Did someone say night walkies?!

Make a shelter dog’s day when you make your dog’s night with Night Walkies! On 29 Feb 2020 gather all your friends, family and pups together for this one of a kind dog night walk, in aid of the Animal Anti-Cruelty League. Every dog will receive an LED light-up collar so we will literally be lighting up the streets for a good cause!

Enjoy a + – 2.7 km night walk with your dog(s), beginning at sunset at Roosevelt High School and strolling through the leafy suburbs of Emmarentia and Greenside. The route will loop back to the school where you and your furry friends can enjoy a little pup fest! Imagine a sea of lit up pups and wagging tails and you have an idea of what Night Walkies has in store for you, all for charity!

This Jozi night walk is an unforgettable get-together for dog owners, and their dogs, filled with ‘paw’some activities, delicious food stands, pamper stations and live entertainment. You can even get your pup a free health check on-site.

Being a pet insurance provider, we have love for all animals, however we are especially passionate about the care and protection of vulnerable animals that have been abandoned. Fortunately, we have some amazing organizations in South Africa like the Animal Anti-Cruelty League (AACL), that dedicate their lives to care for those who have been abandoned or abused. The reality is that this is an expensive responsibility. The AACL are solely reliant on funding from corporates such as and ordinary South Africans.

 Please help us make a real difference – by joining us for the inaugural Night Walkies. An event that promises to be fun-filled and family-friendly, all in aid of celebrating our love for our furry best friends and more importantly, raising much-needed funds for the AACL to continue doing the great work they do each day.’, says David Roache, Managing Director.

There will be water stations along the route, keeping your pooches hydrated and refreshed. Upping the fun, ‘pawrents’ and their pooches can take part in the dog-friendly obstacle course and take some cute selfies at the Photo Booth. There will also be health stations for owners to get their pet’s checked to make sure they’re in tip-top shape.

Tickets for entry are R50 per dog and include a doggy hamper, which consists of an LED collar for the night walk (how cool!), poop bag, carry bag & an information booklet. All profits will go to the Animal Anti-Cruelty League, so you can do something good for other animals in need while having fun with your own pet.

Upgrade to the ‘Do-Good’ Bag for R250 and get more ’shizz’ for your Shih Tzu. In addition to the items in your hamper, the Do-Good Bag will include a doggy blanket, dog treats, a dog toy or utensil, and vouchers in a recycled bag.
