Last month the GSPCA joined in with the fun at the South Show and enjoyed two days of festivities and raising funds for the many animals at the GSPCA, promoting the work of the Shelter and also helped judge their fun dog show.

This year the fun dog show had some fantastic prizes from Creature Comforts, South Show committee made rosettes and the Best in Show was a new cup sponsored by Forest Stores.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said “We are hugely grateful to the South Show for such a lovely event and it was fantastic to help judge their fabulous fun dog show.”

Last Friday and Saturday the GSPCA manned a stall at the first of the summer shows in St Martins.

With Friday proving quite challenging with wet weather and Saturday in the sun the team enjoyed the two days fund raising at the wonderful local event.

With plenty of games and shelter under the two gazebos from the rain and sun the stall proved very popular and raised a grand total of £423.29p.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said "We had a great time at the South Show last week and even with the wet Friday we were kept very busy."
