People of all ages, and pets of all shapes and sizes came out to support the SPCA’s annual Paws for a Cause fundraiser Sunday.
Shelter manager Liz Dighton said Scotiabank volunteer organizers have reported the SPCA has already surpassed their fundraising goal for the event, bringing in more than $9,000 so far.
“It’s always an awesome event,” said Dighton Tuesday.
“The community is very supportive of what we do at the shelter. It makes me very proud to live in Williams Lake.”
Dog lovers gathered pledges for at the event at Boitanio Park, which took place from 9 a.m. until after 1 p.m., and then choose to walk one of three routes in the city.
As many as 60 silent auction items donated by local businesses were also up for grabs at the event.
Dighton said all the money raised locally stays at the local shelter.
Currently the shelter has many kittens up for adoption, and can always use volunteers to help with cleaning from 8 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.
