The RSPCA’s Million Paws Walk challenge is back this May, to raise vital funds to help the RSPCA to rescue, rehabilitate, and rehome animals in need.

To participate in the challenge, register online via the Million Paws Walk website and commit to taking yourself and your furry friend on a daily walk every day this month. 

Last year, 30,000 dogs turned to the RSPCA for help. Many were victims of cruelty, bred inhumanely for profit, or abandoned by the humans they loved unconditionally.

Ben Wilheim, Community Fundraiser Manager, RSPCA NSW, said that every dollar raised from Million Paws Walk is vital in providing the animals in the RSPCA’s care with a second chance. 

“Our virtual challenge is an opportunity for people to support Million Paws Walk their own way. Supporters enjoy being active outdoors with their pooch when best suited to their lifestyle while raising funds for a very special cause at the same time.

“Each member of our fun and rewarding Million Paws Walk virtual community has access to online fundraising support, and their pups receive toys, bandannas, and personalised leashes when certain fundraising targets have been reached. Now is the perfect time to sign-up and join the fight against animal cruelty.”

For those who would like to attend a physical Million Paws Walk on Sunday 29 May, there is still time to register.
