Did you know that all profits from Just Dogs Live are passed to charity?
East of England Arena and Events Centre is, itself, owned by a charitable trust and all profits are uplifted to support its charitable aims.
But that’s not all, we also choose a couple of specific canine or animal related charities to support. For 2019 we have chosen Pets as Therapy and Animal Helpline Dog Rescue.
Pets As Therapy is a national charity founded in 1983 by Lesley Scott-Ordish.
It enhances health and wellbeing in the community through the visits of trusted volunteers with their behaviourally assessed animals. They provide a visiting service in hospitals, hospices, nursing and care homes, special needs schools and a variety of other venues all across the UK.
Animal Helpline rescues unwanted dogs and puppies, and re-homes them to new loving homes. Thousands of unwanted dogs, strays and pound dogs have found their way through their kennels during the 30 years they have been rescuing dogs. You are very welcome to visit their kennels, by appointment.
Registered Charity Number 1151287
Your £7 parking fee (booked in advance, £12 on the gate) allows you and as many people you can squeeze into your vehicle (legally!!) into the show and this support the event and the venue charity. We ask for a £2 donation for every dog you bring with you, which is divided between Pets as Therapy and Animal Helpline, in that way your dogs are each helping their fellow dogs.
