On Sunday, May 7, 2023, PetWell is hosting its annual Walk for PetWellness, a five kilometre charity walk to raise funds for Second Chance Animal Rescue (SCAR).

The walk will take place in Melbourne’s Docklands. Starting at Point Park, the 5 km route goes to Ron Barassi Senior Park and back again.

Designed to raise awareness of the best healthcare and nutrition for all pets in the community, PetWell is committed to the health and wellness of less fortunate animals. 

SCAR is an organisation committed to stopping animal abandonment by addressing its root causes. By providing preventative pet retention programs and through public advocacy, SCAR aims to keep pets with their families for good. 

PetWell aims to register 500 people for the walk, with 100 per cent of the registration fees going to SCAR, regardless of how many entries are sold.

Last year’s walk was an overwhelming success, with hundreds of entrants raising over $7,000 for the Save-A-Dog Scheme (SADS).
