Million Paws Walk 2023

Grab your pooch, pop on your sneakers and help raise money for animals in need.

If you're a dog person, being surrounded by wagging tails and beaming pooch faces is one of the happiest feelings in the world. Here's another: doing your part to assist animals in need. Each year — a pandemic hiatus aside — the RSPCA's Million Paws Walk combines the two, asking Melburnians and their puppers to go for a stroll to help raise funds for an obviously extremely worth cause.

Come Sunday, May 28, this endorphin-sparking mosey returns for 2023, taking over the Pelican Lawn at Albert Park Lake. Whether you're keen to dress up for the occasion — in a matching outfit to your four-legged bestie, of course — or just pop on your sneakers and usual workout attire, you can join in from 11am (with registrations from 9am).

Entry costs $35 for adults and $30 for concessions, with the money raised going towards RSPCA Victoria's work rescuing, rehabilitating and rehoming animals.

In addition to the exercise, you and Rover can browse a heap stalls and exhibits, grab a bite from food trucks and listen to live tunes. There's also dog competitions, including 'waggiest tail'.
