Local RSPCA return to park with Shibden Dog Day!

Aug 30, 2023

THE RSPCA Halifax, Huddersfield, Bradford & District branch are excited to be back at Halifax’s Shibden Park for their annual Shibden Dog Day! The event will take place on Saturday 9th September from 12pm-4pm, with a 12 class fun dog show and a variety of stalls and games for all the family to enjoy!

Fay Gibbons, Marketing Officer said “We love hosting our popular Shibden Dog Day as the park has so much history and beauty it makes the day even more special! As always, we’ve got classes suitable for all dogs with something for the puppies to the golden oldies. So if you’re looking to beat the back to school blues and find something fun to do in Halifax this September, be sure to join us for Shibden Dog Day!”

The event is free to attend with dog show classes costing just £2.00 to enter. The local RSPCA branch, which is independently funded from the National RSPCA, is hoping to raise funds and awareness of their rehabilitation and rehoming work.

It costs £1826 to operate their Animal Centre for just one day and events like Shibden Dog Day, along with support from the local community, are vital for the rehoming centre to continue its animal welfare work across Calderdale, Huddersfield and Bradford.

The event is sponsored by Shibden Mill Inn (owner pictured above)
