The RSPCA’s Million Paws Walk challenge is back this May, to raise vitalfunds to help the RSPCA to rescue, rehabilitate, and rehome animals in need.
To participate in the challenge, register online via the Million Paws Walkwebsite and commit to taking yourself and your furry friend on a daily walkevery day this month.
Last year, 30,000 dogs turned to the RSPCA for help. Many were victims ofcruelty, bred inhumanely for profit, or abandoned by the humans they lovedunconditionally.
Ben Wilheim, Community Fundraiser Manager, RSPCA NSW, said that every dollarraised from Million Paws Walk is vital in providing the animals in the RSPCA’scare with a second chance.
“Our virtual challenge is an opportunity for people to support Million PawsWalk their own way. Supporters enjoy being active outdoors with their poochwhen best suited to their lifestyle while raising funds for a very specialcause at the same time.
“Each member of our fun and rewarding Million Paws Walk virtual community hasaccess 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.”
