Register now and walk to fight animal cruelty at Australia's biggest dog walk!
This year more than 3,000 dogs will be at the Lake Burley Griffin precinct to show their support for local animals in need. The Million Paws Walk event is a wonderful day for all creatures with two or four legs. All attendees will be able to enjoy live entertainment, stalls, delicious food, giveaways, activities with your pooch and a whole lot more!
Everyone is welcome, including your four-legged friend regardless of the breed, size and age. Don’t forget to make sure your pooch is up to date with vaccinations, sociable and friendly with all creatures (human and furry).
Funds raised from this year’s event will go towards the important work of our teams striving to make a difference. Last year, we saw over 1,000 abused and neglected animals come in through our Inspectorate needing urgent care from our Animal Care Services Team. This is very costly and with your help, we can continue this vital work of caring for these animals in their time of need.
Hi, my name is Cindy. Not too long ago, I came into the RSPCA as a 6-week-old puppy. I was in agony and could barely eat or drink. My muzzle was covered in weeping sores. I remember crying out for relief, but it fell on deaf ears. My owners at the time would not help me. When I came into the RSPCA, my cries were no longer being ignored. They were determined to find out what was wrong with me. It was only through their hard work that they found the cause of my suffering. I was diagnosed with a rare autoimmune disease called Puppy Strangles. They began to treat me right away! For the first time in my life, I knew I would be okay. It wasn’t long before I felt like a puppy again. Soon after, I met some new friends who were going to look after me while I was in my final stages of recovery. I fell so in love with them and they fell so in love with me that I knew this was now my home. I have been through a lot during my short life. If it wasn’t for people like you, who choose to fundraise for Million Paws Walk, my story could have had a very different ending. This year I will be participating in my first ever Million Paws Walk event. While I was at the RSPCA, I met so many unwanted, abused and neglected animals who needed urgent care like me. I can’t wait to walk and raise funds just like you, so they can have their happy ending too. Will you walk to fight animal cruelty?
