The Agria Dog Walk 2019 took place on Saturday 25th May and united housands of paws across six countries, all on one day! Our aim was to bring together those who share our love of dogs, to help raise funds for some wonderful rehoming organisations who support dogs in need of a forever home and we are thrilled with how many fellow dog lovers joined in!
Walks took place simultaneously in Denmark, Finland, France, Norway, Sweden, and in several locations in the UK! If you couldn't make it but would still like to support dogs without a home, you can still donate to one of the rescues who took part via the links below.
SAVE THE DATE! The Agria Dog Walk will take place on Saturday 16th May 2020!
Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home is one of Scotland's oldest Animal Welfare organisations, founded in 1883 by some citizens whose love of dogs motivated them to take action to alleviate the plight of strays roaming the streets of the city at that time. We would not be able to continue our work without supporters like you; donating money, spreading awareness of our charity, giving your time and raising vital funds for the animals in our care.
As well as walking, we'll have a whole of host of other fun activities happening on the day with food, stalls and entertainment at the Home, including dog competitions – so it’s set to be a fantastic day out for all ages! Sign up today to take part in the Agria Dog Walk along the beautiful beach next to the Home and help us raise vital funds to continue our work!
Multiple locations including Berkshire, Gloucestershire, Devon, West Midlands, Wiltshire, Hertfordshire, Peterborough, Kent, Nottinghamshire and more!
German Shepherd Rescue Elite (GSRE) has been formed with the aim of rescuing and re-homing German Shepherd Dogs and educating people on the breed. GSRE is backed up by a team of volunteers who strive to aid and promote responsible ownership of these amazingly intelligent and energetic dogs. We are committed to providing care and finding new homes for dogs in a variety of circumstances ; such as those with behavioural or health difficulties, often through rehabilitation in foster care until they go to their new home.
We are excited to be part of the Agria Dog Walk and will be gathering groups in several locations, click the sign up button below to view the full list and sign up today!
Tapeley Park and Gardens, Bideford, North Devon
K9focus is a North Devon dog rescue which is run entirely by volunteers who give their time freely. Our main aim is the rescue, rehabilitation and rehoming of abused and abandoned dogs, ensuring that they have a second chance of a loving home. Each year the rescue helps around 100 dogs find their forever couch and actively promotes responsible ownership within the community. The rescue also works with many people who have learning difficulties and/or personal issues - bringing dogs and people closer together.

The Wammy, Newcastle under Lyme (near Stoke-on-Trent)
We aim to care for and re-home as many un-wanted, stray or neglected Spaniels as we can as well as providing advice and support to current owners. Whatever the reason, CAESSR is here to help care for and rehome Cocker and English Springer Spaniels. We believe that all Spaniels deserve to be given every chance to live their full life regardless of their age or disability. This ethos is a costly one and means extra income has to be found to support these dogs. Every penny raised goes to vets fees, neutering, ongoing medical costs, kennel fees and raising awareness of the support we can offer.
Any spaniel that is in need of rehoming and has medical needs are covered for life by our charity. We hope you'll join us for our Agria Dog Walk and help us continue to support dogs who need us!
Sandwell Valley Country Park, West Bromich
CAARS' mission is to provide a safe and caring refuge for as many unwanted, abandoned and neglected pets as possible. We believe that pets should be part of the family, loved and cared for and giving love and care in return. As such, we seek to find appropriate, loving, caring, permanent homes for all our animals - many of which have special needs.
CAARS are very pleased and excited to have the opportunity to work with Agria Pet Insurance in this fantastic event! For each dog entered into the walk, Agria will donate £5 to CAARS rescue to help support our rescued pets. Please come along for a lovely, enjoyable hour (or 3). Enjoy some quality time, chat, stroll around the countryside and get fit too!
Cilgerran Wildlife Centre (Welsh Wildlife Centre), Pembrokeshire
We are a small, independent rescue charity, (as seen on T.V.), based on the beautiful west Wales coast, and our sole aim is to rescue and re-home domestic animals. We do this with the aid of a small band of dedicated volunteers and experts!
We would like to purchase some veterinary weighing scales & agility equipment so that we can help promote healthy, happy dogs and hope the funds raised from our Agria Dog Walk will help us with this project, sign up today!
Crosby Beach, Liverpool
We are passionate about helping as many dogs as we possibly can and ensuring they all go on to find loving forever homes. One of our biggest challenges is the sometimes extensive cost of veterinary treatment for dogs we take in and our charity, like many, does not receive any government funding, and so our supporters are crucial to being able to continue helping Boxers and other breeds too.
We are currently also fundraising for our own premises, which would allow us to support more dogs at once, so we hope you'll join us for our Agria Dog Walk to help!
East Carlton Country Park, Market Harborough, Leicestershire
Lainys Animal Rescue is based in Kettering and is run by a group of dedicated Volunteers, who rescue animals in Northamptonshire. We rescue, rehabilitate and re-home dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs and other animals. All the animals that come to us go into foster homes, where they can be assessed and looked after until they find their new home!
We hope you'll join us for our Agria Dog Walk and help us to continue the work we do, sign up on the link below!
Camber Sands, East Sussex
DoodleAid is a UK registered charity that rehomes and supports owners who find themselves in the difficult situation of having to give up their dog, often in very sad and unfortunate circumstances. We regularly provide foster care for these dogs before they can go to their forever homes, supporting them with best veterinary and behavioural care. Thanks to our supporters and donations we can continue to help these dogs in need.
We are delighted that the fabulous Camber Sands Doodle Friends is hosting the Doodleaid Agria Dog Walk, to raise as much for Doodleaid as possible! They are a doodle walking group based in East Sussex who you will regularly find chatting on the beach while the dogs - from Maltipoos to Labradoodles and everything in-between - go doodle-dashing. We hope you will join us all on this walk to support Doodleaid.
Pugney's Water Park, Wakefield
Our main aim is to provide a safe haven for dogs that are at high risk of being put to sleep and find them forever homes. We strongly believe that every dog deserves a chance. All dogs are treated with love and respect, and their welfare is our priority. Since we began in 2014 we have successfully rescued and rehomed over 480 dogs, each bringing joy and creating happy memories for their new families.
As a voluntarily run charity, people and donations are vital to our success, so we hope you'll join us for our Agria Dog Walk and help us make it a great success!
This event is so special to us and we want to raise as much as possible for these fantastic organisations! We would really appreciate it if you could help spread the word and round up more feet and paws to take part.
