The RSPCA’s Million Paws Walk is back for 2024, and this year is extra special – it’s their 30th birthday!

The RSPCA is on a mission to fight animal cruelty, and this iconic event helps raise much-needed funds to directly help provide warmth and care for 20,000 dogs every year. Each step taken at the Million Paws Walk helps in the RSPCA’s fight to bring that number down.

Thousands of Australians and their pooches participated in this family-friendly walk in 2023, raising over $1.3 million – enough to care for 5,474 pups in shelters for an entire week. Even more Australians are expected to join the walk this year.

Million Paws Walk is ticketed so be sure to register to avoid missing out. Ticket sales go towards supporting the costs associated with delivering the events across the country, so participants are encouraged to fundraise to help raise much-needed funds to help animals in RSPCA’s care.

Walks will take place in every State and Territory during the month of May. For Canberrans, this year’s Million Paws Walk will be held on Saturday 28th May at Patrick White Lawns, just near the National Library of Australia.

Registration opens at 9am and the walk starts at 11am. After the walk, participants and their pooches can enjoy an entire range of delicious food, live music, retail stalls, games, prizes, raffles, and more.

Parking will be available at the National Library of Australia car park, the National Library of Australia (Flynn Place) car park, Questacon car park, and Parkes Place West car park. (parking fees may apply)

So, are you ready to be a hero for dogs in need? Register now and get your walking shoes ready for a good cause and a day of fun for all the family. Anyone can take part, with or without a dog!
