The event comes as Saving Yorkshire’s Dogs prepare to open their first charity store in Leyburn High Street next month.

The volunteer-run rescue charity has a set of kennels in the Yorkshire Dales and takes in dogs from council pounds, vets and the public.

Once in the care of the charity, the dogs are assessed, rehabilitated and placed with suitable families.

The new Saving Yorkshire’s Dogs charity shop is due to open in Leyburn High Street in mid-September.
