Cold weather has never stopped your dog wanting a walk.

The upcoming Winter Dog Walk invites a parade of dressed-up dogs for a morning stroll along the Dandenong Creek trail on 28 July.

The walk is a fund-raiser for the Australian Animal Protection Society, which is building a bigger shelter on Perry Road Keysborough.

Funds and donations will also help care, feed and treat hundreds of abandoned, lost and orphaned animals.

The walk starts at the AAPS temporary shelter on Bangholme Road, Dandenong South and finishes at the future shelter site in Keysborough.

Walkers can opt for either 2 km or 4 km trips.

Prizes are offered for best-dressed dogs, best dog tricks and other categories.

The event includes a vegan sausage sizzle, shelter tours and op shop sale. It is held on Sunday 28 July, 11am-3pm.
