Celeb vet to visit Stapeley Water Gardens


ON MONDAY May 29 celebrity vet Steve Leonard will be spending the day at Stapeley Water Gardens with Greyhound Rescue - West of England, who are celebrating their 10th anniversary this year.

To raise money for the charity, Stapeley Water Gardens is holding an amazing Fun Day for all the family to enjoy. The Allsorts Dog Display Team will be wowing the crowds with their fantastic tricks and displays. There will be a parade of rescued greyhounds with their owners, with prizes for the best dogs; Steve Leonard will be both commentating and judging these beautiful dogs.

As well as this, there will be a falconry display with a chance to experience these fantastic birds up close, along with Ferret racing which will keep the crowds entertained with their antics!
In the Palms Tropical Oasis, which houses many fascinating animals and plants, there will be Meet The Keeper sessions with Steve and Stapeley’s own expert keepers where the whole family can get up close and personal with some amazing animals.

The famous Baton Bone will also be on site on the day, which is being passed round the country, starting its journey at Crufts. It is being brought to Stapeley Water Gardens all the way from Cornwall by Rhona and Heather, the Greyhound Rescue West of England mascot.

Later in the day Steve Leonard will be helping the keepers during the animals’ feeding sessions, giving a fascinating insight into the lives of the many creatures.

Stapeley Water Gardens are to launch a range of new products to promote natural healthy feeding for your dogs and cats. Fish 4 Dogs and Dorwest Herbs will be on site with expert advice on nutrition for your pets.
