Last year we were inundated with lots of messages from people who were dissapointed that Paws with Pride didn't go ahead in 2016. We have set this page up in a bid to raise enough funds to host the event this year.
Our aim is to host Paws with Pride, Northern Pride's popular family pet spectacular at Leazes Park sometime in August 2017. We plan on hosting ‘gay walkies’ - their very own Pride Parade for dogs. So all being well 'rainbow up' your Rottweiler, camp up your chihuahua and lets make this years event a one to remember!
As always we aim to bring a fun dog show with ‘prettiest bitch’, ‘cutest expression’, ‘waggiest tail’, ‘feeliest fur’ and even the ‘most butch or camp dog in fancy dress’. For our cat lovers we'll have ‘show us your kitties’ and our bonny cat photo competition.
For the kids, with your help, we'll bring a mini zoo with rabbits, guinea pigs, a bouncy slide, carousel and other rides, pony rides, alpacas, Shetland ponies – even a reptile house and so much more but we simply can't do it without your help!
This will be a great for your pets, family and friends to enjoy a fantastic day in the park but can only be staged with your help and support so dig deep and help us reach our target!
