PUPPY STRUT: Meeka walks with Jan Bairnes, Xanda with Corinne Hayter and Leah with Fay Jackson in anticpation for Million Paws Walk in May.

THIS year's Million Paws Walk will attract approximately 1800 legs of both the canine and human variety.

The RSPCA's biggest fundraiser of the year will take place at Canoe Point on Sunday, May 18.

The walk demonstrating a solidarity between species will commence at 9am.

Friends of the RSPCA volunteer Jan Bairnes said the event was a great opportunity to celebrate and raise funds with your four-legged pal.

"Everyone comes out to have a fun day for a great cause," she said.

"It is a lot of fun with competitions, prizes, novelty events, a barbecue and raffles."

This year, particpants are encouraged to dress up with their pooches to be in the running to win the coveted Best Dressed prize.

Registrations are open until one hour before the event begins, with 100% of proceeds going towards vital programs, services and campaigns undertaken by the RSPCA Queensland, as well as looking after the animals currently in care.

Registration costs purchased online will receive a discount.

Go to millionpawswalk.com.au to join a legion of those that care about our four legged friends.
