Stepping out for man’s best friend

The RSPCA Million Paws walk will be held in Coffs Harbour on Sunday May 18 at Park Beach Reserve.

The walk aims to raise funds to help the RSPCA continue its vital work caring for animals in our region.

Celebrating 20 years this year the Million Paws Walk is the RSPCA's biggest fundraising event.

"The whole family, especially the four-legged family members, will enjoy the festival with stalls, demonstrations, entertainment and competitions," RSPCA Coffs Harbour manager Sue Merrick said.

"The 4km walk boasts coastal views - dogs and participants alike are sure to enjoy the stroll along the ocean-side pathway out to the Jetty and back." 

To help celebrate this milestone and raise awareness of the work that the RSPCA dose PETstock and Genesis Fitness Club have joined forces to make this the biggest walk yet!

"PETstock and our friends at Genesis are passionate about supporting the great work that the RSPCA do in our community. We have a special team that people can join and we will be handing out lots of freebies at the event." PETstock Manager Jay Guthrie said.

All of the funds raised for the event will stay in the local community to assist RSPCA volunteer branches and regional shelters to help more animals.

There will be a special sign on event in City Square today from 9am to 3pm, or people can sign up online or on the day.
