More than 900 people turned up to the Mayhew Animal Home’s Open Day in Trenmar Gardens on May 21 to get an exclusive look behind the scenes and enjoy a wealth of entertainment.

The event allowed an opportunity to talk to staff and volunteers about their work helping dogs and cats to escape a life of abandonment, cruelty and neglect.

People enjoyed a Happily Rehomed Parade, with many recently adopted dogs taking part.

Mayhew supporter, Angela Songui compered the entertainment which included acoustic singer, Dolly Mavies, and a brass band.

There were also garden games and activities and a raffle.

Zoe Sheehan, Mayhew events officer, said: “Thank you to everyone who attended and supported The Mayhew, including staff and volunteers. It was great to see so many people enjoying the street party and having a look behind the scenes at the vital work we do.”
