Dogs! Dogs everywhere!

September 28th was the day to take our puppy friends on a different walk.

We combined AFECTU's needs with our problem of remaining still and went to Aveiro's parks to spread the puppyness! Adding it all up, we have as a result what was the first, of surely many, edition of our "Cãominhada".

Besides the socializing, and many cuddles, there were also agility trials, friendliness and cuteness. Not furgetting a small demonstration of the woof being carried out by Associação Portuguesa de Mantrailing e Canicrossing.

Thanks to the solidarity and companionship of our participants, we were able to raise about 75kg of food (Bon A-pet-treat!), blankets and cleaning products for AFECTU's animals. It was a small contribution to build a better world. Next year there'll be more!

Fur-tunately, this dog walk was carried out with help from Núcleo de Estudantes de Biologia - AAUAV and Núcleo de Cinema e Fotografia. It was sponsored by Amity Portugal, Dirty Dog, Trixie Portugal, Patudos com pinta, and ConectaCão. It was also supported by Aveiro’s City Hall and IPDJ - Instituto Português do Desporto e Juventude, I.P.
