Join fellow animal lovers for a "fur"tastic day at this year's BC SPCA Paws for a Cause walk at Lafarge Lake in Coquitlam.
The walk, which takes place at noon on Sunday, Sept. 8, will feature a doggie-look-alike contest and doggie musical sit, as well as face painting (for humans, of course), RCMP in full regalia and a pet photographer.
The BC SPCA is inviting animal lovers to register for the annual Scotiabank & BC SPCA Paws for a Cause walk, being hosted in 34 communities across the province on Sept. 8. This year the BC SPCA hopes to raise $1 million for animals in need. "The Scotiabank & BC SPCA Paws for a Cause walk is a fun way to get involved and make a huge impact in the lives of animals in need," Farrah Rooney, manager of fundraising events at the BC SPCA, said in a press release.
"As the BC SPCA's biggest fundraising event, the Scotiabank and BC SPCA Paws for a Cause supports life-saving work in branches across the province throughout the year."
Those interested in getting involved in the walk are encouraged to join as an individual, as a group or as a corporate team.
The BC SPCA has set up a comprehensive website at spca.bc.ca/walk to help get you started, with sponsorship opportunities, fundraising ideas, pledge kits, posters, merchandise and ways to volunteer.
The BC SPCA does not currently receive any provincial or federal government funding and is reliant on B.C. residents to help them save the lives of abandoned, abused and neglected animals throughout the province.
Now File Photo / Paws for a Cause walks throughout B.C. raise $1 million each year for the BC SPCA. The Tri-Cities event takes place on Sept. 8 at Lafarge Lake in Coquitlam.;
