Dog lovers help raise funds at National Animal Welfare Trust's open day
An animal charity raised thousands of pounds at its annual open day in Watford yesterday.
More than one thousand people visited the National Animal Welfare Trust, in Tylers Way, yesterday afternoon.
The centre, which opened its doors at noon, put on a host of activities, such as a fun dog show, a dog agility course and a parade of its four-legged residents.
Centre manager, Jackie de Friez, said: "The day was such a success. It was great to see so many people and dogs at the same time, and it was especially good to see some of our old faces.
"A lot of hard work went into yesterday’s event and it’s lovely that it’s paid off. We have a really dedicated team of staff and volunteers and we’re so grateful to the local community for getting involved and supporting us."
There was a host of stalls selling items including bric-a-brac, books, homemade cakes and pet accessories, all of which contributed to the centre raising about £9,500.
The event finished at 4pm and Ms de Friez said it was one of the best open days the centre has ever had.
