Bring your pooch and join in the fun!
This year's SPCA Purina Woefie Wandel again takes place along a 4km scenic route through charming vineyards at the lovely D'Aria Wine Estate in Durbanville.
Last year, more than 1200 walkers and nearly 1000 dogs took part and we’re expecting even more animal-lovers and their companions this year. It's a great way for owners to spend quality time with their dogs –and make a huge difference in the lives of thousands of shelter dogs at the SPCA.
Before and after the walk, you can enjoy wine-tasting, delicious eats and treats, fun giveaways, lucky draws and competitions.
Entrants are urged to wear proper walking shoes suitable for dirt roads. We also want to caution owners of short-nose breeds (i.e. bulldogs and pugs) and those with older dogs with joint problems, to consult their veterinarian before taking part in the walk.
Puppies under four months are not permitted to take part. Owners of large breed dogs 18 months or younger, should consider walking a shorter distance, which will be indicated along the route, as extended walking can put undue pressure on delicate skeletal structures.
Water and cool-off points for both dogs and owners will be available along the routes. SPCA Inspectors and Animal Welfare Assistants will be on hand to ensure human and canine walkers are kept safe along the routes.
