Walking the dog is often a calming, serene experience, but on Sunday, May 19, it will be all paws forward as Murray Bridge hosts one of this year's Million Paws Walk.

The walk is a fundraiser for the RSPCA, and with thousands of people and their dogs taking part it is also a great way to meet people and get a little exercise.

The money raised goes towards supporting RSPCA shelters and providing community education for people of all ages.

People who do not have a dog can also enter the two kilometre or four kilometre walk around Sturt Reserve.

Market stalls, barbecue, coffee truck and activities will also keep everyone entertained at the family-friendly venue.

The event is for dogs only with no other animals allowed for safety reasons.

All dogs must be on a leash and people must take full responsibility for their animal.

Murray Bridge's fourth annual event will begin at 9.30am and will finish around 1pm with the walk beginning at 10am.

Prices for registering online are adults $13.50, children and concession $9, family of four $31.50.

The prices increase if registering on the day - adults $15, children and concession $10, family of four $35.
