Million Paws Walk

A Million Paws Opens Doors for Dogs in Need.

The RSPCA Queensland’s largest fundraising event of the year Million Paws Walk is back and bigger than ever with over 17,000 people estimated to walk at 26 different locations state wide, on Sunday 18th May 2014.

This year RSPCA Qld is hoping to raise $250,000 for dogs in need. Nearly 45,000 animals pass through RSPCA Qld Animal Care Centres every year and over 18,000 are dogs that have been surrendered, abandoned or seized by Inspectors.

These dogs are not as fortunate as your much loved family pet. They often need to be desexed and vaccinated before they have the chance to find a new home. The money raised through The Million Paws Walk enables these dogs to receive daily care, veterinary treatment and funds rehoming programs. The cost to our community for these animals in need is in the millions.

This year the RSPCA Queensland is encouraging Million Paws Walk participants to try and raise $150 each. “Our annual operating costs are $39 million in Queensland and we receive less than one percent of that figure in Government funding. So every cent raised helps,” said RSPCA Qld spokesperson Michael Beatty.

How to get involved;
1. Register online
2. Pay registration fee
3. Create your online fundraising page
4. Ask your friends and family to sponsor you

Join the Million Paws Walk and support a community of dog lovers, helping all abused dogs get the second chance they deserve, while enjoying a fun day out with your best friend. It is cheaper and easier to register online before the day and don’t forget, even if you can’t walk you can still fundraise!

The RSPCA would also like to acknowledge the major sponsor of this year’s event, Hill’s Pet Nutrition (the maker of Hill’s Science Diet and Hill’s Prescription Diet).

As the official nutritional partner of the RSPCA, Hill’s Pet Nutrition has provided Hill’s Science Diet to all shelter animals awaiting adoption since 1997.
