Take a Hike Day

Walk for the cause you love! 

17th - 24th November 2020

Action for Dogs is proud to launch the fundraising challenge ‘Steps For Rescues’ to both encourage individuals to get out with their pet while raising vital funds which will help the animal rescue organisation of their choice.  

Support your favourite Animal Charity by walking 10000 steps with your dog.

It’s as easy as that!


November 17th, ”National Take A Hike Day” is the launch day of our dog walk fundraiser! The event will go on for the entire week, and we’re calling on all pet owners to come and join us. It’s a fun fundraiser for both you and your pet, where you’re able to work as a team and raise money for charity.


We’re asking our pawsome dog walking community to get out (safely and socially distanced) in their area and walk 10000 steps - be that in a field, a park or even around the block! Every step counts!

Complete our 10000 Steps for Rescues challenge and we will donate £10 to your chosen animal charity! 

Raise awareness and money for your favourite Rescuer! If you fancy taking on the challenge, it’s easy (and free!) We’re sure most of you are big dog walkers already, but if you’re a little worried - don’t worry, we’re in this together! Our staff are getting involved too! If we can do it - so can you!

Whether you fancy an adventure, a hike or even just a stroll, 10000 steps are easily achievable, especially knowing every step is going towards an animal in need!
