future pandemics and would improve our health and our environment at the same

BAN THE WHIP – NOW!
The horse racing industry plans to resume racing this month, which means more
horses being forced to run, in the heat – and being beaten with the whip.

achieve a ban on the whip.

ANNUAL SPONSORED WALK – CANCELLATION
Due to Covid-19, sadly we have taken the decision to cancel our annual sponsored
walk on Hampstead Heath. This year would have been the 17th year of holding this
event, but the health and wellbeing of our supporters and staff is the most
important concern for us, at this difficult time.
As well as being a wonderful event for people and dogs alike, the walk has also
been a stalwart fundraising opportunity for us and generated significant amounts
of money in support of our campaigns.
