Paws hit the pavement

IT WAS all animals great and small on the weekend.

RSPCA's Million Paws Walk didn't quite get that many paws on the Coffs Coast, but judging from the enthusiastic crowds they certainly did well.

With hundreds of dog owners, many bringing more than one canine companion, the event was a resounding success for the Coffs Harbour RSPCA animal.

One couple even arrived with five dogs, who, although excited, managed to stay still just long enough to pose for our photographer.

RSPCA's annual Million Paws Walk is an opportunity for pet owners to get together, swap stories, and raise funds.

Coffs Harbour RSPCA manager Sue Merrick has a simple message for potential pet owners: Don't get an animal unless you can keep it for life.

From the happy tails and big smiles on Sunday, it seems locals are taking on the message.
