Here is something that will make you PAWS for thought. Each year over 10,000 Brisbanites and their dogs walk to support the RSPCA's biggest annual fundraiser. This year, the RSPCA Million Paws Walk is again at South Bank Parklands. Not in Brisbane? No worries. There are twenty walks across Queensland, so you can take your pick. To find one close to you, click here. Sign up today.
An added incentive is that all proceeds go towards helping the animals in the RSPCA's care. A very worthwhile fundraiser - I'm sure all you animal lovers out there will agree with me. Did you know that the RSPCA relies on donations and community support to fund 99% of their annual costs? By supporting this event, you're helping to ensure they can continue to provide the best care to all creatures, not just dogs.
All dogs great and small are welcome to walk with their owners (if they are vaccinated, friendly and socialised, for the comfort and security of all attending). No fur-baby? You are welcome to join in the fun, even if you don't have a dog to bring (or borrow a friend's).
