Petworld is sponsoring a National Furry 5k Charity Walk, benefiting a number of local charities on Sunday September 16 from 10am to 12pm, at Petworld locations across Ireland. The Petworld Furry 5k Walk will be a fantastic, fun event, combined with the opportunity to help really worthwhile charities.
The free event will take place at five Petworld stores – Castlebar (Turlough ), Athlone, Mullingar, Santry and Galway (Terryland ) and will benefit five local charites: Athlone & West Midlands Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, Western Care, Friends of Animals, Dogs Aid and Madra.
“Every summer, the staff in our Petworld stores get involved in a big fundraiser for charity,” said Stuart Cooper, the operations manager for Petworld. “Our Furry 5K will be a great day out, and we are encouraging all dog owners to come into any of the participating Petworld Stores to pick up a sponsorship card.”
Participants are invited back to the Petworld stores after the walk, for light refreshments and a chance to meet representatives from the various charities and learn how the funds raised are used to benefit the local community. There will also be free treats for the furry walkers of course!
