The event was due to take place this weekend at the Woodlands Farm rehoming centre, on York Road, with raffles and tombolas as well as festive refreshments.

The field used for the event, along with the temporary car park, are both waterlogged making them unsafe to use.

Sarah Hey, Dogs Trust Leeds' supporter relations officer and organiser of the event, said: “Unfortunately we have had to take the decision to cancel the Santa Paws Weekend due to concerns relating to the waterlogged car parking areas.
