MANCHESTER DOGS Home will be holding its 12th annual Sponsored Dog Walk - the homes major fundraising event of the year - at Debdale Park, Gorton, Manchester on Sunday 12th May from 10 am until 4pm.
For the past 11 years, this event has been held in Heaton Park. It is hoped that the change of venue will give dog lovers in the Gorton, Stockport, Hyde, Denton and Ashton areas of Greater Manchester the opportunity to join in this major event - as well as our loyal supports who have participated for the last 11 years.
The one mile course will inlcude a walk around the tranquil Debdale reservoirs as well as the park itself. Each dog will receive a rosette and bag of dog food. A vet will also be in attendance.
In addition to the dog walk, there will be lots of free competitions and prizes for the children, a caricaturist, stalls selling doggy-related items and refreshments.
