)-- The annual Sandton SPCA / Hill’s Mutt Walk is back by popular demand after a successful first year in 2012. The morning walk will be held on Sunday the 14th of April 2013 at the Field and Study Recreation Centre, Louise Avenue (closest corner 14th Street), Parkmore.
The Sandton SPCA / Hill’s Mutt Walk is a family-friendly 5km awareness fun walk for animal lovers and their dogs - enjoy an outing with the four legged family members whilst helping the Sandton SPCA to continue their vital animal welfare and educational work.
Debbie Last from Hill’s Pet Nutrition says her team thoroughly enjoy being part of the event, especially the interaction with hundreds of fellow dog lovers, “We love this event as it gives people the opportunity to spend quality time with their pets and, at the same time, raises funds for the SPCA. Our mission at Hill’s is to help enrich and lengthen the special relationship between people and their pets; MuttWalk is a great way of doing just that.”
The cost per entry is R 60 per adult, R 30 per child and R 20 per dog, with all profits going directly to the Sandton SPCA. The canine entrants will each receive a bandana and the first 500 people to enter will each receive a "doggie" (goodie) bag sponsored by Hill’s. For those of you who don’t have a dog of your own, you are still welcome to join the walk; there will also be balloon dogs on sale, supplied by Daffodil Concepts, to walk for just R 35 (with a percentage going to the Sandton SPCA).
The route will feature water stations for both people and their pooches to cool down along the way, as well as a good selection of food stalls. Sandton SPCA / Hill’s Mutt Walk will also be hosting lucky draws and children’s entertainment at the Start/Finish. The Hill’s team will be on hand to answer your pet nutrition questions and the Sandton SPCA’s Mobile Clinic will be there to provide animal first aid. Petsure South Africa has also sponsored all the dogs participating in the walk, free insurance for the duration of the walk from start to finish.
