IT’S TIME to take your four-legged best mates for a walk during PAW-gust.
PAW-gust is an annual fundraising event across Australia that encourages people and their dogs to go for daily 30 minutes walks, to raise funds for Guide Dogs, during the month of August.
The money raised during August goes towards helping raise, train and breed Guide Dogs for people in need.
The team at Whitsunday Law, Cannonvale, joined the cause and are hoping to raise $1,000 by the end of this month.
“For the month of August, the team at Whitsunday Law will be doing our part to help raise much-deserved funds for Guide Dogs Australia,” Whitsunday Law’s PAW-gust team leader said.
“We hope to reach our goal of raising $1,000 for this worthy cause – this is where we need your help!
“Not only will your donations help us to stay motivated, but it will also help to provide vital funding to Guide Dogs currently in training.”
Whitsunday Law has a team of nine dogs and, so far, they have walked collectively 78kms and, at the time of writing, they had already raised $878.
“We have nearly reached our goal already! The weather has been making it easy for us to enjoy being out and about with our fur babies.
“As dog owners, we know just how much love and joy is brought into our lives by our pooches, however, this is incomparable to the presence of Guide Dogs in their owners’ lives.”
Thousands of Guide dogs are trained every year and it costs in excess of $50,000 to breed, raise and train one Guide Dog, so every dollar donated counts.
