Dogs and their owners are invited to take part in the Save Our Strays (SOS) Sponsored Dog Walk on February 13.

Pooches will be prancing along Weston Beach to raise money for Somerset animal charities including the RSPCA, Dogs Friends and the Holly Hedge Animal Sanctuary.

The walk, which has been organised by Whitehouse Kennels and Cattery in Lympsham, will start at 12noon at Uphill Beach. Participants will then walk northwards up the beach to the Grand Pier and back again.

Some of the strays taken in by the kennels will be walked by members of staff, and dog owners are encouraged to get sponsorship and join them.

Kennel owner Christine King said: "SOS is about raising awareness of the importance of maintaining the non-destruction policy for strays in North Somerset and raising money to provide shelter, food and veterinary care for unwanted dogs looking for new homes."

Everyone who takes part will receive a certificate and a rosette at the end.
