New park gets tails wagging
King William’s Town residents braved the rain last Saturday to attend the second annual Savemor Fun Dog Show at the Dale Equestrian Club.
“The heavens opened in full force and the show had to be hastily moved indoors but this did not hamper the spirits of the competitors and the show went on,” organiser Mike Webb said.
Various classes were held to ensure all dogs had a fair chance to win. Competitors walked away with goodie bags and caps, while at least R4,500 was raised for the KWT SPCA.
The day also marked the opening of the KWT Community Dog Park, which can be used free of charge by the public.
“Many thanks to all who participated in the rainy conditions and to all the sponsors and helpers who helped make the show possible.
“The dog park was well received by all and I’m sure it will be greatly appreciated by our furry friends,” Webb said.
