Unfortunately for many proud dog owners, we do not have a Crufts in Spain, however, here on the Costa Blanca we do have the next best thing – and that comes in the form of the annual APAH Fun Dog Show.
For those who have participated in the event in previous years, you will know that this is a great day out for the whole family and their canine friends – and also how important it is as a fundraiser for the charity, which looks after and rehomes hundreds of animals every year.
This year, there will be two dog shows, with the first taking place next Sunday 13 May from 12.30 pm.
Any pet owners wishing to participate in this event with their pet are welcome to go along and sign up for as many categories as they wish. Registration takes place from 12.30 pm, with a 10,00€ fee per dog and owner. Judging will then start at 13.30 pm.
The dog show is being held at the Carpa Municipal in Pilar de la Horadada, which is located close to the swimming pool and sports centre.
Businesses are also invited to attend the event, paying a small fee for a table within the marquee where they can promote their business and market their wares.
As well as these stalls, there will be a raffle, tombola and refreshments for everyone to enjoy.
For more information, please send a message to the charity via their Facebook page (ApahRescueSanPedro) or telephone the charity shop in Pilar during opening hours (Mon-Sat: 10h to 13.30h) on 966 766 555.
