Charity Open Day & Novelty Dog Show
Dog lovers across the South East of England are invited to Remus Horse Sanctuary on Sunday 2 September for the second of our fun Dog Shows taking place at the next Open Day. Visitors will also be able to meet the latest rescues including Daisy pictured.
Enjoying our 35th anniversary year, Remus host just six Open Days between May and October opening on the first Sunday of every month, and two dates – July and September – feature a Novelty Dog Show including fun classes such as: Bad Hair Day and Best Sausage Catcher, along with something more meaningful – Dogs with a Disability (blind, deaf or a life changing illness) and of course, the ever-popular Best in Show. Entry into each class costs just £1.50 and the 1st – 6th winner receives a rosette. Entries will be taken from 1pm, show starts 1.30pm.
Entry to the Open Day is £4 for adults and £2 for children and will take place from 1pm to 5pm. The Sanctuary offers entertainment for the whole family including a kids’ corner with face painting and bouncy castles and live performances from children’s entertainer Magic Dave, competitions and games; music from local band Midnite Blu; delicious refreshments including sandwiches and homemade cakes – including gluten free; many stalls and a raffle.
Parking is available on-site, with disabled access and dogs are welcome at every Open Day on a lead.
The Sanctuary provides rehabilitation and care for over 200 animals: including horses, ponies, donkeys, cows, goats, sheep and cats. The Open Days are a vital source of fundraising for us as, due to our location on greenbelt land, we can only open to the public for a limited number of days each year.
Founder of the Sanctuary, Sue Burton, says, “We love inviting the public to come and visit the Sanctuary, and the novelty dog shows are always such great fun! Opening to the public in this way allows us to show-off our premises and our animals, giving people a real insight into the amazing work that we do.”
