Hike for Hounds 2021

Join in with our Hike for Hounds 2021 Challenge raising money for animals in our care.

Following on from last year’s success, we have decided to use the same format for this year’s challenge.

There is one very important change though, the challenge this year will take place in May instead of October.

The challenge will take place throughout the month so why not set a target distance to walk suitable for you and your dog.

Then ask family, friends and work colleagues to sponsor you.

They can do this online to ensure a Covid safe process. The funds will come directly to the centre so no need for collecting and dropping off sponsorship money.

You don’t have to have a dog to take part the challenge can be undertaken by anyone with or without a canine companion.



If you are unable to take part in this challenge you can still help.

We have created  “Team Radcliffe” which is the group name for all of our Centre staff and dogs who will take part in 2021 Hike for Hounds.

Each year we have around 1,000 animals brought into our care. In recognition of this, we are setting “Team Radcliffe” the target of walking 1,000 miles and raising £1 for every mile walked during May.

To hit our target, the dogs will need to walk just over a mile every day throughout the month.

We will record all the walks that the dogs take in May and add up the miles covered. We’ll keep you updated with our paw-o-meter (see below) as we hit key milestones along the way.

If you can’t take part yourself then you may like to donate to the “Team Radcliffe”  JustGiving campaign as they attempt to complete their challenge.


If you have any questions or queries or are having difficulty in registering for Hike for Hounds then please email hikeforhounds@rspca-radcliffe.org.uk and will get back to you as soon as possible to offer our help.
