What is Million Paws Walk?
Million Paws Walk is a dog walking event held nationally by the RSPCA. This event is the largest fundraising event for the year. It involves thousands of people and their dogs registering, fundraising and participating in walks held across Australia. These vital funds raised are to provide for the animals in our care and fight against animal cruelty. Visit our About page to learn more.
