***EVENT CANCELLED - AT HOME EVENT ADDED***
As you’ll know by now, we had to make the difficult decision to cancel this year’s Million Paws Walk events.
While COVID-19 is having an impact on many aspects of our lives, sadly, animal cruelty has not stopped. We still need your support to help fight cruelty: We still need to keep inspectors on the road; we still need to provide medical treatment and care for animals suffering cruelty and neglect; and we still need to provide shelter for animals in need.
And the truth is, our shelters are set to become more and more full as we see a decrease in adoptions as people can’t leave their houses to meet their new furry friends.
But, we’ve got the PAWfect way you can still support us and fight animal cruelty in a safe and healthy way.
So, we’re very excited to announce…
Million Paws Walk: Walk This Way!
This May, walk your furry friend for 30 minutes a day to help more than 30,000 dogs that come through an RSPCA shelter door every year.
So, join us this May as we stay active and raise funds to fight animal cruelty!
To participate, simply click and sign-up!
Then, log the minutes you walked via your fundraising page. Just enter the minutes you walked each day - we'll then convert it to paws walked for you!
RSPCA's biggest fundraising event is back and BIGGER THAN EVER!
Still the most important event on the canine calendar, on Sunday 17 May 2020 more than 12,000 people will be walking to show their support for all animals in need, in the fight against animal cruelty.
Money raised through entry fees, the sale of merchandise and online fundraising will help to fund our critical work in the community, including the care of more than 20,000 animals entering our shelters each year. Every dollar you raise will make a huge difference and will help us raise $500,000 to support our work to fight animal cruelty.
Make sure you register, dust off those joggers, put your dog on a lead and start fundraising today!
Please note, merchandise will not be able to be purchased after Wednesday 6 May 2020. Merchandise will be available on the day of the event, but be quick as stock is limited!
8am - 12pm - with the walk commencing at 10am.
The walk will be brimming with activities, food, furry friends and more! It's the perfect way to spend the day and anybody can enter this unique event, so grab your lead, attach your pooch and come along.
Cash only on the day!
