Ferne Dog Show

Ferne Dog Show

Our Annual Dog Show returns for 2022!
With a variety of fun classes to choose from, ‘have-a-go’ agility, stalls, and delicious food our Dog Show promises to be a fun day out for all the family!
The Sanctuary will also be open to the public for the day so why not take the opportunity to go for a stroll down by the dragonfly pond and meet some of our 300 furry and feathered residents?
With all proceeds going to Ferne Animal Sanctuary, it means that we can continue to care for unwanted, abandoned or abused animals, re-homing those we can and making sure those that can’t have a home for life with us.
Further attractions to be added soon – keep your eye on our website and our Facebook for more details.
