Take Part in a Virtual Dog Show to Raise Funds For City Hospice during COVID 19.

We are very excited that our friends over at Dog Furiendly are lending a paw during these unprecedented times. We are a chosen charity for Bark Aid, a campaign to support charities through Coronavirus (COVID-19).

We’re a nation of dog lovers, so to lend a helping paw, Dog Furiendly  and other dog related businesses are hosting a virtual dog show to raise the crucial funds needed in this time. We all know that COVID-19 is having detrimental effects on our society in the UK and the rest of the world.

Bark Aid aims to lift community spirits and help ease the pressure of the community by supporting charities that need funds the most. But wait, what is a virtual dog show I hear you woof? It’s a photo competition where you can upload photos of your dog in a series of fun categories.

After all, they’re the ones by our side during this tough time, so it’s a great way to show them off. Everyone who enters will have the chance to win rosettes and prizes for their pooch. There’s over 20 tail-wagging categories in total including ‘Fabulous Fella’ (best male dog), ‘Gorgeous Girl’ (best female dog), Golden Oldie (dog’s over the age of 8) and more.

Adele Pember Founder of Dog Furiendly told us

“It’s a great way to bring the community together. We hope we can be as much help as possible during this time.”

The category for City Hospice is  Dog Most Like Their Owner and you get to win prizes from By Buddy and Pawty Pooch
