The nationwide event ran throughout September with hundreds of dog owners taking part through walking and donating to dog rescues across the UK.
Individual donations topped £10,000, which Agria Pet Insurance matched, enabling the total fundraising generated to reach a higher amount.
Lizzy Brown, German Shepherd Rescue Elite, (GSRE), said: “Donations are so greatly needed at present whilst we suffer the onslaught of the lockdown dog dump.
“GSRE would like to say a massive thank you to everyone that took part in the Agria Dog Walk, and Agria Pet Insurance, for their generous donations.”
Vicki Wentworth, managing director at Agria Pet Insurance, added: “We are astounded by the incredible generosity shown by dog owners across the UK, and their dedication to helping dogs less fortunate than their own.
“Our goal with the Agria Dog Walk was to make a difference, but we never expected to raise such a significant amount. Thank you to everyone, and their very special dogs, whose kindness will have a huge impact.”
