The group set off from the World of Country Life, in Littleham, and walked to Exmouth and back.
The 16 walkers raised £400 for the cause, visiting a primary school along the route and performing a rendition of Old MacDonald had a Farm.
Ian Dowell, Happy Feet chairman, said the event was the group’s 645th walk, but the first dressed as farm animals.
He said: “In the last eleven years some members of group have walked around 5,000 miles, but it was the first time they had to walk, talk and light-heartedly stop and ask passers-by to donate.
“This was the group’s 645th walk but never had they had to dress as pink pigs or brown cows and draw attention to themselves.”
Happy Feet is a bi-weekly walking group, meeting every Wednesday and Friday.
