ANIMAL lovers are wanted to pound the pavement, shake a tin and raise much-needed funds on Happy Tails Day on October 2.

Volunteers are needed throughout the metropolitan area to help raise money for the thousands of sick, injured and neglected animals RSPCA WA helps every year.

Chief executive David van Ooran said the organisation was always reliant on members of the community to support its lifesaving work.

“We’re urging animal lovers to roll up their sleeves and lend a hand to support us in raising vital funds this Happy Tails Day,” Mr van Ooran said.

“We need to raise over 90 per cent of the funding required to prevent cruelty to thousands of animals each year, so we’re urging those in the community who care to sign up and help us raise money for animals in need.”

To register, contact RSPCA WA on 9209 9300, email volunteer@rspcawa.asn.au or sign up at www.rspcawa.asn.au.

RSPCA WA needs to generate more than 90 per cent of the funding required to protect animals from cruelty, with 6 per cent covered by the State Government.
