KAR would like to announce that their annual Dog Show & Spring Fayre was once more a great success. It was a lovely atmosphere and everyone enjoyed the event and the taking part. We would like to give special thanks to the following people:-
Our Sponsors that gave the lovely prizes for each class: Kaner Ltd, Dagli Trading and Selpa Trading. Alpet Petrol Ltd for donating the Rosettes for each class and for choosing to give a special prize of a Tank of Fuel to their category ‘The Most Energetic Dog’. This was won by Orhan with his dog Baron.There were 111 entries to the 10 fun classes. The Mahoney Trophy given as first prize each year for the ‘Best KAR Dog’ was won this year by Anne Nolen with her beautiful dog April.
A special prize of a large bag of dog food was also donated by two visitors who regularly help KAR with finding forever homes for dogs in Germany. This was won by Parese Collins with Buddy.
It was lovely to see Zed the dog that was recently mentioned in the press who was rescued from the sea and taken to the Near East Veterinary Faculty for treatment and recovery. He was entered in the Best Street Rescue (we didn’t have a Best Sea Rescue class!!) and the judge placed him first in the class.
Another big thank you goes to our judge Sean Watson and to all the pet supplies companies that put on some lovely displays of their products, to the NEU Veterinary faculty, CESV to name but a few. Also to all the volunteers and helpers that worked so hard to make this 2016 show an event to be proud of.
Girne Belediye should have a special mention for allowing us to hold the event in the new covered market area. It was so nice to be able to have the show site in shade and not to have to worry about hot dogs and overheated owners!
4,332 TL was raised to help the animals.
Well done to all those beautiful dogs that went home with prizes and to all those beautiful dogs that went home happy to have participated in a great show.
