One Fun Day goes Virtual!Stefanie Anderson
Join the RSPCA Northamptonshire Branch for a virtual pet show to raise money for animals
Event is part of the RSPCA’s Virtual One Fun Day on 14 June
The RSPCA Northamptonshire Branch is inviting pet-owners to get involved with a Virtual Home Pet Show in June to raise more money for animals in Northamptonshire.
The event is being held as part of the charity’s Virtual One Fun Day, which is taking place simultaneously across the network of RSPCA branches and animal centres across England and Wales.
Over 30 Home Pet Shows will take place across the country, culminating in a live final on video calling app Zoom on 14 June, which will be live streamed as part of One Fun Day.
In addition to the live Home Pet Show final, there will be a day of animal-themed family friendly virtual fun to celebrate RSPCA and our lockdown animal friends.
Dawn from RSPCA Northamptonshire Branch said: “This is a different way of fundraising for us because of the Covid-19 restrictions, but many people seem to have got on board with video calling since the start of lockdown so we hope lots of supporters will join in for our virtual pet show!
“We can only do all our work with animals in need thanks to the generous support of the public so by logging online and enjoying yourself you will be helping us continue to be there for animals, especially during these tough times.”
There are 7 Home Pet Show classes taking place from 1st June to 13th June, all of which will welcome all pets and their owners whether they are furry, scaly or feathered and will focus on an animal’s behaviour, wellbeing and the special bond between pet and their human friend, rather than looks or breed.
The shows can be entered by texting to donate and then submitting your photos and videos to firstname.lastname@example.org and also three of the classes are taking place as a LIVE Zoom event on Saturday 13th June. There is no limit to the number of shows you can enter.
To text to donate it’s just one message sent to 70450 with the word NORTHAMPTON followed by your donation amount (we ask for a minimum of £2 donation per class)
For example, your text should read NORTHAMPTON 2 and sent to 70450
