Sponsored again this year by Petworld, Dogathon is taking place on Sunday May 27th along the Prom in Salthill. A charity walk for dogs and their owners, the walk will start at Southpark at 12 noon. Following the previous success of Dogathon, COPE Galway are hoping that more dogs and their owners will take part in this years event. Dogathon is a great opportunity for children and adults to have a fun day out with their dogs and to raise vitally needed funds for COPE Galway’s work with the most isolated in the community.
In addition to the walk we will also have doggie activities including games and demonstration on dog training. We are also planning a Dogathon Trade Show with dog companies exhibiting their wares and offering advice on pet care. There will be competitions and raffles with prizes for the most imaginatively dressed and best “doggie” fundraiser. All dogs who register for Dogathon will receive a doggie bag of goodies and their owners will receive a COPE Galway t-shirt. Registration is free and each dog owner is asked to raise sponsorship from friends and family on behalf of their dog. We are asking each dog owner to raise as much as they can through sponsorship to support COPE Galway’s work in Galway. When you register you will receive information on Dogathon along with a sponsorship pack.
