We were delighted to be invited by our friends at Hope Rescue to attend the Machen Show last Saturday (July 4th).
The showground was packed with lots of different things to see and do and the glorious weather played its part in attracting a large number of people during the course of the day with many bringing their pets along with them to enjoy the sun.
Three of our team (Kate, Leanne and Laura) were in attendance on a stand within the Hope Rescue area at the show. We were kept busy with visitors coming over to our stand to introduce their pets and benefit from the free micro chipping service we were providing for dogs at the event. It was also a great opportunity for us to learn more about the great work Hope Rescue does in their work to improve the welfare of dogs in south Wales.
Kate Richards from our Newport branch was asked to be the judge of the very popular Hope Rescue Family Dog Show. Over 150 dogs were entered into the various categories and Kate a dog lover herself had to make lots of difficult decisions during the judging to identify the winners and runners up for each.
Commenting on a very busy Machen Show, Kate said, “We’ve been attending the Machen Show for a couple of years and Saturday was certainly the busiest one to date. We had a great day in the sunshine and personally the highlight for me was judging the dog show which had a record number of entrants. I spent a very enjoyable afternoon meeting lots of dogs of many different breeds, sizes and age and their owners.”
Budget Vets enjoy a strong relationship with Hope Rescue. We strongly admire and respect the great work they do looking after stray dogs as they seek to rehome them.
We’ll be attending quite a few more shows during the summer, please check our website to see where and when.
