Bark And Bake Campaign Launches To Kick-Start National Pet Month

31 March 2015    11:00

The Kennel Club Charitable Trust invites dog lovers nationwide to take part in its new Bark and Bake campaign during National Pet Month (1st April - 4th May), by holding a Bark and Bake Sale to raise money to help make a difference for dogs.

The Kennel Club is holding its own bake sale on 8th April and staff will be baking dog-themed goods for both dogs and their owners to raise funds for the Kennel Club Charitable Trust.

The Kennel Club Charitable Trust funds a wide variety of work ranging from supporting research into canine diseases, the promotion of support dogs and funding for dog welfare organisations, all of which give dogs a healthier, happier life.

To arrange your own Bark and Bake sale, please visit for downloadable promotional material and recipes. Make sure to share your pictures of your dog-themed cakes through the Kennel Club's Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages alongside the following hashtags #barkandbake on the day of your bake sale.

Mike Townsend, Chairman of the Kennel Club Charitable Trust, said: "Our pets play such a crucial part in our lives - they really are part of the family. National Pet Month promotes responsible pet ownership as well as raising awareness of the role, value and contribution to society of companion animals.

"The Bark and Bake campaign hopes to combine people's love of baking and their love of their canine companions. We encourage as many people to get involved as possible and help us make a difference for dogs."
