The 2012 Million Paws Walk is now just over a week away – and South Australians can save if they register today.
While participants are welcome to sign up on the day, today (May 10) is the last day they can take advantage of early bird prices.
RSPCA (SA) Media and Campaigns Manager Jennifer Salter said preparations are in full swing for the event, at Elder Park on May 20.
“The Million Paws Walk is a fantastic day out and this year’s event will be no exception,” she said.
“Thousands of South Australians and their furry friends are expected to take part in the walk, including long term shelter dogs, who will be hoping to find their paw-fect match.
“While this is a fun day out for the whole family, the Million Paws Walk has a serious side, which is raising vital funds for the RSPCA.
“And it’s not just for dog lovers – it’s an opportunity for anyone who wants to help animals in need.
“South Australians don’t have to own a pooch or pound the pavement to contribute.
“You can support the RSPCA and this fantastic event by fundraising or sponsoring a dog involved, by visiting www.millionpawswalk.com.au
“Last year, the Million Paws Walk raised $128,341 for South Australian animals in need”.
In 2010-11, the RSPCA’s Operations Team responded to almost 5000 reports of alleged cruelty or requests for assistance for injured animals.
During this time we cared for 9,302 animals in our shelters.
