Raising funds for Friends of the animals Wales Charity and awareness and support in a bid to stop puppy farming and the cruel treatment towards these animals. All monies raised goes direct to the volunteer based charity

My name is Jemima and those two good looking little fellas are Ted and Jackson. Ted is our newest member to the family and was rescued by Friends of  Animals wales after being used as a puppy farm stud for many years. Teddy has done so well since leaving his foster home to join us and although at times he is still scared of the big wide world he is beginning to trust us and enjoy just being part of the family.  Following the adoption of our first cavalier Coby almost five years ago we have followed the charity ever since.

On Tuesday 20th March we three are embarking on an adventure to get ourselves to Wales from Hythe in Kent, by foot and train to arrive for a sponsored tattoo on the 25th March. The tattooist is doing this completely free of charge in a bid to raise money for Friends of the Animals Wales, his time and ink are being donated. I need to raise a minimum of £100 to be able to get the tattoo done but my aim is to raise as much money for this very special small charity, Friends of Animals Wales.

Our little big adventure to Wales is an active demonstration of Love and freedom to roam in direct contrast and protest to and against Puppy Farming.The puppy Farming industry is fueled by greed and cruelty to animals.  I have seen the great work that this charity does continually, never turning an animal away no matter how poorly, the charity is reliant upon donations and fund raising to pay for vet bills, transportation of the animals, food and  so much more, and I must stress that all the people involved are volunteers.

We will be travelling on foot and paw each day and also by train via the great Western Railway line to get us to our Welsh destination, staying in dog friendly B and B's, in time for me to have a small paw tattoo done on the Sunday 25th. I am funding the journey completely myself,  all monies raised will go straight to the charity.

At the age of 44 this will be my first tattoo and my first solo adventure with the dogs,my fitness level is good, my sense of direction however is questionable, fingers crossed we get to the right destination!  Currently I know our first leg of the journey will be walking from Hythe to Ashford International Station, approximately 11 miles and taking the train into the Eastbourne area.  From Eastbourne to Southampton, Southampton to Bath and Finally Bath to Wales via the Severn Bridge on foot into Caldecot. Caldecot to Pontypridd area of Wales.
