Big Walkies takes over Portsmouth

The RSPCA Solent Branch is hosting a sponsored dog walk - for pooches and their owners to take part in to show their support for the charity.

The walk - held in partnership with Vitality health and life insurance - will take place in Staunton Park on Sunday 25th September at 10:30am; there is a choice of a 3k or 5k walk. Dogs of all shapes and sizes are welcome and will even get their own bandana to wear on the day.

In May, 2,000 dogs and nearly 6,000 people enjoyed four flagship Big Walkies at Alexandra Palace, Crystal Palace, Bournemouth and Cardiff.

Throughout September and October there are 37 regional events taking place in September and October which you can sign up to here

RSPCA branch manager Rachel Hall said: “This is a great opportunity for the community to come together to get behind a good cause. We are a nation of animal lovers and this is a great opportunity to make lots of new doggy friends - and human ones too. We hope that on Sunday 25th September the whole of Portsmouth will be filled with calls of ‘Walkies’ and sights of wagging tails.”

To register simply turn up on the day! It costs £10 for one dog and £5 for any additional pooches - humans can come along free.
