Animal welfare and respect for our environment go hand in hand that’s an absolute certainty. In addition, lots of our members and friends enjoy taking pictures of their pets. Once we made this simple and obvious connection it was a short step to setting up PAAWs for our Environment Facebook Group. Our very own take on dog Plalking (that’s picking up litter while walking the dog)
All we ask of the members of our group is to pick up at least two pieces of rubbish on their daily walks with their pets. It couldn’t be simpler, just pick the items up using a spare poop bag and take it to your nearest landfill, or even better, recycling bin. The poop bag can then be used for its original purpose (or even reused for picking up more rubbish).
We would love to see you doing this so please post a photo of your pet on our page and ask all your friends to join in the crusade to help reduce the amount of rubbish ending up in our waters and green spaces.
A friendly reminder to please remember that you are responsible for keeping yourself and your dog’s safe on your walks
Thank you and happy plalking!
