The Fetcher Dog 'Doggy Day Event' was a huge success and raised £1850 for the dogs
The Doggy Day Event took place on the 20th August, 11-3 at the Evegate Business, Retail and Artisan Village.
It was a huge success with hundreds of visitors nearly all of them brought their dogs, there were many new faces to the charity, but also previous adopters came along to support us, accompanied by their Fetcher Dog dogs bringing back some nice memories and emotional moments.
We had twenty stalls selling the very best in dog related items, children's rides and a number of professionally run dog competitions and demonstrations that ran throughout the event. There was also a dog agility course that proved popular for the dogs, raffles, tombolas, jumbles sales, face painting and Simply Ice Cream treats that proved very popular with the humans.
It was great to see all the dogs, all different shapes and sizes all mingling, playing and having fun.
The sun shone and there was a cool breeze to keep the dogs from getting too hot, the day went well and there were lots of smiley faces and interesting dog related banter.
We raised £1850 on the day and we would like to thank Molly from the Evegate Business, Retail and Artisan Village for hosting and helping to set up the event, all the volunteers who gave of their time and their expertise, all the stallholders, all the companies that donated items for the raffle, all the visitors who supported us with their involvement and money and, of course, all the dogs.

Events like these form part of our local community engagement programme which aims to raise awareness of the charity and the work we do to support and protect dogs in both Bosnia and the UK.
