SPCA fund raiser needs your dog too

2011-06-24 00:00

ARE you and your dog getting ready for the Weekend Witness 1 000 Paws Walk for SPCA?

Sunday July 10 will see hundreds of families and their dogs enjoying a wonderful day in the stunning grounds of Hilton College.

There will be entertainment for the children including Simba and Sharkie. For adults there will be line dancing, a pipe band, dancing with dogs and great dog agility demos followed by a chance to try the family pet around the course. Two township dog training teams will give displays of their prowess.

A tea garden, beer garden and the Azalea Rotarians’ mobile grill will keep hunger at bay.

An easy two-kilometre walk takes you and your dog around the sports fields of Hilton College. For those who want slightly more of a challenge, the four-kilometre route goes through Hilton Estate’s plantations overlooking the Umgeni Valley and Albert Falls Dam.

The cost is R25 per person over six and R10 per dog. Pay at the gate, which opens at 9 am and register to walk, starting at 10 am.

Alternatively enter online on www.witness.co.za and bring your printout with you. Hills, Frontline and other sponsors will be giving out a limited number of gift packs to dogs that have registered and completed their walks.

This event raises much-needed money for the SPCAs in Mooi River, Pietermaritzburg and uMngeni (Howick), to continue and expand their prevention of cruelty to animals. Fantastic prizes will be awarded from Woodridge Lodge, Old Kilgobbin and Brookfields to the three highest sponsorships raised. Download or collect a sponsorship form to enable your friends, family, or colleagues to sponsor your walk.

Other prizes have been most generously donated by Mount Champagne, Karkloof Canopy Tours, Granny Mouse, Piggly Wiggly and Dragon Mountain Relishes plus a huge booze hamper and lots more. With or without a dog this event is a “must do”. Enquiries to Pam on 033 330 7561, or Heather on 033 330 5299.
