Walking to the moon
This Saturday you can be a part of the new fundraiser for the SPCA— Walk your dog to the moon!
This exciting new fundraiser will run for the month of November all over New Zealand with your local official launch event of a group dog walk at Ferguson Park this Saturday.
For walk your dog to the moon, Kiwis and their pups unite to walk the distance to the moon— an impressive 385,500km— in a bid to raise money for animals in need.
A registration fee for each applicant applies of $12. This includes your doggy pedometer, doggy banana for your pup to wear and a welcome pack. Sign-ups on the day are more than welcome, otherwise get online prior and register at www.walktothemoon.co.nz
We will begin our walk at 10am, departing from Ferguson park enjoying the walk along the boardwalk to Kulim Park and then returning to the start/ finish line. There will be a barbecue and cold drinks on sale. Of course there’s plenty of water for your dogs at a couple of points along the walk and at the finish line. Dogs are to be kept strictly on leads at all time to ensure the safety and enjoyment of everyone attending, and please remember to be a tidy kiwi and pick up after your dog.
Each year the demand for SPCA support grows, with more animals being brought to the Tauranga shelter for care.
“Walk Your Dog to the Moon is a fantastic initiative which encourages a healthy lifestyle for both humans and their dogs while raising much needed money for SPCA,” Tauranga SPCA Inspectors Jason and Anna say. With local events taking place across the country and competitions, SPCA aims to raise at least $150,000 nationwide through Walk Your Dog to the Moon.
All funds donated will be used to directly help rescue, rehabilitate and rehome animals. So Moonwalkers, get your pooches ready, and join us for a group dog walk this Saturday.
