Petworld are delighted to announce that their annual Furry 5K Walk is taking place at 10am on Sunday 23rd July in seven locations across Ireland. The Furry 5K is a 5km sponsored walk with all proceeds going to Autism Assistance Dogs Ireland (AADI). This amazing charity provides highly trained assistance dogs for children with autism and their families.
This year promises to be really enjoyable with a fun and friendly atmosphere guaranteed. It gives animal lovers (and their dogs) from all over the country the chance to come together and support a really great cause. After the walk, there will be refreshments at Petworld for both the two and four-legged participants.
Petworld will be giving away a Free Furry 5k T-shirt for the first 350 people that have registered and turn up for the walk across all locations. Along with a free goody bag provided by Hill’s Science Plan Pet Foods including a water drinker and some money off vouchers for Hill’s Science Plan dog food.
