Hi Everyone, so this is a different kind of post.
During the month of June 2018 Indie (pictured below) and I will be taking part in My Big Walkies to raise money for RSPCA (England and Wales).
We’ll be walking 10,000+ steps a day. I guarantee Indie will do more than me. He’ll have his own little tracker too.
What do the RSPCA do?
We are raising money for RSPCA (England and Wales). I know the RSPCA best for it’s rehoming of Dogs and cats but actually, they do so much more. They receive calls to their cruelty line on average every 27 seconds so this is a lot of work.
They push for law changes and often need to cover the costs involved in the rehabilitation of animals they rescue and of course costly vets fees.

Why it matters to me
I love animals and especially dogs. I’ve had a dog for pretty much all of my life and have loved each one. Indie, my current dog is a soon to be 5 -year-old Shih Tzu. I love him to bits. We’ve had him from being a little puppy and he’s very much a huge part of our family and a little spoilt. I mean, who can resist those big eyes.
When I hear stories of animals being treated badly, sometimes in such a cruel way or an animal being abandoned, it really pulls on my heartstrings. I can’t bear to think of any animal being unloved, uncared for an especially being treated so cruelly.
I don’t consider Indie to be super lucky. I think every single dog should have the same care, love and safe home that he has.
Unfortunately, this is not the case for many animals. So, I want to do my bit to help.
What we’ll be doing
Throughout June 2018 – Indie and I will track our daily steps and I’ll be sharing our progress every day on the JustGiving page. We’ll both have our own trackers.
I’m hoping for lots of nice weather. We both like the sunshine.
How you can help support us
Please support us in any way you can. We both very much appreciate it.
- Make a donation to our Just Giving Page to support RSPCA (England and Wales). Every single penny counts and it all adds up, so if you can spare some money, this would really help.
- Get involved. If you have a dog of your own, consider taking part and raising money yourself. Your dog will be so pleased and so will the RSPCA and you’ll probably get a bit fitter.
- Encourage us – Any words of encouragement are greatly appreciated – I definitely won’t feel like doing my 10,000 steps some days. Indie definitely will.
- Share this post and ask others to support us.
We really do appreciate any support you can give us.
So that’s my challenge for June – Even if you don’t want to take part yourself, I encourage you to get outside, get walking and enjoy some special time with your pets if you have them.
Thank you in advance for your support.
Wendy and Indie xx
