Dog lovers from across North Wales are being invited to join a sponsored RSPCA “Mutt Strutt” in Llandudno.

The event, which takes place on 2 April, will see people and their four-legged companions undertake a six-mile walk around the Great Orme.

All monies raised will be donated to the Bryn-Y-Maen Animal Centre, to support their work helping animals rescued from cruelty and neglect. In 2016, Bryn-Y-Maen rehomed 90 dogs, 245 cats, 35 rabbits and 83 other animals.

Members of the public can register online, and will be provided with a sponsorship form. Walkers are advised to meet at the West Shore Cafe in Llandudno at 10.30am on the day, with the walk beginning half-an-hour later.

Chris Butler, from RSPCA Bryn-Y-Maen Animal Centre, said:

“The ‘Mutt Strutt’ promises to be an incredible day, and offers the chance for canine pals to be walked alongside some of the most breathtaking sites North Wales has to offer.

“It’d be amazing to see dogs from across North Wales walking along the six-mile route, with money raised helping us in our work to give animals a second chance of happiness. We found homes for an incredible 453 animals last year; but this work wouldn’t be possible without the generosity of the public.

“The ‘Strutt’ is taking place on 2 April – and those interested can sign-up online, or contact the Centre directly on 0300 123 0745. Those without a canine companion can also get involved – and we’d love as many people as possible to walk with us, raise money and enjoy themselves.”
