TV presenter and celebrity vet Dr James Greenwood attended the event with his Labrador Dolly, and he spoke to walkers before the start of the walk about why animal rescue centres like Bath Cats and Dogs Home are doing such essential work.
Dr Greenwood said: “My Labrador, Dolly and I greatly enjoyed meeting the dogs and walkers at the Wag Walk.
“Rescue centres are a lifeline for animals and pet owners in these tough times and what strikes me about Bath Cats and Dogs Home is their very non-judgemental approach to animal rescue, their incredible veterinary team working behind the scenes in their vet suite and their brilliant rehoming team matching the right animals with the right owner.
“We can’t underestimate how important rescue charities are for animal welfare so please support them if you can.”
The Wag Walk was sponsored by Bath Vets and has raised funds for the care of vulnerable cats and dogs.
The two walking routes featured trails through the Claverton area, with a choice of a 2-mile flat route close to the home or a 5-mile route along the National Trust Bath Skyline.
All dogs who took part wore their bright orange ‘Wag Walk’ doggie bandanas as a memento of the day.
