Rookley Pavilion hosts fundraising dog shows for not-for-profit organisation From Foster To Forever, this weekend.

Sunday’s event is free, but money raised throughout the day will go towards supporting abandoned dogs in foreign countries, some of which get new homes in the UK.

Animals are fostered, before the organisation seeks “forever homes”.

The event runs from 10am until 4pm, with the first dog show due to start at 11am.

Sue Raan works for the organisation. She said,

“In Spain, which is where most of the dogs do come from, there seems to be a culture that they have the dogs for a short period of time then they just abandon and dump them, and the process out there is very different to ours, we are actually really working hard to get them out of there and get them a home.”
