Pawgust is here.
The Pawgust Challenge is run by Guide Dogs Australia to raise money for their guide dog program.
Rain, hail or shine, the challenge is to walk (or run) with your four legged friend every day in August for at least 30 minutes.
Get family and friends to sponsor you and your pooch for your Pawgust Challenge.
IN OTHER NEWS:
This challenge not only increases physical health and creating a special bond with your dog but raises funds needed to raise and train guide dogs.
Guide Dogs Australia state that the cost of raising and training these life-saving animals can cost upwards of $50,000.
Guide Dogs Australia do not charge clients who require this service.
Hundreds of these dogs are breed, raised and trained every year to support Australians with low vision or blindness, so every dollar raised throughout Pawgust counts.
Since 2018, $3.2million has been raised by simply walking the dog.
