Are you and your dog going to walk the Big Dog Walk for charity?
Many of our animal charities have missed out on much-needed funds during the COVID-19 pandemic and need your help to continue their vital work. We're hoping as many people as possible get their dogs walking to raise money for other dogs and good causes
The Big Dog Walk Series organisers are super excited to welcome the Dogs Trust as their Official Charity Partner this year, so if you don't already have a cause close to your heart, please consider supporting them.
Dogs Trust really needs our support as they have been receiving an average of 50 calls a day from desperate and caring owners needing to hand over their dog. Many families are battling to care for their pets as they are facing financial hardship and health challenges during the pandemic and there are a lot of dogs at risk.
Dogs Trust needs to be ready to offer those dogs safe and warm shelter, urgent medical care, nutritious meals, special training, and the support and love they will be missing, but their resources are stretched more than ever.
Whether you’re walking the 2k, 5k or 10k, it’s a great opportunity to do something you both love whilst making a difference.
