The Million
Paws Walk, an RSPCA fundraiser which took place in Victoria, Australia on
Sunday evening saw roughly 12,000 human attendees walk alongside their canine
companions.

Fundraiser

In the 21st
occurrence of the annual event, the community joined together, walking the
Cairnes Espalande to raise funds for the RSPCA.

An
estimated total of $170,000 was contributed to the animal welfare organization
this year, a sum which unfortunately falls short of the $645,000 it aimed for.

Animal care

The
money that was raised will go toward the RSPCA work with animals.

This
includes the care of over 51,000 animals each year, and the investigation of
thousands of cases of animal cruelty – on both a residential and industrial
scale.
