The Blue Cross rehoming centre in Kimpton held a fun dog show and also had stalls and games for visitors to enjoy.

It is estimated that about £3,000 was made from yesterday’s event.

Animal welfare assistant Sarah Miller said: “A lot of the dogs had lots and lots of fun.

“It was also great for the staff to see dogs come back looking really happy with their new families.

“It was also great to have feedback on how they were getting on.

“We had an agility dog show which was a really big success.

“I think it cleared about £600.

“We had a sprint race, hurdles race and temptation alley where the dogs had to get from A to B without getting tempted by treats or toys.”
