Hounds on the Heath

London charity The Mayhew Animal Home is holding its fifth annual dog summer event on 10 July, 11am and 4pm, at Hampstead Heath. The event, previously called Hyde Bark, is open to families and dogs alike, with a celebrity-judged dog show, an agility provided by Friendly Creatures, and a meet and greet with dog behaviourist expert Kevin McNicholas.

Zoe Sheehan, Events Officer, The Mayhew Animal Home says, “Our Hounds on the Heath event is a great day out for all the family, especially for dogs who can join in the fun. There’s a lot to do and get involved in with dog competitions, games and a raffle.

“We’d ask that people put the date in their diary and come along. It would be great to see everyone there.”

All proceeds will go to help The Mayhew help more animals in need across London. The Mayhew Animal Home helps thousands of dogs and cats every year though through "a range of community-based animal care, education and welfare projects", and has recently won the Animal Charity Team of the Year Award at the PetPlan and Association of Dogs and Cats Homes (ADCH) Animal Charity Awards.
