MILLION PAWS WALK



RSPCA Qld relies on the generous financial support of everyday Queenslanders like you to fund the vital services that we provide to domestic and wildlife animals. It costs close to 50 million dollars each year to run these services and RSPCA only receives 2% of this from the government. One way we make up the difference is by hosting fundraising events that are accessible for all people in all communities. 


Million Paws Walk is the RSPCA's biggest pet-friendly fundraising event. We invite you to join thousands of passionate supporters in 20 locations across the state as we walk towards a cruelty-free future. With your help, we hope to reach our fundraising goal of $645,000 in the lead up to the event. These funds will ensure that we are able to continue to provide our life-saving services to all creatures great and small. On the Walk day itself, we will celebrate our achievement by gathering together at a local events with food, competitions and kids activities and, of course, walk together to stand for the wellbeing of animals in Queensland.


Get to the starting line by registering today and then join us in fundraising to reach our ultimate goal of $645,000!

Meet Our Heroes

  • Evie's Story

    Evie is a gorgeous American Staffordshire Bull Terrier with the most beautiful personality, who loves being around people despite the injuries she has sustained and the pain she endured during the first 8 months of her life. Evie came in to RSPCA Qld care in mid-September 2017 with multiple breaks and injuries to her face, head and hips. Her injuries had been ignored for so long that she had learnt to walk on her front legs; an attempt to avoid the pain each step caused. Evie had suffered more in her first 8 months of life than most can imagine.

    Despite the pain and cruelty she had suffered – when Evie first came into RSPCA’s care she would crawl to you, unable to stand, crying for attention, care and reassurance. Just being near was enough to calm her. Evie has been let down by humans in the past but she was already forgiving. Evie’s quality of life was questionable. Could she be rehabilitated? Could she learn to trust again when she had been so wronged? Dr Wendy Archipow and the team at BVSC Animal Hospital, Albany Creek were confident they could help. RSPCA launched a crowd-funding campaign to help cover some of the costs that would be needed for Evie's rehabilitation and raised over $25,000 in just 48hrs.

    Evie’s surgery needs were extensive due to the long list of injuries her poor little body has sustained in her short life:
    • multiple cranial fractures
    • fractured teeth
    • likely healed rib fractures
    • both distal femurs fractured
    • a fractured hip

    In October of 2017, Evie underwent multiple surgeries to rectify some of the injuries she had sustained at the hands of her previous owner and to give her the quality of life she deserves. Evie has now been adopted into a loving home on the Sunshine Coast and is attending regular physio and vet appointments to keep her recovery on track.
