What a turn out we had at this year’s Walk in the Park 2017! Held again at the beautiful, picturesque Walsall Arboretum on June 11th it saw hundreds of dog owners come together to raise vital funds for stray dogs in need.
We had in total over 260 dogs and over 430 people attend this year’s event which is a record high! A fun filled morning with a gentle 3km walk through the park then you can come and soak up the atmosphere at the finish line. With lots to see and do including a Tombola, BDH Trailer – so you can buy some bits for yourself or your best friends (Dogs of course), BBQ, Coffee van, Sweet Treats stand and of course our sponsors Ancol Pet Products.
We thoroughly enjoyed the whole event and absolutely loved seeing so many gorgeous dogs and familiar faces. Seeing so many dogs together, enjoying each other’s company, making new friends and eating lots of scrumptious doggie cupcakes is truly worthwhile! We would just like to thank everyone who attended the event, with your help we were able to raise over £2,800 for the dogs in our care – which is a phenomenal amount of money to have raised in just a few hours. So a big thank you to you all.
These events wouldn’t be able to take place without our trusted volunteers so also a big thank you to everyone who helped out on the stands, all our marshalls, set up, organising, stall holders who attended on the day but also to Ancol Pet Products who support this event and who also enjoy coming to help on the day too.
We were overwhelmed with how many of you came out to support our stray dogs and we hope you had just as much fun as we did! We rescued over 3,200 stray dogs last year and all the money raised will be helping every dog that comes through our doors.
