We are very excited to announce the very first series of Pets As Therapy Sponsored Dog Walks coming to locations all over the UK this April Saturday 14th 2018 starting from 10am.

PAT volunteers all over the UK have told us they love nothing more than to meet up with friends and fellow volunteers to walk their dogs and perhaps stop for a drink somewhere along the way! We’ve recently teamed up with passionate pet lovers: Orvis who annually donate 5% of their pre-tax profits to protecting the natural world and they were only too happy to help.

Orvis have offered to support this exciting event by offering use of their 18 stores nationwide to PAT Teams (friends and family) as a meeting place before and after our Sponsored PAT Walks and collecting donations from their customers. There will be 18 walks taking place around the country in the locations listed below.

We’re asking Volunteers to help us raise money in sponsorship and we’ll be rewarding the best fundraiser with an Orvis memory-foam dog bed, customised with your dog’s name and full of Arden Grange goodies!

Most importantly, we hope to raise awareness of the fantastic work done by our volunteers in care homes, schools, hospitals and prisons – and to use the opportunity to encourage others, joining us on the walk, to become a Pets As Therapy volunteer.
