A youngster and her friend enjoyed a behind the scenes tour of an animal shelter.
Nine-year-old Scarlett Ball, a pupil at Malcolm Sargent Primary School in Stamford won a colouring competition in Animals and You magazine.
As part of her entry, she drew a picture of her labradoodle dog Monty.
Her prize was a behind the scenes tour at Wood Green Animal Shelter, near Cambridge, and she took her friend Eve McClarnon. Our picture above shows the pair enjoying the day.
Scarlett’s mother Sarah said both girls had a fantastic time feeding and holding chickens, feeding greedy goats, meeting a giant rabbit called Harry among other things like making cats toys for the cattery and meeting a beautiful puppy husky called Kai.
The day was covered by the magazine’s photographer and the girls will feature in a future publication.
