Merseyside Rescue Dog Awards

small_unnamed.jpgCelebrate your rescue dog

Paying tribute to rescue dogs across Merseyside because we truly believe that rescue pets make great pets! If you have rescued a dog (from anywhere) and would like to show the world how much you love him or her, we want to hear from you. We are looking for entrants into five competitions:

  1. Dog that has come on leaps and bounds (such as weight improvement, temperament improvement etc).
  2. Most devoted doggy.
  3. Most memorable Merseyside Dogs Home dog (must be a previous resident of MSDH).
  4. Golden Oldie (over 10 years old).
  5. Dog that has most changed a person’s life.

To enter your dog is completely free; please send us at least one photograph and a statement no longer than 500 words to tell us why you think your dog deserves to be crowned the winner of your chosen category. You can enter your dog into as many categories as you wish.

Nominations should be emailed to or handed in at reception of the dogs’ home (Merseyside Dogs Home, Greensbridge Lane, Halewood, Merseyside, L35 1QH) no later than Wednesday 14th September 2016 at 5pm.

Each category will be whittled down to a top three by our fundraising team and the winners will be chosen by our fantastic team of volunteers who dedicate their spare time to help at the dogs home.

Winners of each category will be invited to our Bark in the Park event at Southport in September, where they will receive complementary tickets to our Top Dog Tent where winners will be announced. They will get to meet our main stage performers from the day and listen to exclusive talks by kennel club trainers – and plenty more!

If you have any questions, please call our team on 01513742001.

Merseyside Dogs Home (registered charity 1161947) is the only rescue on Merseyside dealing with local stray dogs, relying totally on public support. You may not know that we receive no government or lottery funding, which means we rely on donations from our supporters. We work closely with dog warden services of Merseyside to take in, rehabilitate and rehome the unclaimed and unwanted stray dogs in this area.
