On 16th July, RSPCA NSW celebrated its 139th birthday! Happy birthday!
44,000 animals are placed in shelters each year just in New South Wales. Events like this raises vital funds to help look after these animals and give them a new lease on life and hopefully a forever home.
The walk is attended by more than 60,000 people and 20,000 pets and provides a real festival atmosphere with live entertainment, a variety of food and drink stalls, demonstrations and exhibitions, as well as a huge range of pet care products and accessories to buy.
To sponsor my walk, please visit my fundraising page and place a donation. All proceeds will go to the RSPCA.
Anything to support these beautiful creatures is better than nothing at all, so dig deep!

Asia haven’t always had the best coverage when it comes to the animal world – with Japan overfishing and slaughtering dolphins and whales and China skinning mammals alive for their fur. So it is nice to see the people who are dedicating their life to animals in the area.
