I'm a freelance writer who lives on the Bellarine Peninsula. I enjoy finding new things to see and do in the beautiful area that I live in.
If you have a dog, a few spare hours, and would love to support the work that the RSPCA does for lost, abandoned and neglected animals, then you have the perfect opportunity to help make a difference. All you need to do is dig out your walking shoes, find your dog's leash and get yourself to the nearest available site to participate in the RSPCA Million Paws Walk, which will be held on Sunday 19 May in various locations around Australia.
The Geelong event will be held at the Eastern Park gardens from 9am, and will involve walking around the Eastern Park Circuit (which is approximately 2km) with your furry little friends, in a friendly and sociable atmosphere. Hundreds of people and their accompanying pooches are expected to attend on the day, helping to raise money for the RSPCA as they work towards strengthening the adoption and veterinary services that they provide for animals in need, and educating people about responsible pet ownership.

There will also be other activities on besides the walk, with pet care displays and advice available, as well as competitions, demonstrations, products for sale and a BBQ for those interested. You can register on the day or register online here. Even if you don't have a dog, you're more than welcome to attend the event and walk the circuit with your family and friends for this worthy cause.
This event for dog walkers and their pets is one of the RSPCA's biggest fundraisers of the year
