Pledge forms for the walk are available at the SPCA shelter at 5850 Auto Road SE, in the Mall at Piccadilly, at vet clinics and Healthy Spot. There will be prizes for those collecting the most donations.

In advance of the day, volunteers will be promoting the walk at the Sicamous SASCU on Aug. 17, and the Downtown Salmon Arm SASCU on Aug. 24.

This is the biggest fundraising event in support of the more than 600 Shuswap animals that arrive in the shelter each year in need of care and re-homing.
