Walk a virtual 25km and help change a pet’s path

Pets can’t choose how their lives pan out. But you can help the ones that fate has been unkind to. Give pets that are sick, injured or homeless a happy new year to look forward to by walking a virtual 25km this December.

By getting sponsored, you’ll raise vital funds to give these pets the future they deserve. In turn, they’ll bring us untold joy and companionship. And you might even get onto Santa Paws’ good list too!

 Walk the herald angels sing. It’s time to stretch those stocking fillers and step out to help change the lives of sick, injured and homeless pets. How and where you do the 25km is up to you. From one mammoth session on a treadmill to daily walks with a furry friend, it’s your call.

Individual Entry


On average, it costs Blue Cross £567 to rescue and rehome a cat or kitten, and £909 to care for and find a new forever home for a dog*. We rely on supporters like you to help sick, injured and homeless pets.

 Pay £12 when you sign up and Santa will give you a medal and a certificate to thank you for taking part. Pay an extra £3 for a furry friend and they’ll get a dog tag medal too!

Let’s all go walking in a winter wonderland this Christmas – sign up for Winter Walkies today.

 Pets change lives, we change theirs.
