Bark in the Park is our annual FUN dog show and family day to help to raise much need funds for our Abbey Street Animal Re-Homing Centre in Derby.
If you are not already aware we are a self-funded, independent charity and at present it costs £9000 per week to run our Centre. Our mission at Abbey Street is to help rescue, rehabilitate and rehome the hundreds of animals that arrive at our door having suffered from cruelty or neglect.
We have held our annual dog show at Markeaton Park for the past 3 years. We hope to provide fun and entertainment for all the family and it is an opportunity to showcase the talents of both 4-legged friends (and occasionally a 3-legged one!) and their handlers.
Our wide variety of fun classes include everything form the waggiest tail to best rescue dog.
Stalls and entertainment will be open from 11am - 4pm. They include everything from food stalls selling delicious cakes and treats to locally made burgers. As well as children entertainment in the form of bouncy castles, swingboats and toy stalls.
