As Million Paws Walk approaches on May 26, Dakabin RSPCA has been sharing heartfelt stories of some beloved four-legged friends in their care.

A pair of Jack Russell Terrier siblings, Monty and Milly found themselves in the care of Dakabin RSPCA's Home Ever After program after their owner went into respite and was no longer able to care for them.

RSPCA Queensland’s Communications and Public Relations Specialist Jacobbe McBride says the pair were well looked after.

“Monty and Milly stayed in RSPCA care for 10 months before they were adopted into their new loving families,” Jacobbe says.

The Home Ever After program allows owners to put their beloved pets up for adoption or request for care in the case of an emergency.

The Dakabin RSPCA shelter will be participating in this year’s Million Paws Walk.

RSPCA Queensland is hoping this year’s walk will be the best one yet; especially as the organisation will be celebrating its 30th birthday in the same month.

“For 30 years, Australians and their pooches have been walking and wagging to help fight animal cruelty,” Jacobbe explains.

“This May, we're celebrating our 30th birthday and we want you to be involved.

“There’s a Million Paws Walk event near you, so bring your four-legged friend along and fundraise to give dogs in need of a voice!”

Join the Dakabin shelter on Sunday, May 26 at Pine Rivers Park in Strathpine, from 8.30am-1pm.
