Communities across B.C. are coming together to save animals.
The Scotiabank & BC SPCA Paws for a Cause walk is being hosted in 35 communities across the province on Sept 8 (dates may vary in some communities, please check spca.bc.ca/walk for details).
This year the BC SPCA hopes to raise $1 million to provide life-saving help for the nearly 29,000 abused, injured, neglected and homeless animals cared for each year in SPCA shelters and facilities.
“By signing up and collecting pledges, you’re not just helping your community’s most vulnerable animals,” says Farrah Rooney, manager of fundraising events at the BC SPCA. “You’ll also enjoy an amazing day with activities for the whole family to enjoy, and you’ll be eligible for fabulous local and provincial prizes.”
Those interested in getting involved in the Scotiabank & BC SPCA Paws for a Cause are encouraged to join as an individual, as a group, or as a corporate team and can register today at spca.bc.ca/walk. The website offers everything participants need to get started, including fundraising ideas, an online fundraising page, posters, donation forms and ways to volunteer.
