Black Country animal lovers invited to pet memorial walk

Pet loving people in the Black Country are being invited to take part in a walk to remember their four-legged friends.

The Dignipets Memorial Walk will be held at Baggeridge Country Park, off Wodehouse Lane, on Saturday, September 7 from 12.30pm.

Dignipets is a mobile veterinary service specialising in palliative and end-of-life care. They provide home visits across the region for pets with a chronic or life-limiting illness that benefit from veterinary support in their own home, as well as 24/7 end-of-life emergencies. The practice has now organised a free memorial walk for pet owners that have needed Dignipets previously or for anyone who just wants to take time to pay tribute to their past pets Merel Taal, one of Dignipets' veterinary surgeons, said:

"We are holding the walk so that people can come together with other pet owners in memory of pets that have passed away. People can either bring current pets for the walk or just come and join us to stroll through the beautiful setting of Baggeridge.

“I am walking for our dog Bronnie, who sadly passed away this year. The loss of a pet is something every pet owners has to deal with and as a vet and pet owner I think it is a good idea to pay tribute. What better way to do it then with a memorial walk together.

"We have seen so many pets over the years and we really work hard to make sure their final moments at home are the best they can be. We also know just how much pets mean to people and we want to acknowledge that."

The event will also feature the Dignipets veterinary team to give information on elderly, palliative and end of life pet care. The event is free and includes an information pack plus a guided tour of Baggeridge.

Anyone attending is asked to meet at Baggeridge's main car park off Wodehouse Lane. For more information, see the Dignipets Facebook page or visit
