Fundraiser. The Circular Head community has once again brought about a hugely successful event for Sunday’s RSPCA Million Paws Walk.
Event coordinator Trina Morris said the weather was fine and calm, so participants had a great day.
“Torrential rain the day before kept numbers down, but those who came had a great time.”
At 11am, more than 60 dogs of all descriptions set off from the Stanley Recreation Ground for a lovely stroll along the beach and foreshore trails.
The games and competitions held after the walk raised plenty of laughs as participants – both four and two legged – sat, waggled, dressed up and performed tricks for the judges.
Organisers thanked local businesses for their support, with thousands of dollars raised in donations and prizes.
“This year our fundraising took a different tack,” Mrs Morris said.
“We asked sponsors to make cash donations straight to the RSPCA, rather than giving us prizes.”
It proved to be a successful tactic with plenty of fantastic prizes on offer, including the major prize from Hobart’s Old Woolstore Hotel and a huge package of goods from Armour Hardware.
“Several thousand dollars will also go straight to the RSPCA for their vital work in animal protection,” she said.
“We look forward to seeing everyone back next year!”
