RSPCA Million Paws Walk 2012

RSPCA ACT 24 April 2012

In its seventh year at Commonwealth Park, our Million Paws Walk continues to be one of RSPCA’s most popular outdoor events for animal lovers and their furry friends. This year our theme is a lazy Sunday – and we want you to share what you do on your Sunday. Perhaps you chill on the couch with your pooch, or potter in the garden, or even enjoy a family picnic. Feel free to dress up in your favourite leisure outfit that best depicts your lazy Sunday – we will have prizes for best dressed!

Don’t have a dog? Don’t worry! You don’t need a pooch to participate.

Money raised at Million Paws Walk doesn’t just help dogs and puppies in our care. It also helps the thousands of cats, kittens, birds, mice, rats, ferrets, rabbits, livestock and native animals that we see each year. RSPCA also provides many services to the community such as a free lost and found service, access to discounted veterinary care for pensioners, 24 hour phone support for injured native wildlife, and a support program for vulnerable members of the community and their pets.

To support your RSPCA, all you have to do is register to walk.

It’s a fantastic day out for the family with on stage entertainment, stalls, food and drink, and a gentle walk around Lake Burley Griffin. Around 10,000 people accompanied by 3,000 dogs congregate in Commonwealth Park on the third Sunday in May each year, and believe us when we tell you it is quite a spectacle! Dogs of every breed, size, shape and colour will lead their owners around the central basin of Lake Burley Griffin for a relaxing walk. Then it’s playtime back at Stage 88 with activities for everyone throughout the afternoon.

The ribbon will officially be cut by Chief Minister Katy Gallagher MLA at 11:00am on Sunday, 20 May 2012.
