The Million
Paws Walk, an RSPCA fundraiser which took place in Victoria, Australia on
Sunday evening saw roughly 12,000 human attendees walk alongside their canine
companions.

In the 21st
occurrence of the annual event, the community joined together, walking the
Cairnes Espalande to raise funds for the RSPCA.

An
estimated total of $170,000 was contributed to the animal welfare organization
this year, a sum which unfortunately falls short of the $645,000 it aimed for.
