Blind Date

Wednesday 26th February 2020, 5pm-8pm
Rehoming Centre, Benton North Farm, Benton Lane, NE12 8EH

We are holding an event to hopefully help you find your perfect pet and set you up on a wonderful blind-date that could potentially lead to many happy years in a perfect partnership.

The evening event will include a one-to-one consultation with our rehoming team where they will take a look at your life-style and advise and educate on what pet they think will fit you perfect! You will then enjoy a blind-date with your featured furry friend to see how you get along.

If you are interested, please email us at bnf@dogandcatshelter.com to request a form. Once received, we ask you fill out the form and return it to us asap. Our rehoming team will then have a chance to go through the form to see which of our animals would best match your lifestyle before you come in on the evening. You will also be issued a time slot for your one to one consultation.

Our coffee shop will be open until 8pm, with cakes and traybakes only 99p with any tea or coffee.

All we ask is that you come along with an open-mind and a sense of fun!
