SUNDAY, May 20 will see thousands of animal lovers unite against cruelty when the RSPCA WA’s Million Paws Walk fundraiser takes place in Sir James Mitchell Park in South Perth.

Taking the lead in the all creatures great and small event is long time RSPCA supporter and Mandurah resident Suez McKay, who will be taking part along with her German Shepherd Precious.

“I’m a huge animal lover and have had dogs and cats all my life,’’ she said.”

“I go to the Million Paws Walk every year with my daughter and we just love to see all the dogs, it’s a really great event.

“And I’ve always respected RSPCA WA and its work in the community and am very aware that the organisation always needs more funds to investigate animal cruelty.

“The Million Paws Walk is such a great way for animal lovers to show their support for RSPCA WA particularly the great work the inspectors do in fighting cruelty and I’m looking forward to driving up to Perth on the day.”

A Million Paws Walk will also be held in Rockingham on the same day at Naval Memorial Park from 8am to 1pm with a start time of 11am.

RSPCA WA relies on fundraising and community support to generate more than 90 per cent of the funds required to sustain its animal protection work.

Eight regional walks are also taking place across various locations between Shark Bay, Denmark and Kalgoorlie.
