Amanda helps raise £1million for Abandoned Dogs
Amanda Holden is all smiles as it was announced recently that her involvement in a campaign to help raise awareness of the nation’s abandoned dogs helped raise over £1million.
Amanda and her rescue dog Fudge showed their support to The Pedigree Adoption Drive by launching The Dog Tag Team, the UK’s first ever sponsored dog walking relay along the famous Land’s End to John O’Groats trail. The pair kicked of the walk by hiking the first part of the route from Lands End in March. From there, dogs and their owners walked individual sections of the route through cities such as Bristol, Newcastle, Nottingham, York, Leicester and Inverness to help raise funds and awareness for less fortunate dogs.
Of the walk that finished in John O’Groats in May, Amanda said, “Fudge and I were honoured to be involved in The Pedigree Adoption Drive this year as it is a cause so close to our hearts. The Dog Tag Team has helped not only to raise awareness of the issue of dog abandonment, but has also helped to promote responsible dog ownership. It is fantastic to think that because of everyone’s generosity and support, hundreds of dogs will be helped.”
The campaign, which aims to raise awareness of dog abandonment in the UK, has provided nearly 300 charity grants as a result of on-pack donations, sales of campaign merchandise and through The Pedigree Adoption Drive Dog Tag Team.
