Paws for a Cause coming up in Williams Lake
Some animals never know kindness.
The good news is, you can fight animal cruelty in your community by registering and fundraising for the 2014 Scotiabank and BC SPCA Paws for a Cause walk.
The event is held each September to raise funds for abused, injured, neglected and homeless animals throughout B.C.
This year, participants in 31 communities throughout the province will walk to raise funds to help animals in need across British Columbia.
The Scotiabank and BC SPCA Paws for a Cause walk to fight animal cruelty in Williams Lake will be held at Boitanio Park picnic shelter on Sunday, Sept. 21 from 9 a.m. with the walk starting at 10 a.m.
Proceeds from the walk will benefit animals at the Williams Lake and District SPCA.
Participants can enjoy a variety of entertainment and fun activities, including a kid’s gold rock hunt, raffle, SPCA merchandise booth, information booths with your local Special Provincial Constable, and plenty of food available for dogs and humans.
The event brings animal lovers and their furry friends from all walks of life together for a great time as well as a fantastic cause.
“This is the largest single event to help fight animal cruelty in British Columbia,” says Krista Constantineau, manager of fundraising events at the BC SPCA.
“We are overwhelmed by the amazing 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.
“Our supporters not only raise essential funds, the events are so much fun for two-legged and four-legged participants.”
