Celebrating 30 years, the Million Paws Walk is held across the country to raise vital funds for dogs in need, as well as raise awareness for animal cruelty. The events aim to help rescue, rehabilitate and rehome dogs in need.

Over the last 29 years 750,000 people and 400,000 dogs have laced up and leashed up to make a difference, including a whopping 791 Geelong local walkers and 459 dogs last year raising $23,704 for the important cause.

This year RSPCA Victoria inspectors will be joining local pet owners at the Geelong Million Paws Walk to raise awareness of their important work to end animal cruelty. They invite pet owners to have a chat and join the Q&A to discover their essential work.

In addition to the 3km walk which will have your pup in the best spirits, other doggy activities are on offer at Geelong Botanic Gardens including a dog themed market with over 30 stall holders, a dog training demonstration agility course by BB’s – All About Dogs, a very sweet doggy kissing photo booth and pet competitions.

For your other babies, there are kids activities including a scavenger hunt, face painting and a kids corner by An Aurora of Resources and, most excitingly, a special appearance by beloved Australian television dog, Bluey!

Food trucks are also available on-site to make a day of the fundraising event.

Registrations open at 8.30am with the first agility course taking place at 9.15am, and the leisurely 3km walk kicking off at 11am.
