IT was a time to “paws” and reflect for many of the participants in yesterday’s Million Paws Walk held at the Wangaratta Showgrounds.
Just under 200 walkers and their dogs took part in the walk which raised money for the RSPCA.
Among the participants were many dogs who had been re-homed through the local RSPCA shelter and other animal rescue services.
Shelter supervisor, Jan Thomas, said catching up with old dogs and their owners was one of the most pleasing parts of the day.
“It’s lovely to see dogs from our shelter,” she said.
“A few came up from Melbourne, who’ve been re-homed through the shelter and it was lovely to catch up with those dogs and their owners.”
