Thousands of dog owners are set to take part in the World Big Dog Walk Challenge in September.
Owners can pledge how many miles they'll walk with their dog during the month and make a donation to charity. The Big Dog Walk will track everyone's miles to see how many time dog walks can lap the globe.
Let's take a look at some of the amazing animal charities the challenge is supporting.
StreetVet does vital work delivering care to homeless people and their pets in cities around the UK.
It is registered as a practice with the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons and has teams of vets and veterinary nurses who hit the streets to care for canine companions.
Getting access to treatment can be difficult for homeless people so Street Vet can provide health checks and vaccinations, medication, owner education, daily essentials like dog food, and even surgery.
Mayhew is an animal welfare charity based in London but it has an international reach.
In London it rehomes hundreds of cats and dogs every year, handles thousands of welfare cases and has a vet clinic that helps with things like neutering and vaccinations.
It also has teams and volunteers in countries like Georgia, India and Afghanistan that work on population control and disease management projects, along with vet training.
It's supporters include Louis Theroux and it's a great place to consider adopting from if you live in London.
Pets As Therapy
Pets As Therapy makes a huge difference to people in hospitals, hospices, nursing and care homes, special needs schools and a range of other venues across the UK by visiting them with friendly pets.
The therapeutic visits can improve wellbeing by tackling loneliness, and improving the lives of people suffering from mental and physical health conditions and illnesses such as autism, dementia and strokes.
The national charity also helps with literacy in children by developing their confidence and enjoyment in reading through its read2dogs scheme.
You can support these charities (more will be added as it gets closer to September) by signing up for the World Big Dog Walk Challenge.
