Taree hosts Million Paws Walk

PET owners around NSW are once again planning to put their paws to the floor to fight animal cruelty, with the 21st annual RSPCA Million Paws Walk just two months away.

Easily the biggest event on the canine calendar, the Million Paws Walk is also the single most important way of supporting the RSPCA's battle to stop animal cruelty.

All animal lovers are encouraged to dust off their walking shoes and come out to enjoy the festivities.

Even those without pooches are welcome to join in the fun with family activities, stalls and entertainment.

Taree's walk is planned for Sunday, May 18 from 9am at Taree Showground, Muldoon Street, Taree.

"The best part about all the Million Paws Walk events around the State is that funds raised stay in the local community to assist the RSPCA volunteer branches and regional shelters to take care of local animals," said Steve Coleman, RSPCA NSW CEO.

Fundraising is an essential component of the Million Paws Walk and this year the RSPCA hopes to raise $300,000 to assist the more than 30,000 animals that it cares for each year.
