Help make neglected dogs happy again by taking part in a scenic dog walk around Shibden Park

RSPCA Halifax, Huddersfield & District Branch host Big Walkies at Halifax park

The RSPCA Halifax, Huddersfield & District Branch are hosting their third Big Walkies – a fundraising sponsored dog walk.

The 3k walk will take place in the grounds of Shibden Park, Halifax on Sunday, September 24 at 11am.

There will also be a fun dog show to take part in, with stalls and games after the walk.

All sponsorship raised will go towards providing care, training and rehabilitation to the current – and future – animals looking for new homes in Calderdale and Kirklees.

RSPCA Events Coordinator Fay Gibbons said: "We always have such fun with the local community and it’s an event that really helps us raise awareness of the amazing animal welfare work our branch does and gives us the opportunity to raise vital funds to support this work too."
