Sandton SPCA Muttwalk 2014

Sandton SPCA MuttWalk to take place again in 2014!

The 5km fun walk for the entire family, both the two-legged and four-leggedfamily members alike which helps garner much needed support and awareness for the Sandton SPCA and the vital part they play in animal welfare and education in our community.

For those without any four-legged family members who would still like to join in on the morning fun, there will be balloon dogs up for ‘adoption’ at the cost of R40 (with a percentage of the proceeds donated to the Sandton SPCA).

As with previous MuttWalks there will be water stations along the route in order to keep you as well as your “best friend” refreshed and hydrated to finish the walk. Should you, however, crave something more than just refreshment, there will be selection of food stalls as well to keep you well nourished. There will also be exciting prize draws after the walk and entertainment for the whole family.

Contact pr@sandtonspca.org.za to pre-enter (pre-entries close 21 November). You can also enter on race day.
