With 30 locations across Queensland, the RSPCA Million Paws Walk continues to be one of the most popular outdoor events for animal lovers and their furry friends. Get involved on Sunday 20 May 2012 by enjoying a healthy walk, mingle with other pet owners, enter fantastic competitions and end the day by relaxing with great entertainment, a variety of food and drink, exhibitor stalls and animal demonstrations.
The RSPCA need your help to raise vital funds to assist in caring for more than 18,000 dogs that their Animal Care Centres receive each year. These dogs are not as fortunate as your much loved family pet. They often need to be desexed and vaccinated before they can be put on the road to finding a new home.
Yearly costs involved in caring for these dogs include:
•$360,000 for vaccination medication
•$270,000 to provide heartworm treatment
•$216,000 to provide food and shelter
So whether you have a dog or not, you can walk on Sunday 20 May and fundraise to help make a real difference to the lives of these 18,000 dogs. Sign up to attend your local Million Paws Walk event and start fundraising today! Funds raised through walk registrations and online fundraising goes towards vital programs, services and campaigns undertaken by RSPCA Qld, as well as looking after the animals in our care.
