ZSL Pooch Parade

Attention all animal lovers! The Zoological Society of London will be hosting its first Pooch Parade sponsored dog walking event in London on Sunday 22 March and this is also your chance to participate in a great cause.

The 2.5 km walk through Battersea Park is raising funds for ZSL’s Lions400 Campaign. The campaign aims to raise £5.7m to create Land of the Lions, a new state-of-the-art lion breeding centre and exhibit at ZSL London Zoo, as well as extend vital conservation work in India where only 400 Asiatic lions are left in the wild.

To participate in this event, you can register your dog here for £10, plus a pledge to raise £40 per dog for the Lions400 campaign. Each dog can be accompanied by up to four walkers. Each participating pup will receive a special doggy bag and a medal to show off when they complete their walk. Places are very limited so that's why we at The Amazing Blog are giving you the 'heads up' at least a week in advance.

Even if you don’t have a four-legged friend to register, this is a great event to come out and watch. The event gets up and running at 10 a.m.
