On Sunday 4th September, Cheshire Dogs’ Home will swing open the doors of its rescue centre for its annual Summer Fair, which sees the family-friendly event host hand-picked stalls, fun dog activities and a great day out for families and their fellow four-legged friends. 

There’ll be a dog show with audience participation, and categories will feature the likes of; waggiest tail, owner that looks most like their dog, best paw shaker, golden oldies and best rescue, while other events will include hay bale races and a dog agility contest.

Guests will also be able to meet some of the resident dogs at the home who are in need of a new family of their own. They have a huge range of breeds and personalities up for adoption, so this is a great chance to meet the missing piece of your family puzzle. 

Some of Cheshire Dogs’ Home’s oldest residents spend over 6 months at the home before finding the family right for them, so if you think you can give these neglected pups the life they deserve the Summer Fair is a must-visit.

The event is one of the biggest in the Cheshire Dogs’ Home calendar and every year raises vital funds that allow the home to continue the incredible work they do within the community.   

Founded way back in 1893, the home began as a place to house the growing number of stray dogs found across the North West, but it wasn’t until 1999 that it became a rescue centre. Since then, it has welcomed hundreds of four-legged residents to its Warrington base, which covers 11.5 acres in total. 

The Summer Fair will also see food and drink from local suppliers, as well as music and entertainment throughout the afternoon.
