A dog at the National Memorial Arboretum

Hundreds of dogs and their owners are expected to visit the National Memorial Arboretum this month for the annual Paws for Remembrance event.

The 10th February event, which is supported by the PDSA, will also highlight the memorials in Alrewas that commemorate the service of animals.

There will also be the opportunity to take up a dog health checks, get pet care advice and see demonstrations of emergency animal first aid.

The Happy Hounds High Street will host a selection of pet-related businesses offering products and services, including portraits, clothing and treats.

Sarah Oakden, from the National Memorial Arboretum, said: “Since 2016 we have welcomed thousands of dog lovers and their four-legged friends to our annual Paws for Remembrance events and throughout the year to explore our dog walking route on the hardstanding paths around the site.

“The event raises valuable funds for the upkeep of the arboretum through a £5 per per dog suggested donation.

“Dogs are welcome all year round to walk around the arboretum and to visit the coffee shop for refreshments – however, we do ask that dog walkers use our designated route to ensure the comfort of all our visitors.”
