Noosa is such a popular destination that even the dogs are scampering to be here. RSPCA manager Nic Cleary said the Noosa shelter had taken in animals from across Queensland to help out other shelters.
“We’ve got over 2000 animals across the state at the moment. We have dogs at Noosa from Townsville, Kingaroy and Wacol,” she said. And the closure of the Cairns shelter for refurbishment meant others were lending a hand until it reopens.
“It gives you a good feeling being able to help our organisation across the state, not just Noosa. It’s good to see the bigger picture. A lot of the dogs we have are large, bull Arab breeds. We’re crying out for people with properties who would like to have them.”
Noosa is an area of animal lovers. During a sale weekend four weeks ago, almost 30 animals were rehomed in the area and not many are surrendered “through the front door“.
On Sunday, Noosa RSPCA will hold its biggest fund-raiser, the Million Paws Walk on Gympie Terrace, Noosaville.
Last year the Noosa event raised about $8000 and this year’s event promises to be plenty of fun. Melanie Breasts will be MC, there will be fancy dress, ring events, exhibitors, stalls and prizes to win.
Registration is from 8.30am, and the walk begins at 9.30am. Just turn up or register online at www.millionpawswalk.com.au
