Dogs Trust Glasgow is inviting local dog lovers and their “best friends” to a summer gala with a difference at Chatelherault Country Park.

The event, on June 4, promises plenty of fun and games for everyone, including the All Day Fun Dog Show, a Doggy Game Zone, have-a-go agility and a Doggy Dash.

There will be Canine Carers on hand to offer rehoming advice, free microchipping and a Dogs Trust Reunion and Rehoming Tent – where happily rehomed hounds are invited to sign the guest book.

Dogs Trust Glasgow supporter relations officer Emma-Louise Livingstone said: “There are all sorts of fun activities planned throughout the day so do come along and support Dogs Trust Glasgow we can promise you a really fun day out for all the family.

“We currently still have spaces available for trade pitches and we are appealing for donations for raffle prizes and tombola stall, whether this be wine, books, games or toiletries, etc.”

She added: “We are so excited to be hosting another annual Fun Day.

“It’s a fantastic opportunity to meet local dog lovers and raise pounds for the hounds in our care, as all proceeds from the day help us to care for the many stray, abandoned and unwanted dogs we currently care for at our Glasgow Rehoming Centre.”

The gates will be open from noon till 4pm, and there’s both free admission and free parking.

The venue itself is a magnificent estate based around the landmark former country seat of the Dukes of Hamilton (which is a visitor attraction in its own right), and ideally suited for major summer events.

Dogs Trust is working towards the day when all dogs can enjoy a happy life, free from the threat of unnecessary destruction.

Dogs Trust is billed as the UK’s largest dog welfare charity and cares for more than 15,000 dogs each year through its network of 20 rehoming centres .

It deals with the consequences of neglect on a daily basis, and works hard to find new, caring homes for dogs which have been left – for whatever reason – without the love and security they need.

TheDogs Trust fun day special on June 4 aims to raise awareness of what the Trust and its supporters manage to achieve, while giving dog lovers and their pets a great day out.
