Have been for four walks in 2 days - am getting lots of excercise and rapidly loosing weight! It's good to finally find an UK animal welfare site that does not only a click to donate but a delightful variation on the theme. Let's see more sites doing something similar.
BTW, there's no limit to the amount of walks per day you can take Ripley!

Ripley is a great looking dog. Very sad to read how many dogs are being abandoned in the UK.

I just wanted to mention to those who are taking multiple walks with Ripley that the website says you can only raise a total of one pound, which is typically what you raise on one complete walk. You can take unlimited walks, but they won't raise any additional money unless you're using a different computer or internet connection, as the site recognizes that you've been there before. So after you've raised a pound, maybe you can go to another computer and do it again; otherwise, it's not counting for any additional funds. Just wanted to let you all know so we can possibly raise more money at different computers. Thanks again Nancy for posting. :-)

I got this info from

10. Users can complete as many walks as they like, but they will only be able to release a maximum of 1 each for Mars Petcare to release to the Pedigree Adoption Drive.

I'm still doing it everyday. They are close to their goal but I hope they continue at least a little bit after their goal is reached to reach more money! It's a really cool way to raise money and it's especially cool for people who like me can't donate any money. They are now at 81,604$ with 89 314 walks!
