Step Up for Rescue Pets. Walk or run, your distance, your way!

Starts: Thursday 1st April
Ends: Friday 30th April
Walk or run, your distance, your way!


We challenge you to shake off the winter blues and get a spring in your step throughout April. Set a personal challenge - a walk or a run, every day or one big push - you choose your distance, your way!

Ask your friends and family to sponsor you, it will really help you get those miles done and all we ask is a small target of £100. You'll be surprised how easy it is. 

All of our amazing fundraisers will get support from our fundraising team, receive a Bath Cats & Dogs Home t-shirt to proudly wear, plus a medal and certificate once you have completed your challenge.

Why are we asking you to Step Up?

The pandemic lockdowns have put a big strain on the Home, with all our major fundraising events cancelled last year, and this year too. 

Step Up... for cats like Marshmallow who needs weekly baths to fight a parasite infection. Step Up... for dogs like Sadie who found safety and security for the first time at the Home.
