Paws hit local footpaths

CELIA Rowe and her schnauzer, Zac, weren’t the only ones who thought Sunday was a beautiful morning for a leisurely stroll.

Around 170 local dogs and their owners took part in the RSPCA’s major annual fundraiser, the Million Paws Walk, covering a two kilometre route along Christmas Bells Road and on to the Boral depot.

One of the many volunteers who pitched in for the walk, Michael Bigalow, said the addition of water bowls along the way was clearly appreciated by some of the less athletic pooches.

Mr Bigalow said that because the government only provides $200,000 towards the $16 million annual cost of running the service, the fundraising walk was not just vitally important but a lot of fun for both owners and pooches.
