THE ANNUAL Blue Cross Fete raised a staggering £8970.78, blitzing the £7,500 collected in 2012.
Organisers say, as well as the fantastic total, a lot of old faces returned to see the staff and the day was a lot busier than previous years.
Activities included the popular dog show with nine fun classes, the Grand Parade of previous Blue Cross rescues, birds of prey and flyball displays and a variety of stalls.
Many visitors saw the information available about animals looking for homes and came back on the Sunday.
That resulted in one of the centre's longest stay dogs - male Staffie Bosco - being rehomed.
A spokesperson said it was a fabulous day.
"We can’t get over it as not all the monies are in yet.
"It really is incredible and means so much to us and the animals that we care for."
