The world famous, amazing silent auction is sure to delight participants in the Paws for a Cause event this Sunday, Sept. 20.

There will be local produce, hand-crafted merchandise, tools, services and so much more – a huge selection of items donated by local businesses and supporters!

With more than 60 items; yes there is something for everyone at the annual event sponsored by Scotiabank and BC SPCA local branch.

A few select local vendors will be there providing handcrafted items, all in support of the animals. There will be dog, cat and pony treats made with ingredients you can pronounce, plus so much more.

Chat with our Cariboo district cruelty investigation officer.

She is a wealth of knowledge and enjoys sharing the ins and outs of of the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act (PAC Act of BC).

These are the laws of B.C. that we must follow to help neglected, abused or forgotten animals.

Stop by the staff hosted concession, enjoy a hot coffee and a bite of breakfast to fuel up or relax after your walk with a cool drink and a light lunch.

Ask us about our favourite animal from the branch. Or even better, bring your adopted pet up so we can visit and reminisce about their time with us.

Visit with the Cariboo-Chilcotin MLA Donna Barnett.

Enjoy the music of Oren Barter and local musicians Padova.

And of course we will have BC SPCA merchandise, a selection of hoodies, pants, toques and so much more, plus information on local programs to help people and their pets.

And for the first time our walk route has changed!

Introducing Chase Your Tail in which all dogs chase their tail at least once in their lives, many continue to amuse their owners with this cute game well into their adulthood.

We, the Williams Lake BC SPCA decided everyone needs some extra fun in their lives and have included this game into the Paws for a Cause fundraiser.

Botanio Park is a beautiful green space in the centre of Williams Lake. It has a lovely cement walking path that is one kilometre in length.

This path meanders through the park in a large circle.

Participates of the walk will be encouraged to walk the loop of the park. Registration is at 9 a.m. Sunday, Sept. 20 with the walk starting at 10 a.m.

Each one kilometre loop will earn you an entry into a draw for some BC SPCA merchandise.

Complete one lap then pause to check out the vendors and silent auction items. Head out for another walk around the park but don’t forget to collect another entry for the draw!
