Furry 5k 2016

Posted: Thu, 30 June 2016, 16:37

Petworld are delighted to announce that our annual Furry 5K Walk is back and this year it’s taking place at 10am on Sunday July 24th in 6 locations across Ireland! The Furry 5K is a 5km sponsored walk with all proceeds going to Autism Assistance Dogs Ireland (AADI). This amazing charity provides highly trained assistance dogs for children with autism and their families.

The walk promises to be a fun morning full of laughter and atmosphere as animal lovers (and their dogs) come together for a great cause. Afterwards, there will be refreshments for both the two and four-legged participants back at Petworld.

There will also be a *Free Furry 5k T-shirt for the first 300 people that have registered and turn up for the walk across the 6 stores and a Free Goody Bag provided by Hill’s Science Plan Pet Foods, which will include a Water Drinker and Money Off Vouchers for Hill’s Science Plan dog food.

The walk registration fees, which can either be paid directly by clicking here... or by raising funds for the charity through a sponsorship card, are:

  • 1 person - €15.00
  • 2 persons - €20.00
  • Family - €30.00

100% of the funds raised go to Autism Assistance Dogs Ireland (AADI)
