Love was definitely a four-legged word on the All Dogs Matter Valentines Day Dog Walk on Sunday in Hampstead.
Organised by North London Rescue & Rehoming Charity All Dogs Matter, the annual Valentines Day Dog Walk attracted over 200 dog lovers from all over London to celebrate Valentines Day in four-legged style and raise much-needed funds for the charity.
Owners and dogs gathered at the Garden Gate, Hampstead before setting off on a walk around the Hampstead Heath. The event has become a Valentines Day favourite amongst animal lovers, many of whom who have adopted dogs from the charity themselves.
Meeting many of the lucky rescue dogs who have been adopted and talking to their owners, it was clear that it’s not only the dogs who have been lucky in love! The love that these rescue dogs give back was written all over each and every one of the proud owners faces we spoke to.
Ex-All Dog Matter Dogs Who’ve Been Lucky in Love…
As always, it was definitely a dress to impress kind of occasion…for the dogs not necessarily the humans that is.
Also hoping to impress were Linda and Rosie, two adorable rescue pups looking for their forever homes. Events like these give those thinking of adopting a chance to get to know some of the dogs and see them in a social environment. It no doubt helps that both Linda and Rosie are ridiculously cute, who could resist those faces….
In the first 6 weeks of this year alone, All Dogs Matter has already re-homed 50 dogs but now have another 33 waiting for their forever homes. The Valentines Day Dog Walk raised over £780 which will go directly to supporting the great work the All Dogs Matter team do and help more dogs in need.
We couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate Valentines Day than by sharing the rescue #doggylove….Belinha agrees.
