Movie ‘pawdience’ breaks world record
The previous world record was only set last year.

Over 200 dogs attended film screening in Los Angeles.

Hundreds of dogs in Los Angeles have come together to break the Guinness World Record for the most dogs attending a film screening.

A grand total of 219 dogs attended a special outdoor screening of PAW Patrol: The Mighty Movie held at Autry Museum in Griffith Park on Sunday, 24 September.

Michael Empric, an official adjudicator for Guinness World Records, also attended in order to confirm that a new record had been set.

The previous record of 199 dogs was set in October last year at a screening of A Dog’s Way Home at a drive-in movie theatre
along Route 66 in Illinois.

In a statement published on YouTube, Mr Empric said: "I was so excited to adjudicate this Guinness World Records attempt for most dogs attending a film screening. It’s not every day I get to enjoy an 'Officially Amazing' time at the movies with hundreds of furry friends.”

Hosted by TV presenter Kevin Frazier, the screening was organised by Paramount Pictures in collaboration with Street Food Cinema and the non-profit animal welfare organisation Best Friends Animal Society.

Brittany Thorn, executive director of Best Friends Animal Society in Los Angeles, said: “We are thrilled to have worked with the team at Paramount Pictures to break the Guinness World Record for most dogs at a film screening.

“I hope people reading about this milestone will be inspired to get out and adopt.”

Duchess of York stars in charity calendar

The National Foundation for Retired Service Animals (NFRSA) has released its charity calendar for 2024, featuring Sarah, Duchess of York and a selection of the retired service animals the charity supports.

The 12 images were taken by animal photographer Gerry Slade and include retired police dogs and horses, a former border force detector dog, and a retired fire investigation and urban search and rescue dog.

Sarah, Duchess of York, who is a patron of the charity, appears alongside retired police dog Jessie in the photograph for December.

So far this year, the charity has given more than 40,000 in grants to help former service animals with their veterinary care. After retirement, they receive no financial support from the Government and obtaining affordable insurance can be difficult.
