A BARKING GOOD START TO THE NEW YEAR

What better way to celebrate moving into the year 2002 than with your faithful four legged friend at the annual Exemption dog show at Wood Green Animal Shelter in Godmanchester.

This New Year's day the Charity are hoping to once again see hundreds of people and their dogs take part in the dog show which is being held in the Britten arena at the Godmanchester Shelter.

The show, held under Kennel club rules is open to all, with entries accepted on the day from 9.30am is the only one of its kind in the region. The dog show has proved over the years to be an extremely popular event and provides the perfect day out after the festive period. Simon Blows, Event Co-ordinator at Wood Green Animal Shelter said of the event."We love seeing all the fun that's had on New Year's Day as the dogs love the chance to get out after Christmas.

There are plenty of different classes for all types of dogs from the breed sections and obedience to fancy dress or waggiest tail."The New Year's Day Exemption Dog Show is a vital fundraising event for Wood Green Animal Shelters, supporting the Charity's work in caring for and rehoming animals at a particularly busy time of the year.
