St Leonard's Hospice - Paws For A Cause event 2019

  • St Leonard's Hospice 185 Tadcaster Road England, YO24 1GL United Kingdom (map)

Calling all pooches... grab your leads, drag along your owners and join us for ‘Paws for a Cause’ - our annual sponsored dog walk! You’ll receive a certificate for your kennel, a doggy bag and a bandana just for taking part. There's a 4 mile route or if you’re a puppy or have young handlers, then you can opt for the gentler 1 mile route instead.

After the walk there will be all sorts of stalls and games to get involved in, starting from 12noon.

Check-in starts at 9:15am for the 4 mile route, with the walk beginning at 10am.
Check-in for the shorter 1 mile route starts at 10:30am with the walk beginning at 11:15am. Strut your stuff in one of the Fun Dog Classes which start at 12noon; Cutest Canine, Scruffiest Mutt, Waggiest Tail, Best Trick, Best Veteran (7 years +), Favourite Family (2 dogs minimum from same family, 14 legs maximum).
Entry costs £7 for the walk, with classes at £2 each.

Events fundraiser, Katie Ayrton, said “Paws for a Cause is a great way to support the Hospice and have a fun day out with your four-legged friend – whilst meeting lots of other dogs and dog owners! All dogs will receive a certificate for their kennel and a goody bag for taking part. I’d like to thank the Minster Veterinary Practice for sponsoring this event!"
