Why Trek for the USPCA

Founded in 1836, The Ulster Society for Prevention of Cruelty to animals (USPCA) is the second oldest Animal Welfare Charity in the world. Our aim is to Prevent Cruelty and Relieve Suffering of animals across Northern Ireland. The driving force for our Charitable Activities is our unique commitment to protect all our animals. Every year many animals suffer from neglect and cruelty, with your help we can end this suffering. The USPCA is a registered charity and receives no financial support from government. To continue our work we rely on support from the Northern Ireland Public and voluntary donations to provide funds necessary to fulfil our charitable services.

  • A single point of contact within the organisation to support and assist you from registration to completion of the challenge.
  • Training guides, hints and tips to get you ready for the big challenge.
  • Lots of fundraising ideas and support such as USPCA branded t-shirts, collection buckets, sponsorship forms, posters etc.
  • A USPCA representative who will join you on a training day, trek the entire journey and organise a post-trek reunion.
  • A USPCA Trek The Rockies 2019 T-Shirt.
  • Access to a Facebook Group just for your trek, so you can chat with your fellow trekkers beforehand.
