Walkies in Warwick

Leamington Editorial 22nd Apr, 2015 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016   0

IT was walkies in Warwick for all at the weekend.

Vets from the town’s Emscote Vets together with dog owners took a stroll with their four-legged friends around Victoria Park on Saturday (April 18).

The sponsored walk is just one way the practice is raising money for charity Pet Savers during National Pet Month.

Staff from the Emscote Road practice also wore fancy dress animal ears for a week, held an Easter egg raffle and ran a number of pet-themed competitions in aid of the charity.

A spokeswoman said: “Thank you to everyone that joined us on our dog walk and to everyone who has helped us raise money during April for this fantastic charity.

“Pet Savers funds vital clinical research into the treatment of illness and conditions affecting our pets. They are one of the few charities that do not experiment on animals to find treatments and are run by dedicated vets and nurses.”
