All breed of dogs who have been good this year are very welcome and will receive a present. Any dogs who are worried Santa may not visit this year because they haven't been quite so good are also very welcome. Hector’s Santa is very forgiving.

    Hayley will be a giving a talk at 11am about Hector’s busy year and will talk about some of the dogs Hector’s have rescued, Hector’s own kennel build which we are so very proud of and the dogs that were rescued from Spain this year. There will also be an opportunity to ask Hayley questions or share your stories of your Happy Hector’s Hounds.

    We will of course also have stalls for you to browse and refreshments and festive food to enjoy.
