On Sunday the 19th of May puppy lovers are invited to walk their dogs to help out the RSPCA with their ongoing work.
Speaking of their work, they’re doing quite well at it.
Check out these numbers.
Since last year’s Million Paws Walk RSPCA ACT has worked with 1,397 adult dogs and 317 puppies (1,714 in total). Domestic Animal Services (DAS) has transferred 48 dogs to us, inspectors seized 4 from cruel circumstances, 44 family pets have received free emergency boarding as part of our pet support program, 35 puppies were born at the shelter, 230 dogs and puppies were surrendered to us by families who could no longer care for them and 1,345 stray dogs were handed into RSPCA by the community.
Every healthy dog was homed. Every dog with poor behaviour that our qualified trainers could manage and improve was homed. Every sick or injured dog our vets could save was saved. We’d like to thank the community for its ongoing support of RSPCA and we look forward to celebrating with animal lovers alike next Sunday.
Good work RSPCA.
