RSPCA Victoria

2021 Million Paws Walk Coordinator

Million Paws Walk Regional Event Coordinator

About us

RSPCA Victoria is a non-government, community-based, not-for-profit organisation whose vision is ‘ending cruelty to all animals’. We are Victoria’s best-known and most respected animal welfare organisation.

Our organisation’s purpose is to work with the community to achieve outstanding animal welfare through education, advocacy, and animal care and protection. RSPCA Victoria’s values - clarity and accountability, respect and consideration, and expertise and collaboration - set clear expectations for all our staff and volunteers.

Volunteers are an integral part of the RSPCA Victoria team. They play an active and vital role in helping to support our work to improve the welfare of animals and protect them from cruelty and neglect.


Time Commitment & Locations

This volunteer role will take place from December 2021 to May 2022 - Minimum 2 hours per week, with greater involvement in the weeks leading up to the event date. 

We are currently looking for MPW Coordinators for the following locations:

  • Ballarat
  • Bendigo
  • Geelong
  • Paynesville
  • Warrnambool



 Role Purpose

This role requires an enthusiastic, reliable and highly organised person with plenty of initiative to prepare and coordinate the Million Paws Walk event, to be held on Sunday 22 May 2022.


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.

  • Strong communication skills
  • Ability to provide strong and consistent leadership to other volunteers
  • Ability to work under pressure
