Macknade to host bank holiday dog show for happy endings rescue

Macknade is making the most of the long weekend with a fun charity dog show on the early May Bank Holiday (May 6th), in aid of Happy Endings Rescue - a local charity caring for animals who have been abandoned or neglected.

Attendees can enter their pooches in one of the following categories via the Macknade website:

  • Best Costume
  • Waggiest Tail
  • Junior Handler
  • Mirror Image (Dog that looks most like its owner!)
  • Golden Oldie (Dog over 8 years old!)
  • Best Trick

Entries are free, with the option to make a donation on the day to Happy Endings Rescue upon registration with the team.

There will be special prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places in each category, including a free consult with Macknade’s on-site veterinary practice - Swale Barn Vets - who will also be offering free doggy dental check-ups throughout the day!

Spectators are also very welcome (and encouraged!) to come along and cheer on their favourite dogs, whilst enjoying everything else the Food Village has to offer. There will also be free kids activities to keep the little ones occupied and a pop-up from Simply Ice Cream, offering all-natural doggy ice creams.

The event runs from 10am to 4pm, with the last category at 3.15pm. To find out more and to enter, please visit:
