What’s it all about?

Mixed breeds, mutts and township specials will proudly strut their stuff at the 13th uMngeni SPCA/Hill’s Township Dog Show, at Howick West Soccer Stadium, KwaZulu-Natal on Sunday 11 October.

This is South Africa’s oldest ‘township dog show’ and hundreds of dogs are expected to compete for top honours. Breed is irrelevant, the judges will be looking for good health, friendly behaviour and a special bond with the owner. All shapes, sizes and breed combinations can enter, although the show is exclusively for dogs from local communities. Every entrant will attend an on-site veterinary clinic and be de-wormed, dipped and vaccinated against rabies before entering the show ring.

Getting there

Gates open at 9:00am. Entry is free, although donations to the SPCA will be welcome. Every entrant will be given a new collar, lead, bowl and blanket. Prizes include kennels, certificates, rosettes and Hill’s, the most trusted pet food brand in South Africa. For more info visit or contact uMngeni SPCA on 033 330 4557 / 076 301 4827or email
