WHO LET THE DOGS OUT?
This Sunday, thousands of people and their fury friends will walk together to show their support for the RSPCA and their
tireless work for the animals of Australia. The annual RSPCA Million Paws Walk will take off in 15 locations around Victoria, including Geelong. Starting at the Botanic Gardens, local animal lovers will hook their pooches up to a lead for a fun day out in a bid to raise much-needed funds for the 250,000 animals who come through the RSPCA doors each year.
