IT'S time to dust off your collars and leads and head along once more to Red Collar Rescue's third annual Family Fun Day.

Event organiser Tracey Amos said the event was an important day for the rescue shelter who save death row dogs.

"We would really love to raise $15,000 this year,” Mrs Amos said.

The shelter's first event in 2015 raised $7500, while last year's hit $13,000.

Mrs Amos said funds from the event gave the shelter more power to help more dogs.

"There's been dogs this year we've been able to save that we normally maybe wouldn't have been able to,” she said.

There will be plenty of fun, food and action to entertain families who head along to help make a difference.

"Come along, have a good day, bring the kids, bring the wife, bring the husband or whoever you need to,” Mrs Amos said.

"There'll be lots of fun, lots of rides, a jumping castle and we've got a super slide this year.

"There'll be dog parades, dancing, food stalls to suit all tastes from vegan through to sweet and meaty and all the above.”

Mrs Amos said there would be around 50 stalls.
