of dog walkers and their pets joined a sponsored 'Mutt Strut' at
Highbridge's Apex Park on Sunday (April 9th).
annual 2.5 mile walk was held in aid of the RSPCA's North Somerset
Branch, with over £1,000 expected to have been raised.
from Brent Knoll RSPCA, which oversaw the event, told Burnham-On-Sea.com:
"It was a great success once again - we had a good number of
people with their pets taking part and thank everyone for their
those taking part was a rehomed dog who was very shy at the start
of the event, but by the end was enjoying being with the people
and other dogs - to the extent that he didn't want to leave by the
end of the day!
dog, Kelly, that is suffering from a terminal blood cancer was taking
part for what could be its final time, making it an emotional event
for the owner.
much of the walk some dogs were walked by the people who will be
rehoming them. This is part of their 'getting to know each other'
programme and, as this was a sociable occasion for the dogs, it
helps them to be comfortable with their new homes.
