Join the country’s biggest doggy day out and help end animal cruelty.
These paws were made for walking! And that’s just what they’ll do this Sunday 21 May 2017 at the country’s biggest doggy day out – the RSPCA’s Million Paws Walk.
It’s finally here! A flurry of colour, fur and fervent fun will descend on 85 locations across Australia this Sunday (21 May 2017) as thousands of paws pound the pavement to end animal cruelty.
Now in its 23rd year, the annual Million Paws Walk is the RSPCA’s largest fundraiser and helps the animal welfare charity rescue over 35,000 animals a year in NSW alone.
4,000 doggos and their 7,000 proud owners are expected to attend the 22 events across the State, which will feature dog and owner look-a-like competitions, prizes for best dressed, food trucks, live music, doggy grooming stations and more.
And the best bit is that every cent raised by the event goes directly towards keeping the doors of RSPCA rescue shelters open and inspectors on the road, as well as providing community education programs and services to break cycles of abuse and neglect.
“The Million Paws Challenge is a really fun way to spend quality time with your pooch, while raising money for one of the best causes out there – saving animals’ lives,” commented RSPCA NSW Million Paws Walk Manager Phoebe Brasher.
“Imagine a doggy wonderland full of adventure, treats and an amazing kaleidoscope of colourful characters! There really is nothing quite like the Million Paws Walk.”
So whether you have a doggo, pupper, pupperino, fluffer, floof, woofer, boofer, long boi or thicc boi, don’t be bamboozled, get down to your local Million Paws Walk and help save a life!
