    Countdown to our Hounds on the Heath Event on 10th July

    The Mayhew Animal Home is counting down to our dogtastic summer family and dog event  Hounds on the Heath which is taking place on Sunday 10th July 2016, from 11am till 4pm on Hampstead Heath.

    Our ever-popular annual summer event, previously know as Hyde Bark, is bigger and better than ever and we would love to see you there! All of the proceeds will go towards us helping more dogs and cats in need across London and internationally.

    Set in the heart of North London on Hampstead Heath, our event boasts lots of doggy fun as well as fun for all the family. With the scenic city skyline as our backdrop, we bring together a mix of stalls, activities and entertainment.

    • The Mayhew’s ever popular dog show with our celebrity judges
    • Temptation Alley dog fun
    • Agility Course for dogs provided by Friendly Creatures 
    • Meet and greet with dog behaviourist expert Kevin McNicholas from Training Dogs
    • Lots of stalls for four legged and two legged visitors
    • The chance to win some amazing prizes in our raffle 
    • Free dog microchipping and meet and greet with our Animal Welfare Officer team
    • Pat and chat with local police and police dogs
    • Food and drinks
