A popular dog show that raises funds and awareness for rescue animals attracted crowds to Potters Bar Cricket Club.

Rosettes were handed out to first to sixth place winners, with Best Rescue each receiving a donated goodie bag and a well done rosette.

Around 20 dogs were entered into each class and the day raised just over £2,500, which will help animals in need.

A number of animal welfare charities turned up with stands to offer services and information about their work, including Lozza’s Lurcher and Podenco Rescue, Heathlands Animal Sanctuary, Sighthound Stopgap, Greys 11+, and Hetty’s Hedgehog Rescue.

Many visitors also donated to the rescue stands.

The dog show was judged purely on a fun basis by veterinary clinical director, Helen Lee of Woolpack Surgery, in Buntingford, who said it was one of the hardest jobs ever choosing between so many beautiful dogs.

There were plenty of raffle prizes, ranging from Champagne, chocolates, a doggy stroller to a photography sitting at Imago Studio.

Organiser Lisa White said: “The dog show proved to be the favourite as usual, but none of this is possible without donations of prizes, and funds to continue our voluntary work.

“A huge thanks goes to Arden Grange, Tesco Potters Bar, Fish 4 Dogs, Pets at Home, and to the sponsors of each class.”
