Million Paws Walk is a day made for dog lovers. Tens of thousands of people and their pooches walk together to fight against animal cruelty. This year, the walk will take place on 21 May and will be held in 22 different locations across NSW.


Million Paws Walk is RSPCA NSW’s largest annual event, where 100 per cent of funds raised through event activities, donations, merchandise sales and your own fundraising efforts go directly towards helping animals in need. Your contributions will help care for more than 35,000 animals who enter our shelters every year. You will also help keep our inspectors on the road, run education and support programs, and improve the welfare of animals every day.


So put on your walking shoes and come down for a day of fun activities, competitions, food, new friends, and of course, the walk! Even if you don’t have a pooch of your own, we guarantee there will be plenty to play with on the day.


This year, we're running a Challenge event for the very first time! From 20 April to 20 May, you can take the Million Paws Challenge! The Challenge involves you and your dog walking a million paws and then getting family and friends to sponsor your effort. 

Register now, take the Challenge and start transforming the lives of animals in need.

  • Tilly's story

    Tilly was rescued from a life of pain and neglect by an RSPCA inspector. When she arrived at the shelter, she was severely malnourished. She had nothing more than skin covering bones and was suffering from an agonising condition called Demodex. It caused her skin to break out in red-raw blisters and welts. She was in so much pain that the simple act of shifting her weight was excruciating. Months of rehabilitation, proper food and care saw this scared and hungry dog, transform into a playful pup who loves to run and cuddle. Tilly’s recovery was made possible because of people like you. When you fundraise and walk with your dog at the Million Paws Walk event, you're helping thousands of homeless and abandoned animals who aren’t as fortunate as your beloved pet, but who all deserve a second chance.
