THE MANCHESTER Dogs’ Home will be holding its fifteenth Annual Sponsored Dog Walk on Sunday 15th May 2005 at Debdale Park, Hyde Road, Gorton, Manchester from 10am.
All monies raised from the event will go towards helping the Manchester Dogs’ Home continue in their care for more lost and stray dogs than any other home in the country. The Home has been caring for and re-housing lost and stray dogs for over 100 years and they need your help, come rain or shine, to raise more money for the direct benefit of the dogs cared for.
A fun day out for all the family, the sponsored dog walk will take place over a 1 mile course in beautiful park land and a rosette will be provided for every dog involved. In addition, there will be lots of prizes and competitions, a raffle, a caricaturist and many more stalls to enjoy.
Though you can register on the day, an entry form for your dog/dogs to be entered can be obtained by contacting the Appeals Department at the Manchester Dogs’ Home on 0161 205 7136 between 9am and 5pm, Monday to Friday. Applications must be completed by Monday 9th May so you have plenty of time to get your friends and neighbours to sponsor your dog to walk the one mile circuit and give other dogs a chance!
