Remembrance walk for bereaved local pet owners

Bereaved dog owners in Fife are being urged to come together to pay tribute to their much-loved pets at a special remembrance walk.

Barking Mad Fife and Kinross will hold the event at Leven beach on September 2.

The dog-sitting specialists will also erect a special remembrance tree for anyone who wants to leave a card in memory of their cherished pets.

Staff will be on hand to provide support, understanding and a cuppa after the walk, for anybody struggling with a loss.

The Canine Capers and Cakes walk, which will start at 11am, will also raise money for the group’s chosen charity – Dogs for Good. The charity provides life-changing dogs to children and adults with disabilities.

Barking Mad founder and managing director Lee Dancy said: “We’re encouraging local communities of dog lovers to access the support and understanding that many crave.”
