Admission is free (parking charge applies). If you are coming
please bring some pet food to donate and we will distribute this to local animal charities and rescue centres. Full details of the event can be found at www.petsinthepark.info

New Rehoming Website (Posted July 2013)

As part of our ongoing support of local animal charities we have launched a new rehoming website where local animal charities can upload photographs and descriptions of the stray animals in their care that need a loving home. There are sections for dogs and puppies, cats and kittens, small furries (rabbits/guinea pigs etc) and horses. Please take a look at the site www.thecheshirepetcharitynetwork.co.uk and also ‘like’ the facebook page www.facebook.com/thecheshirepetcharitynetwork

The more people that spread the word the more homes we can find for these poor animals.
