Yesterday the GSPCA held first ever Spooky Halloween Sponsored Fancy Dress Dog Walk at Saumarez Park.

The Spooky owners and dogs started arriving around 5pm and were greeted with a few gifts for the owners and some lovely treats for the pooches.

The walk started and finished at the Saumarez Park Tea Rooms and the group set off just after 5.30pm.  After what was a glorious day the sun quickly disappeared as the witches, ghouls, pumpkins and even a hot day set off around the park.

The money raised will help animals like the two young kittens recently rescued to the 25 Slovakian puppies.

For the best fancy dress the owner and dog won a cash prize of £100 and the second prize won a case of wine with some other goodies.

The GSPCA would like to say a huge thank you to the team at Saumarez Park Tea Room who donated the main prizes.

It was a difficult decision for organisor and judge GSPCA Manager Steve Byrne as everyone had made a fantastic effort.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said "We'd like to the the Saumarez Park Tea Rooms who sponsored the prizes including £100 for the best dressed spooky owner and dog at our Spooky Halloween Fancy Dress Sponsored Dog Walk which took place on Sunday."

"It's the first time we've organised a Halloween Dog Walk and we had a great turn out, fantastic weather and wonderful dressed owners and dogs raising funds for animals in need at the GSPCA."

"Not only did we have a fun spooky walk but we also had a few games at the Tea Rooms and they also had plenty of food and drink for all."

"The winner was 'Frankinpup' also known as Merlin and he and his family had made a fantastic effort."

"Second place was Bobbie who looked very spooky and third place a lovely collie called Poquie."

"Really everyone was a winner with great outfits."

"Funds and donations are still coming in and a huge thank you to all involved."

"We are hoping to organise a Santa Paws Dog Walk around the park on Sunday 13th December and more details will be released very soon."
