An animal centre in Radcliffe is urging dog walkers to put their best paw forward in a bid to raise vital funds for the centre.
RSPCA Radcliffe Animal Centre in Nottingham road is calling on animal-lovers and their four-legged friends to join them on their annual Hike for Hounds on Sunday, October 1.
Animal Care Deputy Manager, said: “Our annual Hike for Hounds is a fantastic event that brings like-minded people with a passion for animals and walking together. We walk in a group chatting all the way. Not only is it a great way to make new friends, view the spectacular local scenery it also raises much needed funds for the Animal Shelter that provides shelter veterinary care and rehabilitation to Nottinghamshire animals.”
The event – which kicks off at 9.45am from RSPCA Radcliffe – will see resident dogs from the centre take to the great outdoors as part of the event.
To enter the hike participants will have to pay a £10 registration fee, which is for one dog and one person, and will include a hearty-breakfast bap as well as a goody bag.
Walkers can choose between a 9-mile hike around some of Nottinghamshire’s best green lands or a shorter 4.5mile route and you don’t have to be a dog owner to join in with the fun.
Those who want to take part in the event should contact Evie Holmes Social Media and Marketing officer for their registration pack.
For anyone who wants to support the event but doesn’t fancy the hike they can alternatively sponsor one of our centre dogs to do the walk by texting HIKE08 to 70070.
