The Pooch Pod returned to Cloisters to give office workers a lunch break with a difference.
Last Friday RSPCA volunteers brought some furred friends to the courtyard to play fetch and pose for pictures to raise awareness and gather registrations for the Million Paws Walk taking place on Sunday 19 May 2019. To encourage everyone to ‘adopt not shop’, people were also able to register their interest to adopt a pooch on the day.
The Pets of Older Persons (POOPS for short) volunteers joined in on the fun to promote their not-for-profit initiative, which is all about keeping people and their pets together. POOPS provide volunteers to assist the elderly and people with disabilities with the care of their pets in times of difficulty, see their website www.poopswa.org.au to find out more.
The Nova93.7 team handed out free gifts with their ‘spin and win’ and, along with Channel 10, broadcast the event to encourage participation in this great cause. You can see Channel 10’s coverage of the event below.
About the Million Paws Walk
Over 10,000 people and their dogs across WA pound the pavement to fight against animal cruelty at the annual event. The Million Paws Walk is a great day out for the whole family. There’s entertainment, stalls, delicious food, competitions, giveaways and a whole lot more!
Whatever the age, size or breed all dogs are welcome for a fantastic doggy day out (as long as they’re vaccinated, friendly and socialised). No four-legged friend? Don’t worry, even those without pooches are welcome to join in the fun.
Money raised through online fundraising, merchandise sales and activities on the day will help to provide essential care for the hundreds of animals that RSPCA WA cares for each year. Every dollar you raise will assist in reaching a goal of $350,000.
