Walking 500km to improve life for the AKIRA dogs

Donazione protetta
Hi. My name's Lee Harker and I'm completing a 500km charity walk from Barcelona to Moraira in December to help raise funds for a new dog training and rehabilitation zone at the Akira Dog Sanctuary in Benissa. The centre will help teach rescued dogs new life skills and overcome trauma which will help their potential for adoption.

The reason I’m doing this is because I love dogs (well, all animals, just dogs the most!). I have been volunteering at the Akira Shelter for nearly three years and it’s become a passion of mine to help as many rescued dogs as possible. If I won the Euro millions I would build the best dog shelter in the world. I haven’t yet so in the meantime, I’m doing this walk.

There’s more information about the project at and about Akira’s work in general at

Earlier this year I completed a 240km walk and walked 40km a day, staying at various hotels/hostels along the way. The walk took six days, and with your generous donations we raised over 10,000 euros.

I appreciate it’s an expensive time of the year for people especially with household bills going up, so even if you can’t donate, it would be massively appreciated if you could share or repost this link to friends and colleagues.

Thank you all so much for your support – it really will make a difference to Akira’s work. The 10,000 euros has already helped complete 2 new areas with fencing for the dogs but this extra funding would allow for a huge piece of land and greater freedom for the dogs to improve their quality of life and improve their chances for adoption as their mental health will be much improved.
