If you are dog-mad and want to support the plight of rescue dogs there is a great chance to do so this weekend at Discover Dogs (8-9 November at Earls Court, London).
Twelve different breeds of rescue dog will be at the event (London’s biggest and best dog event we might add!), some on the Kennel Club’s Find a Rescue stand and some on the Eukanuba stand. They’ll be with their two-legged friends to promote Kennel Club Breed Rescue organisations and all the benefits of rescuing a dog.
On Saturday 8 November, the Kennel Club Breed Rescue stand will host the French Bulldog Welfare Trust, the Rottweiler Welfare Association, Midland Chihuahua Rescue and the Cairn Terrier Relief Fund. On Sunday 9 November it will host Southern Cavalier Welfare, The Edward Foundation (Bulldogs), South Eastern Counties Staffordshire Bull Terrier Rescue and the Independent Borzoi Rescue.
Eukanuba, which sponsors Discover Dogs, is also hosting a number of KCBRs on its stand at the event, with Northern Newfoundland Club Welfare and Labrador Rescue Kent on the stand on Saturday and Valgrays Border Collie Rescue and Poodle Network UK on Sunday.
Although they may not be as well-known as other rescue organisations, Kennel Club Breed Rescues work incredibly hard to support their breed. There is a breed rescue organisation for almost every one of the 215 breeds of pedigree dog in the UK, and many of them also take in crossbreeds so they are a great resource if you are considering rescuing a dog.
