Hertfordshire Blue Cross rehoming centre, in Kimpton Bottom, held the event to raise funds for a much-needed revamp of its premises.

Centre manager Kellie Brooks said: "We want to say a huge thank you to everyone who came down and supported the event.

You may also want to watch:

"The rebuild of the centre is a chance for us to really make a difference to local pets. It is not just a building - it is a future for pets in need."

The work will begin in August and aims to be completed by September 2020.

During the refurbishment Blue Cross will be continuing to find pets new homes through their Home Direct scheme.

This means pets will be rehomed from their current household without the need of a shelter.
