Ingatestone, Essex – Dog lovers across the South East of England are invited to Remus Memorial Horse Sanctuary on Sunday 5 July for its Novelty Dog Show taking place at the next Open Day.

Remus host just six Open Days per year and the July and September dates feature a Novelty Dog Show including fun classes such as: Best Dog Hero – for those that have made a real difference to their owner’s lives – Cutest Puppy 6-12 Months, Best 6 Legs, Most Appealing Eyes, Best Tail Wagger 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, judging commences at 2pm.

Entry to the Open Day is £4 for adults, free for children and will take place from 1pm to 5pm. The Sanctuary offers entertainment for the whole family including competitions and games, music from local band Midnite Blu, delicious refreshments including sandwiches and homemade cakes, many stalls and a raffle. Parking is available on-site, with disabled access and dogs are welcome 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 the charity that, due to its location on greenbelt land, 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.”
