Pounds for Hounds

It's almost that time of year for our annual Pounds for Hound summer walking event! 

Register your event

Last years event helped the Charity to raise nearly £4,000! This money has enabled us to continue to train and place our amazing assistance dogs with those of the HM Armed Forces and the Emergency Services who rely on their support. A massive thank you to everyone who took part and helped us raise some pounds for our hounds last year, it would be fantastic if we could exceed this amount this year!
