You and your dog are invited to the Mayhew Animal Home Tinsel and Tails Fundraiser

This Christmas how would you like to attend a stylish festive night out at The Grand Connaught Rooms, London? And what if you could not only raise money for The Mayhew Animal Home by having a great night out, but your dog could accompany you too?

Well, this most spectacular, dog friendly event is happening on 6th December in the venue’s majestic Grand Hall, and you – and your dog – are invited! There will a three course meal on offer, entertainment, information about the Mayhew’s tireless efforts to support animals in need, and a raffle and auction.

The Mayhew’s VIDs – that’s Very Important Dogs – will be in attendance, eagerly greeting guests on the red carpet. These very important dogs include as Mayhew residents who have now found their forever homes, the Mayhew’s superstar “celebripups” and The Mayhew’s amazing TheraPaws dogs. As a bonus, there will be plenty of two legged celebrities in attendance too.

All the funds raised will go to The Mayhew Animal Home, so you have the comfort of knowing that your money is going towards helping dogs and cats escape a life of cruelty, abandonment and neglect.

The Mayhew Animal Home’s Events Officer, Zoe Sheehan, said: “We’re offering a very special evening in a top London venue. Not only can you come along to support the work of The Mayhew, but your dog can come and enjoy the evening too. It is a great event for our supporters and celebrity friends to hear about all that we have achieved and the amazing work we have done this year.”

“It would be great to see everyone there – so what are you waiting for, come and join us for one of the best and glamourous dog events of the year!”
