Santa Paws Walk and Christmas Shoebox Appeal 2018

When Santa Paws came to town…

On Sunday 9th December we had our second Sighthound Social Club Santa Paws Walk at Yorkshire Sculpture Park – and with 92 dogs it was truly PAWSOME! Thank you to everyone who came along and enjoyed a walk in the sunshine with us.

A time for giving

We want to say a HUGE SSC Thank You to Santa’s elves from Treats2sit4, who gave every hound a Christmas box of treats! Our Santa’s Paws walk at Yorkshire Sculpture Park would not have been possible without Andrea Littledyke and the YSP team and we would like to thank them for their continued support and good will.

Shoebox Appeal Success

This year’s response to our Christmas Shoebox Appeal was amazing! We were overwhelmed by your generosity with 213 shoeboxes, not to mention the dog food, beds, duvets and collars. We would like to say a huge “Fank Roo!” to everyone who donated and to Team Pointy in York and Hounds of Twitter for supporting the appeal.

This meant that we were able to give a shoebox to each of the hounds in our chosen charities and rescues.
