Campaspe Dog Walk 2016 - April 10

When The Lost Dogs’ Home Campaspe Dog Walk returns on Sunday 10th April, paws big and small are set to hit the banks of the scenic Campaspe River. 

This family-friendly day offers plenty of activities for those with two legs and four legs and is returning for the fifth year to the plains of Lions Park in Echuca, Victoria.

The centrepiece of the day is the five-kilometre dog walk. Starting at 10am at Lions Park, the walk will see participants travel along the picturesque Campaspe River and back to the park. Campaspe Shelter Manager, Kate Kemp, said the walk is a great opportunity for the dog lovers of Echuca to get out and about for a great cause.

“Each year we see dogs of all breeds and sizes come down with their owners to enjoy the walk and other activities happening on the day. It is a great event not only to help raise funds for our shelter, but to also raise awareness of the benefits of adopting a shelter animal,” said Kate.


“For a gold coin donation, dog walkers will be able to register between 9 and 10am at Lions Park before the walk begins. All funds raised on the day will go towards caring for the 1,500 lost and abandoned cats and dogs coming through our Campaspe shelter each year.


The walk gives the whole family, including our special canine companions, the opportunity to come out and enjoy the beautiful scenery of Lions Park.”
