Soi Dog, a charity that works to rescue and re-home dogs saved from Thailand’s illegal dog meat trade, is hosting a dog fun day at The Hope and Anchor Inn, Ross on Wye, on Saturday 25 June 2016. And, much like last year, they’re aiming to break a record: that for the most dogs in one place wearing bandannas.
Last year, 566 dogs of all breeds and size took part to the event along with their owners. While the World Record remained unbroken, they were able to beat the previous UK record of 407, set at the Essex Dog Day in 2014. This year, over 764 dogs are going to be needed to have a shot at the World Record – so, if you’d like to have a fun day out, be part of a record and support a great dog charity, this is your chance. And don’t forget bringing a bandanna for your dog!

Soi Dog is entirely reliant on donations from individuals. They sterilise and vaccinate street dogs and cats in Phuket and Bangkok, give them medical treatment, provide shelter, and have an intensive adoptions programme to find new homes for as many as possible. Many of those rescued dogs were rehomed in the UK, and some will be there for a fun day out as well, along with their new families.
