Kama’s Cave specialises in homing greyhounds and other sighthounds as well as caring long term for those unable to be homed.

They organised a walk at Ferry Meadows in Peterborough on Father’s Day which raised £600 for dogs in their care and saw 76 hounds plus four other breeds attend.

It is the seventh year that the greyhound walk has taken place at 152 locations around the world as far afield as New Zealand, Australia, USA, Canada and Brazil as well as locations across Europe and the UK.

The walk was followed by a picnic and fund raising raffle and included hounds from just a few months old up to a special hound celebrating her 14th Birthday.
