Register now for the 2014 RSPCA Million Paws Walk event, to be held Sunday 18 May from 8.30am to 12.30pm at Logan Gardens.

Get ready to put your best paws forward Logan, we’re only one month out from the annual walk that sets tails wagging right across the nation.

Share your support for animals in need and join hundreds of animal lovers as we walk our favourite four-legged friends for charity on Sunday 18 May.

There’ll be something for every man and his (or her!) dog as the annual event, arguably the biggest doggy day out in Queensland, returns to Logan City for the second year running.

Animals and City Standards Committee Chairperson, Councillor Graham Able (Division 5) said the event had received such great feedback when Logan launched it for the first time last year and he hoped to break attendance records again this May.  

“We’re hoping to reach 1,000 registrations this year. That would give me 1,000 reasons to smile knowing that our residents have actively joined the cause to end animal cruelty,” he said.

“Whether you’ve got a pooch or not; regardless of the breed, size or age of your dog – everyone is welcome – as long as their dogs are fully vaccinated, friendly and registered with Council.”

Cr Able said the event catered to all fitness levels, allowing entrants the option to walk, run or simply stroll the 2.5km or 3.5km courses.

“It’s heading into the colder months so why not make the most of this amazing Queensland weather and join your family and friends for a leisurely day out,” he said.

“You can share in a morning of family fun and entertainment too – with competitions, barbeques, face painting and plenty of prizes to give away on the day.

“Most importantly, by registering to walk you’re helping the RSPCA provide essential care, veterinary treatment, food and shelter for animals in need.

“All online donations go towards giving mistreated animals the home they deserve.”

The 2014 RSPCA Million Paws Walk event is on Sunday 18 May from 8.30am to 12.30pm at Logan Gardens, Civic Parade, Logan Central. The walk will commence at 10am.

Residents who register online before Friday 16 May can take advantage of savings and get a head start on raising worthwhile funds.
