Spring Virtual Fun Dog Show

Calling All Dog Owners To Enter Our Spring Virtual Fun Dog Show...

Our dogs have been wonderful companions to us during the pandemic and have provided a lot of comfort during the lockdowns. Why not put a spring in their steps, and enter our Spring Virtual Fun Dog Show? They will have the chance to win a special Raystede rosette and goody bag.

By entering, you will also be helping us raise vital funds during these tough times so that we can look after the 400 animals at our centre. Every single day Raystede is closed to visitors we are losing £1,000. By entering the Virtual Dog Show you are helping us to take care of the rescue dogs and other animals at Raystede.

To enter all you need to do is click on THIS LINK and choose which categories you'd like to enter. You can upload your photos at the same time as entering or email them to You can enter as many categories as you like, multiple times. It's £3 per entry/photo you send us. Did you know that the donation from each entry could buy a large bag of treats for one of our kennel dogs?

(Please note your photos and Videos may be shared with The Argus for them to publish.)

Our Virtual Fun Dog Show will stay open until the 30th April 2021. All the entries will then be judged and there will be a winner and three runners up in each category. All winners and runners up will receive a special Raystede rosette and a goody bag.

Each entry/photo will automatically be entered into the 'Best In Show' category. We are super excited to announce that the 'Best In Show' class will be judged by famous author Lee Child and the winner will receive a signed copy of 'The Reacher Guy' which is Heather Martin's recently published biography of Lee.

The 'Best In Show' winner and runners up will also receive a unique Raystede rosette and a goody bag.
