Funds raised from the dog show and BBQ will be used to help the charity reach donkeys in need the world over.

We have excellent prizes for each dog class, kindly donated by Pet Photography, Exeter and Countrywide Supplies. There will be a variety of stalls selling everything from wooden ducks to plants plus a fantastic BBQ to tempt the taste buds. Whether your dog is a perfect pedigree or a marvellous mongrel, we hope to see you and your four legged friends on the day!”
