Hospice Hounds

Do you love your dog? We’ve got the most pawtastic virtual event for you!

Hospice Hounds is our new, fun and virtual contest where you can show off your dog or puppy whilst raising funds for your local hospice. With three categories to choose from, all your lovely pooches have a great chance of being crowned the canine champion of their age category. The winner of each category will win a special rosette your pooch can wear with pride.

This virtual dog contest is calling all proud owners to send in a photograph of your beloved dog and, if you can, give a donation to the hospice. All entries will then be posted in an album of their category on our Facebook page and it’s time to vote! The winner is the photo of the pooch with the most likes or loves.

From Pawsome Pups to Oldie Goldies, let’s celebrate our dogs this summer and raise money for people who are facing life-limiting illnesses throughout Somerset.
