Many disabled pet owners will count on their canines to help them with daily duties, such as walking across the road, getting the post and answering the telephone. Because they are so heavily relied upon, the Canine Partners charity consistently works to ensure that disabled people have the help they need from dogs who receive appropriate training and care. An effort is currently being made to raise funds for the charity, so that more disabled pet owners can benefit from the hard work provided by charity workers and dogs.
This Sunday, June 24, the Super Pet Dog Competition will take place at Queen Elizabeth Country Park. The competition will attract people from all nearby areas, especially in the south region. This is the third year that the annual event has taken place and previous events have proved a success, with last year’s event raising around £3,500. The Canine Partners charity is located in Chichester and, with every person visiting the event paying £3, the money is sure to mount up. This will then be put towards transforming the lives of disabled individuals.
Glenis Lawrenson, who is an organiser of the charity said:
“We are delighted to be able to raise funds for Canine Partners once again and help to support the valuable work the charity does to change the lives of people with disabilities.”
Courses will be set up on the day for pooches to test their abilities and, for those who excel in their efforts, trophies will be presented. Contact the competition organisers on (023) 92597 160 if you want to enter your dog in some of the competitions.
