We all know dogs love a good walk, but what if we told you taking your furry friend for a stroll could also help pups who aren't so fortunate?
The Million Paws Walk - Australia's biggest walk against animal cruelty, will take place in numerous communities throughout Australia this May.
The RSPCA event offers dog lovers a chance to walk their furry friends, while also raising funds to help recue, rehabilitate and rehome dogs in need.
In addition to coordinated walks which will be taking place all around the country, a virtual alternative will also be available this year. The virtual walk will challenge dog lovers to walk 30 minutes every day throughout May in order to raise funds.
RSPCA NSW community fundraiser manager Ben Wilheim said the event was a fun way to make a big difference.
"The Million Paws Walk is an opportunity for families and their pooches to get together for a really fun day out, whilst raising much-needed funds for RSPCA NSW," he said.
"We are so excited to be able to run these events with our supporters again.
"After a couple of years break, Million Paws Walk 2022 is set to be bigger and better than ever!"
Walkers who want to take part just need to follow three steps: register on the event's website, share and ask friends to donate to the cause, and turn up with their pooches to walk at either the virtual event, or one of the many coordinated events.
Coordinated walks will take place in NSW, Victoria, Tasmania, the ACT and Northern Territory.
