Grab your walking boots and join us this September as we walk across the beautiful Bath countryside to raise vital funds for the Home. This wooftastic event starts and finishes at Bath Cats & Dogs Home and covers several miles of the wonderful National Trust Bath Skyline.

Choose between a 2-mile or 5-mile route and if you're bringing your dog you will receive an exclusive Wag Walk doggie bandana.

Raise sponsorship to help even more animals in need - every pound raised will make a difference to an unwanted dog or cat in our care. Once signed up for the walk, join our JustGiving online fundraising group to see how it all comes together for the dogs and cats. » Just Giving Wag Walk group

Raising sponsorship

The entry fee covers the cost of administration and resources for the Wag Walk. To help raise more for Bath Cats & Dogs Home, please raise sponsorship for undertaking the walk - we will send you a fundraising pack to help you on your way.  

Raising much needed funds through sponsorship will pay for essential items during an animal's stay with us - like nutritious food, warm cosy bedding, toys for playtime and expert care from our team of trained and compassionate animal carers.
