Put paws forward for SPCA

Some animals never know kindness. The good news is, you can fight animal cruelty in your community by registering and fundraising

Some animals never know kindness. The good news is, you can fight animal cruelty in your community by registering and fundraising for the 2015 Scotiabank & BC SPCA Paws for a Cause walk, held in September to raise funds for abused, injured, neglected and homeless animals throughout B.C.

The Scotiabank & BC SPCA Paws for a Cause walk to fight animal cruelty benefitting the Shuswap SPCA Branch will begin at Blackburn Park, Salmon Arm on Saturday, Sept. 12, from 9:30 a.m. The participants will walk in the Salmon Arm Fall Fair Parade starting at 10:45 a.m. Come out to see friendly faces and wagging tails!

This year, participants in more than 30 communities throughout the province will walk to raise funds to help animals in need across British Columbia.

“This is the largest single event to help fight animal cruelty in British Columbia,” says Krista Constantineau, BC SPCA manager of fundraising events. “We are overwhelmed by the participation each year – it’s so great to see thousands of people come together across the province to help B.C.’s most vulnerable animals – and the great news is, this year, registration numbers are up! Our amazing supporters not only raise essential funds, the events are so much fun for two-legged and four-legged participants.”
