Some problems only a puppy cuddle can fix, although few of us are lucky enough to have an office dog on hand for just such an occasion during the workday. But on Friday 4 May 2018, the lunch-goers of Cloisters got the opportunity to step away from their desk for some one-on-one time with RSPCA’s rescue dogs for a little midday stress relief.
The lunchtime visit from the RSPCA ‘pooch pod’ was to raise awareness of the upcoming Million Paws Walk. The Million Paws Walk, to be held on Sunday 20 May 2018, is the chance for dog lovers to unite to show their support of animals in need. It’s a great day out for all, with entertainment, stalls, delicious food, competitions, giveaways and a whole lot more. All dogs are welcome (as long as they’re vaccinated, friendly and socialised), and should you lack your own furry bundle of joy, don’t worry as even people without pooches are encouraged to join in the fun. The money raised helps to provide essential care for the hundreds of animals the RSPCA takes in each year.
The Cloisters ‘pooch pod’ was a huge success, with the dogs lapping up the attention and the RSPCA receiving 18 Million Paws Walk registrations and raising over $800 in donations and merchandise sales.
