3 Peaks for Painted Dogs

To raise funds for painted dog conservation, a team of Chester Zoo staff are assailing the highest peaks of Wales, England and Scotland.

The Pack have successfully conquered Snowdon and Scafell Pike, raising over £1,000 towards their £2,500 target.


Pack Leader Joe explains what inspired him to walk for painted dogs

‘Painted dogs travel extraordinary distances as a pack, so it seemed fitting take on the team challenge of walking over 26 miles and climbing over 3,000 metres. We are so grateful to everyone who has helped us towards our £2,500 target to cover the cost of a GPS collar for vital painted dog research.’



Now The Pack are facing their final challenge: Ben Nevis. As the highest mountain in the British Isles, its name is commonly translated as ‘malicious mountain’…

Wish us luck!
