The precincts where non-walk activities are held are generally accessible to disabled patrons, however, parts of some walk routes might be unsuitable. Check the individual event’s Facebook page or contact the walk manager.
Million Paws Walks are ‘all weather’ events. The RSPCA will only postpone or cancel a walk event prior to its commencement if it believes weather or route conditions might be hazardous to patrons. Each walk manager has the authority to modify an advertised route, temporarily postpone or even cancel an event for reasons of patron safety.
Free parking is available at all locations. Some are car parking facilities; others are on side streets. Organisers will endeavour to provide disabled parking facilities where it is not already available. More special access information is available on individual walk location pages.
All funds raised go to sustaining our three Animal Care Centres at Devonport, Launceston and Hobart, which care for more than 4,000 animals each year. These facilities rely on public support for their ongoing operation.
Register as a fundraiser by taking the Million Paws Walk Challenge and raising $500 or more by 5 p.m. May 19 2017. Funds must be raised per person. All participants who fundraise $500 or more will receive an email invitation to the Million Paws Club closer to the event date.
No. Fundraising must be through your Million Paws Walk online fundraising page. If you collect cash donations, you can update this on your online fundraising page yourself, or ask friends and family to process an online donation themselves. Sending donations to any RSPCA Tasmania facility by post or through direct deposit, will not count towards your total. Making a donation through the RSPCA Tasmania website will also not be included in your total.
Club members will enjoy special food, activities and heaps of great prizes! Other benefits and perks will be updated regularly throughout the fundraising period. Make sure you check this website regularly to see what the latest prizes and gifts are!
If you are over 16 years old and willing to have an early start to the day (don’t worry, it’s only for one day), then we want you! There are a range of volunteering roles to suit all personalities and fitness levels. You should be able to work well under pressure, cope with large crowds and have flexibility. Of course, you must love dogs too!
If you are interested in volunteering at one of the regional walks, please contact your local walk to find out how. You will find the appropriate contact details on the individual page of each walk location.
