Lace up your walking shoes and get your furry friend on a collar to raise funds for animals in need at the RSPCA Million Paws Walk 2013.
The fundraising event will be taking place in several Tasmanian locations including Hobart, Launceston, St Helens, Smithton and Ulverston on Sunday May 19.
Gather your friends, family and four-legged pals to help raise vital funds for RSPCA Tasmania.
The funds raised through entry fees and merchandise sales will be used to help the RSPCA operate its animal shelters, provide community education on animal welfare issues and support its inspectorate services.
To get involved, all you need to do is register for the event, pay your registration fee, create an online fundraising page and then ask your friends, family and work colleagues to support you!
Some items that you will want to pack for the 'big doggy day out' are human and pet sunscreen, comfortable walking shoes, sunglasses, hat, bottles of water, poop bags and money for parking, lunch or pet products.
For your dog to be eligible to participate in the Million Paws Walk they must be registered and fully vaccinated, wear a collar with an identification tag, be on a leash at all times, have had recent flea and worming treatment (three weeks leading up to event) and must be socialised and generally non-aggressive to people and other dogs.
Leave your other pet friends at home with strictly no other types of animals (cats, pigs, ferrets, etc) permitted to participate in the Million Paws Walk.
Children must also be accompanied by an adult during all stages of the walk. There will be RSPCA staff on hand with first aid equipment for humans and dogs on the event day as well.
So get registered and building your online fundraising campaign for the RSPCA Million Paws Walk on Sunday May 19!
