A PAW-SOME DAY OUT: The RSPCA Million Paws Walk is happening this Sunday

This Sunday, 29 May, Australia’s largest doggy day out will again take to the streams to raise money for the thousands of animals who turn to RSPCA in New South Wales each year.

There is still time to register for the local leg of The RSPCA Million Paws Walk that will take place at Speers Point Park in Lake Macquarie from 9:30 am.

To register and grab your ticket you’ll need to head to the Million Paws Walk website.

If you use the code ‘SUNNYSUNDAY’, you’ll get a paw-some discount of 20% off event tickets.

Tickets will also be available at the door.

“RSPCA NSW has an open-door policy to help animals in need. Thirty thousand animals come through our doors each year, and by supporting the Million Paws Walk, you are gifting these animals a second chance,” RSPCA NSW Community Fundraiser Manager, Ben Wilheim, said.

“The event is an incredibly special opportunity for our community and their pups to come together to enjoy a fun-filled day out, whilst walking the fight against animal cruelty. After two challenging years, we are so excited to finally be able to physically celebrate with our supporters in the sunshine. It feels good to be back!”

Last year, the RSPCA NSW Inspectorate investigated over 13,800 animal cruelty cases across the state.

All funds from Million Paws Walk are crucial in keeping RSPCA NSW inspectors on the road and critical in the continuation of community outreach programs, which focus on educating communities and school children about the importance of responsible pet ownership, preventing animal cruelty at the source.

The RSPCA Million Paws Walk is happening this Sunday, 29 May at Speers Point Park in Lake Macquarie. To purchase tickets and visit millionpawswalk.com.au/speers-point to find out more.
