DUNCRAIG’S Davis family is taking the lead against cruelty to animals by taking part in this Sunday’s Million Paws Walk for RSPCA WA.
The fundraiser will see thousands of animal lovers descend on Sir James Mitchell Park in South Perth, including Colin and Nicole, their eight-month-old twins Rachel and Sam and their rescue beagle Biscuit.
“This will be our first Million Paws Walk and we’re really looking forward to it – especially Biscuit,” Mrs Davis said.
“We’re huge animal lovers and recognise and value RSPCA WA’s rescue work in the community, which is why we’re also raising funds to support them as part of participating in the event.
“We think it’s a great way to show support for the inspectors and it should be a fun day out for two and four-legged alike.”
RSPCA WA community engagement executive manager Maree Daniels said the event had attracted tens of thousands of dog lovers and RSPCA supporters over the years.
“Each year we have all sizes and shapes of dogs take part, from chihuahuas to great danes,” she said.
“It’s a fantastic event and it’s a time when all dog lovers can come together to fight animal cruelty.
“We’re so grateful to have so much support in the community… through the overwhelming generosity of West Australian animal lovers who come along and take part in events like the Million Paws Walk.”
