Wear your doggo pride for all to see and join the RSPCA ACT as they attempt to break a Guinness World Record.
This year the RSPCA is aiming to have the largest gathering of people dressed as dogs at the Million Paws Walk on Sunday 20 May.
The current record is set at 439 people and is held by an organisation in the United Kingdom. With Canberra’s help, ACT RSPCA are confident they can beat the Brits!
If you want to take part, you need to dressed in a full dog costume, head to toe, including headpiece with ears, and costumes must be clearly recognisable as dogs at the discretion of the independent witnesses and the Guinness World Records judges.
RSPCA Chief Executive Tammy Ven Dange was excited about RSPCA ACT’s third attempt for a world record.
“We earned the first world record by having the most number of dogs dressed up with bandannas. The second one came unexpectedly when our team rescued a woolly sheep named Chris in need of a serious haircut,” Tammy said.
“This time we wanted to celebrate the animal lovers out there by getting the humans involved. After all, how can a person show more love than through their willingness to dress up like their favourite pooch? The dogs will be thrilled!”
If dressing up isn’t your thing, don’t worry it’s not mandatory and you’re welcome to come to the Million Paws Walk at Patrick White Lawns in whatever makes you comfortable.
The record attempt will begin at 10am with the final count at 10:30am.
