Pet Events in the UK - November 2016
If there were a month of the year that dogs didn’t like, it would probably be November, due to Firework’s Night (read our article on firework advice from the RSPCA here).
For that reason you may choose to stay indoors with your pets for the first part of the month but if you do venture out, here’s a list of some pet-related events taking place in November.
20th November – Ash Dog Show
CReDO (Campaign for Responsible Dog Ownership) is collaborating with Aidens Labradors to raise funds for the Cinnamon Trust at monthly dog shows in Ash Village Hall, near Canterbury, Kent. Dogs can compete in 41 classes at each show to win 13 golden tickets and qualify for the Championship in December.
27th November – The Mayhew Animal Home’s Christmas Fair
Animal lovers are invited for a behind the scenes look at the Home at Christmas. During the day you can enjoy Christmas carols, a festive raffle, stalls selling Christmas gifts, Christmas crafts, Santapaws workshop and plenty of mulled wine and mince pies.
Join them from 12pm to 4pm at The Mayhew Animal Home, Kensal Green, London. Entry is £3 for adults and £2 for children, with all funds raised helping the animals in their care.
