    Story

    2018 saw Vita Canis Style to Rescue , the first-ever charity grooming competition for rescue dogs in the UK. We were so happy to be able to raise almost £4500 for the rescues attending. The second Style to Rescue took place on Sunday 28th April 2019 and for this competition we raised just over £7500. How amazing is that!!!

    Our motto is “helping those who cannot help themselves” and unfortunately, rescue dogs who need this help are everywhere!

    I really want to double it for 2020. Can you help?

    The money we gave to the participating rescue centres were spent on surgeries, veterinary care, food, etc.

    Here are some feedbacks form the rescue centres:

    2018 saw the first Style to Rescue grooming competition organised by Vita Canis and Many Tears was asked if they would like to take part. This is a grooming competition with a difference as groomers have no idea what dog they will groom until they arrive and select an envelope. Dogs are either rescue dogs which are still looking for homes or those already adopted. As a local supporter I took up the challenge and sorted a number of dogs to attend. We had a great day, raised money for the rescue and were delighted to be asked to attend again in 2019.

    What can I say, 2018 was great, 2019 was absolutely fantastic. Bigger, better, more groomers, more dogs, more stalls, a great atmosphere and most importantly an impressive amount raised for the rescues which attended. Everyone was so friendly and the groomers really took the needs of the dog into consideration, giving them regular breaks if necessary, to cope with the needs of nervous dogs or those with physical problems.

    The hall had a real buzz to it all day, it was fascinating to watch the grooming and the groomers were so supportive of each other. The judges were very approachable, putting groomers at their ease and were genuinely interested in the dogs. And the dogs, well they were just superstars!

    Many Tears Animal Rescue is a rescue which mainly takes ex-breeders many of which need specialist veterinary care for eye and heart problems, liver shunts to name a few of the problems. Therefore they rely on fundraising and donations to allow them to ensure each dog receives the care it requires. Thank you to the team at Vita Canis for asking us to take part in Style to Rescue and I can’t wait to see what you do in 2020.

    “This was our first time at Style to Rescue - long drive for us and I must admit to being a tad concerned as to how the little rescues would cope with such a long day and busy environment.

    Upon arrival I was struck by the vast number of vehicles in the car park and people milling around - how would these 3 vulnerable babies cope?

    I entered the hall somewhat warily - no need! Despite the many vendors, spectators, competitors and dogs what instantly struck me was the overall calm that pervaded the venue. We walked in to join our colleagues and they noticed the surprise in my face. This event remained the same the whole day. Calm, welcoming, happy, respectful but above all, compassionate. I cannot stress enough to anyone considering coming along next year - this is one if not the, most compassionate and genuinely caring event I have attended. Of course, everyone wants to win but somehow that didn’t come across. By that I mean, the grooming competitors and the Judges were only concerned with the welfare of the dogs, and desperately concerned that the owners were happy with the end result.

    I wondered into the ring on a couple of occasions to see groomers doing their bit with nervous dogs in their laps or being cuddled, a couple of paralyzed dogs receiving so much affection. I was relieved I had tissues in my pocket asI found the day really rather emotional.

    The organisation was superb, so much to juggle and never a raised voice or cross expression.

    I had told myself, as you do, to rein back on the plastic.........How could I with so many first class stalls and stands, I went home with more scissors, shampoos, lotions and potions, toys and treats.

    I mustn’t forget to mention the catering - just gorgeous real chilli and again, service with a smile.

    I cannot recommend this event highly enough. If you are a groomer, aspiring groomer, rescue or foster home come along, in fact anyone come along and spectate it really is a super day out and a super cause.

    We arrived home very late, tired but very happy and the three little fluffies looked beautiful and had had a wonderful time with their very talented groomers.

    Thank you to everyone for giving us such a memorable day out and thank you from Poodles from Portugal for your generous donation which will go towards helping fluffies in the U.K. and from Portugal”.
