2015 marked the 20th years of the RSPCA’s Million Paws Walk—which celebrates the important roles that animals play in our lives and raises awareness of animal cruelty.

While record numbers of canines and people turned out at multiple locations across Australia, in the country's capital, Canberra, our four-legged friends broke a world record.

A whopping 764 dogs turned out wearing bandanas, smashing the Guinness Book of World Record’s for the number of pooches wearing bandanas in one location.

Apparently it was a logistical nightmare getting all the dogs into the marshalling area for counting, but well worth it we think!

The Million Paws Walk is the RSPCA’s biggest fundraising event of the year. Funds raised go towards the critical work that the RSPCA does in the community to care for the 30,000 plus animals that enter their shelters each year.

If you didn’t take part in this year’s Walk but would like to donate, you still can—fundraising for the Million Paws Walk 2015 is open until June 30. Donate now!

Pop the 2016 Million Paws Walk in your diary now: Sunday May 16.
