We need your help!

We rely on the community to help produce wonderful fundraising events, just like Million Paws Walk! You could be one of our dedicated volunteers providing invaluable assistance to our organisation at this year’s event.

Different roles for volunteers include:

  • ticket sales

  • animal activity attendants

  • animal minders

  • event set up and pack down

  • walk marshals

  • merchandise attendants

Volunteering at the Million Paws Walk event is a great way to give back while enjoying a wonderful day out with people and pooches of all kinds.

To become a volunteer, you must be at least 18 years old and hold a current Working with Vulnerable People registration (WWVP).

Without the help of volunteers, RSPCA ACT couldn't hold great community events like Million Paws Walk. If you're interested in helping out at this year’s event, please email Bethany Flannagan at volunteers@rspca-act.org.au.


What age do I need to be to volunteer?
If you are over 18 years of age and don’t mind an early start, you can volunteer at the Million Paws Walk event!
Who is the ideal volunteer?
The ideal volunteer will be a happy and encouraging person, with the ability to work well under pressure and cope with large crowds of dog enthusiasts. Of course, a love of dogs is also a must!
Do I need to have a WWVP card?
Yes. All volunteers must hold a current working with vulnerable people card (WWVP). All volunteer applications must be received by RSPCA ACT no later than 1 May 2017.
How do I get a WWVP Card?
To receive a WWVP card, head to the Access Canberra website to apply online for free. The WWVP card is issued by the ACT Government and takes approximately two weeks to receive.
I would like to volunteer at the event, but can only help for a specific time. Can I still assist?
Yes. Please contact our Volunteer Coordinator Bethany Flanagan to discuss availabilities. Email at bethany.flanagan@rspca-act.org.au or call on (02) 6287 8127.
