The Million Paws Walk has not been held in Bathurst since before the COVID-19 pandemic in 2019, when hundreds of pet owners took their dogs for a walk around the Macquarie River.
This year's event will take participants around the Macquarie River once again, with money raised on the day to go to the RSPCA Bathurst Branch.
Participants will meet at Bicentennial Park near the river, with registrations opening at 10am.
The two kilometre walk will kick off at 11am. After the walk, people are encouraged to stick around to enjoy some music, raffles and more.
The walk was inaugurated in Queensland in 1994, with the idea eventually being taken to a national audience in 1996.
Money raised doesn't just directly help our dogs, as it also helps fund crucial community outreach programs to educate communities and school kids about the importance of pet ownership.
RSPCA Australia was established in 1981 to promote animal welfare, with each state and territory.
