A BIG dog walk is being held in Cardiff for RSPCA Cymru

On Sunday 10th June, the UK’s animal charity, RSPCA will host the Big Walkies Live at Bute Park, to raise money to support the rescue and welfare of mistreated animals. 

Grab your lead, there’s a big walkies coming to town and your pooch is invited. The event is hosted by the RSPCA celebrating ‘mutts of all shapes and sizes’. All proceeds from the event will go to the RSPCA Cyrmu supporting the rescue and welfare of mistreated animals.

Dog owners and their canine companions are invited to register for the waggiest and woofiest walkies of the year by Thursday 7th June. There are two walking routes, at 2km and 4km, which takes supporters through the Feeder Canal Trail, along the River Taff and ending at Sophia Gardens.

When is it?

Sunday 10th June. Walkies start at 10am from Sophia Gardens. Sophia Gardens is situated in the city centre of Cardiff.

How do we book?

The last day of sign up is Thursday, June 7. Visit the Big Walkies website www.rspca.org.uk/wales/bigwalkieslive to register your pooch today.

Entry is a bargain at just £5 for over-16s and free for under-16s. There’s a host of bonus goodies for participants. Ticket-holders get their hands on a supporter pack and wristband, t-shirt, bandana for dogs, a dog cuddly toy for children, stickers and even a poo bag!

What else is going on?

Sophia Gardens will be hosting even more Big Walkies Live entertainment, including refreshments, stalls, merchandise, music and more.

Don't have a dog?

Animal lovers without dogs shouldn’t feel left out of the fun as there are plenty of opportunities for them to take part or volunteer at the events.


 RSPCA Cymru Events and Business Manager, Bethan Shoemark-Spear, said: “We’re so excited to launch registrations for BIG Walkies LIVE in Cardiff on 10 June. It promises to be an amazing event, where dog owners and their canine companions can celebrate mutts of all shapes and sizes.

“Dogs and their owners will have the chance to take a stunning 2.5mile (4km) or 1.25mile (2km) walk around beautiful Bute Park – with plenty of opportunities for dogs to sniff out fun, on an adventure that offers so much more than the everyday walkies; and all in the name of animal welfare.

“Places for this event are limited – so we’d urge those wanting a place at the waggiest and woofiest walkies of the year to sign up as soon as they can. Entry for over-16s is just a fiver – and includes so many goodies, from t-shirts, to a dog bandana, a children’s toy and more.

“Dog walking has so many benefits for canine and human health – and we can’t wait for hundreds of owners and dogs from across the capital city and beyond to take part, and enjoy the BIG Walkies LIVE event village, for what is sure to be a pawsome day-out!”
