COVID-19 Monthly Dog Presentation update

The safety and well being of our staff, volunteers  and  friends  is  most important  in  these  difficult  times.


The monthly Dog Presentations at West Parley Memorial Hall have been cancelled for the foreseeable future, due to the restriction on numbers.  If you have submitted an application we will be in contact, but please be patient.

We are now starting to reopen our application process. We are limited by current advice and regulations, but will be able to start interviewing applicants and holding our induction meetings.  These will be by invitation only.


All our collections  and events remain cancelled for the foreseeable future.
