forces across the country to offer over 30 simultaneous virtual pet shows! During which your home (or garden) becomes the show ring and any pet are welcome - be it dog, cat, horse, guinea pig, gecko, gerbil or goat!
Enter our Best Rescue and Best Transformation shows
The list of regional shows and how to enter can be found online on our One Fun Day page along with the 12 classes that you can enter virtually, whatever your pet, wherever you live.
Our wide range of locations and species aren't the only things that set us apart from other traditional dog shows - we will crown our winners at the Home Pet Show - not on looks, or breed characteristics but on health - behaviour and most importantly the special relationship between pets and their human companions
With classes such as Best Rescue and Best Transformation, we will celebrate the embodiment of our #adoptdontshop core values - showing off the rewards of hard work and training from dedicated owners and clever doggos!
Remember, it's not just for dogs!
Our all-animal focus will result in a joyous mix of species in each class. We hope that in the Best Trick category we may see a rat taking part alongside a pony, or a cat vs a particularly clever bird¿ When you don't have to leave your home to take part anything is possible!
We're all increasingly turning to virtual ways to meet up in these locked down times so our Grand Final will take place live via Zoom and will be streamed live so that all of our supporters can see our first-ever virtual Best in Show be crowned.
Join us for our celebrity-hosted celebration on Sunday 14 June
Our virtual show will take place at 5pm on Sunday 14 June and will be a part of virtual One Fun Day - a day of live, amimal themed activites. The day will be hosted by our celebrity friends including Rory the vet and Kate Lawler!
We will also hold sessions on dog behaviour, wildlife and have-a-go activities such as animal-themed Pilates and Face Painting. A full programme will be available from 1st June - we hope that you will come along with your pets and join in the fun. See you there!
