We recently heard about two great events to add to your Spring London Dog Event Calendar, the RSPCA Big Walkies 2016! The events take place in May and the wooftastic news is that this year, there are two London events – one for South and North London.
South London is up first with the Big Walkies South London at Crystal Palace Park on 14 May. Then the RSPCA team take to the road for the Big Walkies Cardiff on 15th May, Bournemouth on 21st May and then back to London for the Big Walkies North London at Alexandra Palace Park on 22 May.
As the saying goes, for most of us a dog is man’s best friend. However, sadly too many dogs don’t get to experience this and are subjected to cruelty and neglect throughout their lives. This is where events like these are important to raise awareness and much-needed funds to help dogs and other animals who need a second chance.
How it works: The RSPCA Big Walkies 2016 are sponsored dog walks and on the day you can choose to complete a 3k or 5k route. Last year, the events raised more than £100,000 and this year, the walks are even bigger and better. Paws crossed that the amount the walks raise is even bigger this year too!
How to Register: It only costs £10 to enter one dog, £5 for any additional pooches and humans can come along for free. Register here. #BigWalkies
