Dogs and their owners are being encouraged to get together and go for a walk to raise money for the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
We are all being encouraged to take part in the inaugural ‘Wonderdog Walk’, by getting together with friends on October 29 and enjoying a stroll with our dogs, then throwing-in a few dollars to help raise money for breast cancer research.
Headed up by celebrity vet Dr Katrina Warren, dog-owners all across the country will come together and hit the streets with their four-legged friends to help raise money for this amazing organisation.
“It’s an excuse to spend time with your buddies and help win the fight against breast cancer,” Katrina says.
Dr Katrina has long been a supporter of the National Breast Cancer Foundation, and says there is a clear link between wellbeing and owning a dog.
“I have seen time and time again how the unconditional love and companionship of a dog can help people during life’s darkest periods,” she says. “And that includes cancer treatment.”
“Our dogs are valued members of the family and we know the more time you spend training and socialising them, the closer your bond will be.
“All we are asking is for dog owners to organise a gathering, small or large, collect a few dollars, then donate the money via our Fundraising Page. It’s that simple!
“So please, grab some mates and take your dog for a walk then throw in a few dollars. It’s a fun way to show support for your four-legged friend and the National Breast Cancer Foundation.”
