Just before the end of the school holidays, GAS organised a fundraising pet show online. We had all kinds of animals entered including dogs, cats, small animals (including guinea pigs and a rabbit), and in the exotic entries we had a horse and a hedgehog.
We had entries and prizes prizes in the following classes:
Best Small Animal
Most Exotic Pet
Pet Fancy Dress
Cutest Pet and Owner (aimed at the kids!)
All class winners won a rosette and a certificate, and were entered into the Best in Show Category, with runner-up and third places also receiving a rosette and certificate, and various discretionary prizes awarded. Judging was by public vote, with the Best in Show judged by independent judge Wilma Sutherland, a dog show judge.
We had over 30 entries, with people still trying to enter after the deadline. The feedback was very positive, and we hope to run a similar competition next year. Around £97 was raised, as some people made extra donations. Best in Show was Blossom, a rabbit owned by Imogen.
Best in Show winner: Blossom
