Look at the map for Schnauzefest 2019 walks to see if there is one near to you, or visit Facebook to see all the walks in a list. Remember, walks are being added all the time so keep checking if there isn’t one that suits you. Or please consider hosting your own Schnauzerfest walk!
There’s no need to register to join a walk but if you’re on Facebook it helps the walk hosts (volunteers) to have an idea of numbers. So if you can, please click to say you are ‘going’ on the individual walk event page.
There's no set fee to take part in any Schnauzerfest walk. We take the 'honesty box' approach and everyone is welcome to give as little, or as much as they choose to. Every penny raised by Schnauzerfest will go towards helping dogs saved from terrible backgrounds get all the care and veterinary treatment they need, so they can go on to have good lives.
We encourage people to donate online but hosts can also take donations on walks. By donating online, if you are eligible to claim GIFT AID it increases your donation by 25% so please claim it if you can. Hosts cannot claim on behalf of others for collections made on the walks - hence individual online donating is best.
Donations can be made before or after the walks and no-one is going to check what's been made or not. We want everyone to give what they're able, or willing to and to just enjoy taking part.
On some walks, hosts may also be offering extras such as cakes, crafts, raffles in exchange for donations so it’s good to take some cash with you to support the hosts efforts. But, nothing is obligatory with Schnauzerfest, you take part as much or as little as you want to.
