Event:
Pooch exercise & pampering


And you didn't think there even were one million paws in Toowoomba. The RSPCA Million Paws Walk is the biggest outdoor event for dogs and owners in Queensland.

The four fun contests this year are Best Trick, Best Haircut, Best Dressed and Best Pet Owner Look-Alike. There will be raffles, prizes, giveaways and stalls.

Queens Park is a popular place to walk your dog with an off-leash area and the Million Paws Walk event is always a lively day at the park. There's plenty of 'aws' for cute paws and amazement at new tricks. It could be your furry friend's best play date ever.

On the day, your family mutt can also enjoy lure coursing, a photo session and RSPCA 'Shearing Shed' grooming parlour. Pampered pooches will have a memorable day. A barbeque will set their taste buds drooling.

For registration and fundraising you could win a membership to the 500 Club with VIP treatment (Southbank Parklands and Gold Coast only), a day at the RSPCA Wacol Animal Care Centre, a wildlife release or name a litter of puppies. Taking part also means you will be helping to raise funds for the RSPCA in Queensland. If you can raise over $1000 you win an entry into the draw. Funds raised go towards campaigns, services and animal care.

Go shopping online for tees and more for you and your dog.

You can register on the day at 9am at the Lindsay Street end of Queens Park. The walk commences at 10am from 1.2km up to 4.5km.

Come rain or come shine the Million Paws Walk will make walking the dog loads more fun this Sunday, 15 May. Don't forget your poop scoop.
