Go walkies for the animals

Animal lovers in Campbell River are urged to slide into their favourite pair of walking shoes and get moving to help a furry friend

Animal lovers in Campbell River are urged to slide into their favourite pair of walking shoes and get moving to help a furry friend.

Registration is open for the annual Scotiabank & BC SPCA Paws for a Cause walk held each fall to raise funds for homeless and abused animals in B.C. Each year participants in 37 communities around the province walk with colleagues, friends, family and with their dogs to raise $1 million to help animals in need.

“This is the largest single event supporting animals in B.C.,” says Denise Meade, the society’s director of development. To register and for more information visit spca.bc.ca/walk. Scotiabank & BC SPCA Paws for a Cause will be held at Nunn’s Creek Park on September 11. Registration begins at 9:30 a.m.
