raised more than $400 for the RSPCA
this year," POET Usback said.
There are plans in motion already
for next year's event with the four-
legged friends from HMAS Albatross
sending out invitations for their
HMAS Creswell counterparts to join
in the fun and form a 'Shoalhaven Dog
The RSPCA Million Paws Walk is
one of the biggest fundraising events
for the RSPCA.
It involves thousands of people
and dogs registering, fundraising and
