Volunteer Opportunities - Application: 2020 Million Paws Walk Coordinator

Role Purpose

The RSPCA is looking for an enthusiastic, reliable and highly organised volunteer with plenty of initiative to prepare and coordinate the Million Paws Walk event, to be held on Sunday 17 May 2020.

Million Paws Walk attracts thousands of people and their dogs throughout Victoria at several different walk locations, raising much-needed funds for ‘all creatures great and small’. It is the RSPCA’s major fundraising event of the year and without the generous support of the community and volunteers we would not be able to raise the vital funds needed to care for lost, abandoned and rescued animals. We do everything we can to give each animal a second chance at happiness and events like Million Paws Walk help us to achieve this objective.


Key Responsibilities

The Million Paws Walk Coordinator Volunteer may be responsible for activities for the walk including:

  • Distributing marketing collateral
  • Arranging event permits
  • Recruiting and organising volunteers
  • Sourcing vendors and exhibitors for the day
  • Organising raffles and prizes
  • Co-ordinating logistics including the event set-up, equipment requirements and parking
  • Supervising at the event on the day
  • Handling funds raised and tracking finances at the event
  • Banking any funds raised the day after the event
