Getting walking this May to prevent animal cruelty
Grab your leads, pop on your harness and call your pooch and get ready to hit the road for this year's Million Paws Walk this May.
The signature RSPCA fundraiser returns in 2021 to raise funds to prevent animal cruelty. But like so many events, due to COVID-19, this year there are a few changes.
Rather than gather at a designated venue and walk in unison with other pups, this year's COVID safe event will see participants taking a 30 minute walk each day in May in a virtual event to raise funds to prevent animal cruelty and support rescue services.
Sound like something you and your pups would enjoy doing together? Simply head to the RSPCA website and sign up here and start fundraising.
There's even a space for you to "log" your walkies with a personal dashboard to record your exercise effort. And if you need a little more incentive apart from helping animals in need, there are also prizes and treats along the way as your fundraising efforts rise.
So it's good exercise for you and your dog. Get your friends, families and workmates to sponsor you and do your bit to support animal welfare.
What does the RSPCA do? The RSPCA or Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals aims to prevent cruelty to animals by actively promoting their care and protection. RSPCA member societies in states and territories also operate animal care and adoption facilities and seek to raise community awareness of animal welfare issues.
