Wednesday, 6th July 2011

People in the UK who invest in dog chew toys and dog food may be interested in attending a party to raise money for an animal charity.

Battersea Dogs & Cats home will be hosting the UK's biggest ever dog party on July 17th in Essex's Towerlands Park.

The Party Pooches event will include plenty of dog food for pooches to munch on, including a six-foot chocolate fountain.

Richard King, Battersea Brands Hatch centre manager, said: "We are really looking forward to the Party Pooches event, and can't wait to meet lots of dog-lovers.

"Hopefully it will really raise awareness of what we do, and since we are near to Essex we'd love to welcome the Party Pooches visitors to our site in the future. We also really appreciate the funds it will raise for us."

Tickets for the event cost £12 if bought online and £15 on the door. The event has been organised by Essex dog salon
