PDSA at Crufts

The greatest dog show in the world is back! Join us at Crufts this year at the NEC Birmingham and help us spread the word about PDSA.

Crufts includes some amazing dog displays and skill shows including flyball, agility and obedience. Each day of the festival focuses on different breed groups and there will also be a 'discover dogs' area where visitors can meet over 200 breeds of dog.

We need volunteers to help us man our PetWise vehicle where we'll be talking to visitors of the show about the amazing work we do. We need volunteers for different roles:
