I am an academic and writer living in Melbourne. I love to travel and I also love writing about all the things Melbourne, regional Victoria and other parts of Australia have to offer.

Hurry, hurry ! the RSPCA Million Paws Walk is giving a 50% discount to those who register early for this well-known fundraising event all across Australia. You and your canine companion will have the opportunity to walk, socialise, have fun and be entertained at this yearly and very popular event.
It doesn't matter if you choose to just walk with your dog on your own, with a group of friends or be part of a dog squad. There are many ways you can help to raise money for the great work the RSPCA do for all domestic animals and dogs in particular. Tell your friends, family, and co-workers that you're taking a stand against animal cruelty and make your Million Paws Walk the most memorable and meaningful yet! If you need some help with your fundraising efforts, then check out all the help here.
Each year, the RSPCA rescues, rehabilitates and rehomes large numbers of domestic animals. It also lobbies on behalf of animals to prevent cruelty to animals in all its forms. Animal protection is at the heart of this wonderful organisation. Money raised through entry fees to the Million Paws Walk, the sale of merchandise and online fundraising help to fund the important and critical work this organisation undertakes, including providing shelter for lost or abandoned animals.
In Melbourne, the walk takes place around the picturesque Albert Park Lake and is 5km long. Besides the walk, there will also be a festival of entertainment for people and dogs alike. Live entertainment, food trucks, veterinary advice, dog washes, and fun exhibits will ensure you both have a great day out! You can also enter one of the very popular pet dog competitions and the opportunity to win prizes on the day.
