The annual Paws for a Cause Walk

Sun’s out, paws out: Scotiabank & BC SPCA Paws for a Cause walk fights animal cruelty

Animal lovers across the province are already registering and fundraising for the annual Scotiabank & BC SPCA Paws for a Cause

Fighting animal cruelty is as easy as a walk in the park. Animal lovers across the province are already registering and fundraising for the annual Scotiabank & BC SPCA Paws for a Cause walk, which is being hosted in 30 B.C. communities throughout September and October – and you still have plenty of time to participate in your community by visiting www.spca.bc.ca/campbellriverwalk.

The annual walk, benefitting the Campbell River BC SPCA Branch, will be held at Nunn’s Creek Park on Sunday, Sept. 11, from 9:30 a.m. with the walk starting at 11 a.m.

Participants will be able to enjoy a delicious salmon barbecue, fun games such as Paws Pong and Shark Tank, a bouncy castle, face painting, entertainment, and more.

Supported by local sponsors, 99.7 2Day FM, Campbell River Mirror, MacTavish Welding, Great Canadian Oil Change, Strathcona Toyota, Marine Harvest, Seymour Pacific Developments Ltd., Associated Tire, Dogwood Pet Mart, RH Printing, and Shar-Kare, the event brings animal lovers and their furry friends together for a great time as well as a fantastic cause.

“This is the largest single event to raise funds to 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.

“Our amazing supporters not only raise essential funds, the events are tons of fun for two-legged and four-legged participants.”
