THE first Sapphire Coast Million Paws Walk was a great success.
There were 100 dogs - including two three legged dogs - and their human friends who gathered at Rotary Park in Merimbula on Sunday to help raise funds for the Sapphire Coast volunteer branch of RSPCA NSW.
On a beautiful day, participants walked about 3.5km through Spencer Park to the bridge and back.
Members of the cast of the Footprint Theatre production of The Dog Logs, in their doggie costumes, mingled with the crowd.
The Pambula, Eden and Merimbula Vet Clinics provided express health checks, with proceeds being donated to the Branch.
Sapphire Coast branch president Marisa Whant thanked those who attended, and talked about how the branch will be using funds raised to improve the welfare of animals within the local community.
The branch is expecting to raise over $2000 through the efforts of the walkers and their supporters.
