On Sunday 25 July the local community geared up for a day of celebration and support as the RSPCA Hunter shelter turned 5 years old!
Thankfully the weather held out on the day, which allowed guests to enjoy the dog agility demonstrations and party games. Lots of healthy doggie treats where shared and devoured by our four legged guests who absolutely loved the 5th Birthday dog cake specially made for them (see photo above).
A free jumping castle was available for the kids, as well as cupcakes in preparation for Cupcake Day. Quite a few dogs took advantage of the mobile 'Hot Tub' and were squeaky clean by the time they headed home!
Guests enjoyed the humane BBQ provided on the day and supported our use of local free-range pork sausages.
Representatives from companies, including Hills Science Diet and Pfizer, visited on the day to offer advice on pet care.
Guests thoroughly enjoyed the 'behind the scenes' tours of the shelter and vet clinic, and learned about the RSPCA and the important role we play within the community.
Thank you to all our guests, company representatives, staff and volunteers for making RSPCA Hunter Shelter's 5th birthday a fantastic day.
