NDDF organises a show at Piel’s FarmTownship every year. This is their report from this year. Stunning, stunning show – just look at those pictures…

“We hold this unique dog show to allow owners to showcase their special dogs.  Only sterilised dogs are allowed to enter (unless there are puppies that are too young, but the owners have vaccinated and dewormed them, and they are scheduled for sterilisation when old enough).  Throughout the year we encourage the owners to have their dogs vaccinated, dipped and dewormed by us.  Through this programme, the owners interact much more with their dogs who are in turn, handled by us and we are given the opportunity to monitor their welfare on an ongoing basis and take appropriate action if needed.  It makes our job that much easier, and it develops excellent relationships between us, the owners and the dogs – and this is very important to our organisation.

From these pictures, we are also giving the public and our generous regular sponsors the opportunity to see how happy, well cared for and loved these dogs really are and to dispel any misconceptions that people living in townships should not own dogs.  It is through our continuous education and support that we make it possible for these residents to responsibly own a dog.

We would also like to say a huge thank you to our Sponsors, Regular Donors, our Fabulous Judges & Volunteers – listed in alphabetical order for not only making the show possible, but also for making our work at Piels Farm so successful – we could not do it without you :-
