Thank you to everyone who joined us on this fabulous day! We all had such a great time, and are thrilled to announce that together, we raised $1707.30 for Hunter Animal Watch! We'd like to say a huge congratulations to all of our medal winners on the day for each event. There was certainly a good amount of competition so they were all very well deserved.
Take a look at all the photos from the day, with special thanks to our photographer Ariane, from Ariane Madden Neale photography. You can find her information and website by clicking here. We have a select few displayed here, but you're welcome to peruse through the complete contact sheet here on our Facebook page to find one of you and your pooch. Please contact us if you would like us to send you through a high-res copy of a photo you wish to print or share.
We thank you again for sharing the day with us, and look forward to another great event next year.
We welcome you to participate in our exciting event, the 2nd Annual, Dog Olympics in Newcastle! We have created this fun-filled family day not only to raise funds for the hard-working, dedicated organisation 'Hunter Animal Watch', but also for a great day out with your dog. The day will be filled with market stalls, raffles, a BBQ and of course, doggie Olympic competitions! Dogs of all breeds, shapes and sizes are invited to participate in various athletic and non-athletic competitions, such as Musical Hoops, Best Trick, Fetching Frisbees, Creative Paintings and more!
