Manchester on the move 2001!
Eukanuba sponsors eleventh Annual Dogs Home Walk
THE ELEVENTH Annual Sponsored Dog Walk in aid of the Manchester Dogs Home, will be held on Sunday 15th April 2001 at Heaton Park. The event, sponsored by Eukanuba, attracts over 600 dogs and their owners and always proves to be a great day out. Most walkers opt to do the one mile circuit once, but some hardy pets and their owners manage over 20 laps!
There are prizes for the most money raised, most miles completed, and for the oldest dog taking part. Bric-a-Brac stalls and tombola are just a couple of the attractions.
After completing the walk, all dogs are awarded a rosette and a goody bag. There is always a vet in attendance and many happy reunions held.
To take part in the walk, ring 0161 205 7136 for details and a sponsor form, come and join in the fun!
The Home admits on average over 11,000 stray dogs each year. It costs £55 a week to care for a dog, so fundraising events such as the Walk are essential to the Homes survival.
Loving homes are desperately needed for the dogs in the Homes care; if you can help them please visit the Dogs Home and give a dog a chance. Contact Harpurhey (tel 0161 205 2874) and Warrington (tel 01925 269500).
