RSPCA Million Paws Walk is back in 2022

Australia’s largest walk for animal welfare, RSPCA Million Paws Walk, is returning on Sunday 29 May 2022.

Thousands of tails are wagging in anticipation for the 2022 edition of RSPCA NSW’s biggest fundraiser, which will take place in eight locations across New South Wales.

Get in early and sign up before Monday 28 March to receive a barking mad discount of 50% off.

There is something for everyone this year as there is also a virtual alternative that will challenge dog lovers to walk 30 minutes every day in May and raise funds to fight animal cruelty.

“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”, says RSPCA NSW Community Fundraiser Manager, Ben Wilheim.

“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!”


Each year, RSPCA NSW provides care to over 30,000 animals. Funds raised from Million Paws Walk events are vital in keeping RSPCA NSW shelters operating and RSPCA NSW inspectors on the road, to investigate animal cruelty across the state. This fundraiser is also pivotal in funding RSPCA NSW education programs, which focus on breaking cycles of abuse and neglect.

  1. Sydney – Sydney Olympic Park
  2. Shoalhaven – Lions Park, Burrill Lake
