Emma Green, HRTC Project Manager & Deputy Clerk says: "We are delighted to once again be partnering with the RSPCA Halifax, Huddersfield, Bradford & District branch to bring this popular event back to Hebden Bridge.

Responsible dog ownership plays a key role in the Hebden Royd community. We know that pets can make an important addition to our lives and families, they can enhance our experiences of the outdoors as well as help reduce loneliness. We're looking forward to recognising and celebrating this at another fabulous community event!"

The event is free to attend, and you don't need to be a dog owner to join in the fun! For those who are attending with their four-legged friends you can sign up for the dog show or agility on the day. Hebden Royd Town Council and the local RSPCA hope this event will be a lot of fun whilst promoting responsible dog ownership and the need to keep our beautiful parks clean and safe!

Fay Gibbons, Marketing & Communications Officer says: "Hebden's Happy Hounds is always such a fun day! As a local animal charity partnering with Hebden Royd Council, it's important to highlight the need for responsible dog ownership, keeping our open spaces safe, whilst also providing the right love and care for our four-legged friends. It's the perfect opportunity to learn more about caring for our canines and you might even come away with a rosette or two - we hope you can join us for another amazing event!"

Hebden's Happy Hounds hopes to raise vital funds for the RSPCA Animal Rehoming Centre on Wade Street, Halifax. There will also be an opportunity to dop off supplies for the Mayor of Hebden Royd's chosen charity - Calder Food Support - at a dedicated stall on the day.

This is an inclusive event that's open to everyone, and to dogs of all ages and breeds, with cash and card payment options available on the day.
