FURRY friends filed onto school grounds recently for Alkimos Primary School’s ‘million paws walk’.

The school community raised more than $420 for the RSPCA through raffle and cake sales during the event, and presented the funds to the animal welfare organisation on November 13.

U Dirty Dog dog washers also made a donation from their proceeds at the event.

Principal Andy Gorton said the event brought the growing school community together as well as supporting the RSPCA.

“We were delighted with such a positive response for this event,” he said.

“It was terrific to see so many families and their much-loved dogs of all sizes meet and enjoy the occasion- all of our new canine were very well behaved.”

Mr Gorton said based on the success of this first Million Paws Walk, the school was already planning for the event to return in 2018.
