Calendar announced to raise funds for the district’s stray dogs!

The Paws and Pick it Up calendar features the dogs voted for by more than 2,500 people earlier this year to find the furry face of the campaign.

Winning dog Lola is the cover star with the other finalists also featured in the calendar which is on sale across the district for just £6.

The anti-dog fouling focus was part of the popular Don’t be a Waster – Reduce, Reuse, Respect campaign. More than 60 dog owners pledged to be responsible dog owners and entered their dogs in our competition to find the face of our campaign.

Cllr Richard Musgrave, Executive member and lead councillor with responsibility for housing, leisure, health and culture, commented, “This is a great way to raise money for the district’s stray dogs.

“As well as featuring the most popular dogs from the competition the calendar also features many other dogs that were rehomed with the help of our community warden Keith Armstrong working with Woodhaven Kennels.”

All the profits from the sale of the calendars will help stray dogs in our district – the calendars are on sale at:

  • Selby Times office, The Crescent, Selby
  • Riccall Regen Centre, Landing Lane
  • Tadcaster Town Council, The Ark, Kirkgate
  • Selby District Council, Civic Centre, Doncaster Road
  • Selby Leisure Centre & Summit Indoor Adventure

The winner of the Paws and Pick it Up competition was Lola, pictured here with her family, Danielle Sheldon and her daughters, Keeley and Brooke.
