Peter’s Prizes for Pups in Support of Cardiff Dogs Home
Sausage catching, paw pampering and a hair of the dog raffle were all part of the fun and games at a special event to raise money for Cardiff Dogs Home; supported by Peter’s.
The Cardiff Dogs Home Spring Show and Fayre took place at St Albans RFC in Tremorfa, Cardiff.
Organised by Friends of Cardiff Dog’s Home to raise money for a kennel refurbishment, the event saw supporters enjoying a range of stalls and games, including a special display by Celtic K9 Security.
The Friends of Cardiff Dogs Home organisation was set up in order to better the lives and standard of living of the dogs that reside at the home. Friends help to re-home the dogs, arrange for volunteers to walk them, promote responsible dog ownership and highlight the work done by the Dogs Home itself. The ultimate aim is to make the time spent in the kennels as bearable and comfortable as possible for each and every dog.
Peter’s supplied a range of more than 200 products for sale at the event, as well as supplying sausages for the star event – a sausage catching competition for dogs at the home.
Overall the event raised an impressive total of over £1400. Kirsty Matthews, Committee Member for Friends of Cardiff Dogs Home said:
“We had a fabulous day with a fantastic turn out and we were delighted to raise such an amazing sum.
“The Peter’s sausage rolls and pasties were definitely a big hit – we completely sold out – and the sausage catching competition was the highlight of the day. We’d like to thank everyone involved for their kind support.”
Speaking about the event, Peter’s Marketing Controller Clare Morgan said: “We were really pleased to support this fantastic and fun event and wish the Friends of Cardiff Dogs Home the best of luck with their future fundraising.”
