The BC SPCA and Scotiabank’s Paws for a Cause takes place this Sunday at Nunns Creek Park at 11 a.m.

Participants can register onsite beginning at 9:30 a.m. – online registration is now closed.

The walk is being hosted in 34 communities across the province on Sept. 9. This year the BC SPCA hopes to raise $1 million for animals in need.

“The Scotiabank & BC SPCA Paws for a Cause walk is a fun way to get involved and make a huge impact in the lives of animals in need,” says Farrah Rooney, manager of fundraising events at the BC SPCA. “Our walks include food, fabulous prizes and lots of fun activities for our two and four-legged participants. The best part is that the funds raised help save the lives of thousands of abused, injured, neglected and homeless animals in B.C.”

In Campbell River, the SPCA is hosting an old-fashioned country fair featuring face painting, a kids fishing pond, a salmon barbecue by Marine Harvest, as well as a Best Hat, Bowl Licking, and Best Handling contest.

The BC SPCA is a non-profit organization that relies on community support to carry out cruelty investigations, sheltering and a wide range of services for more than 32,000 animals each year.

Those interested in getting involved in The Scotiabank & BC SPCA Paws for a Cause are encouraged to join as an individual, as a group, or as a corporate team.

The BC SPCA has set up a comprehensive website at spca.bc.ca/walk, with sponsorship opportunities, fundraising ideas, pledge kits, posters, merchandise and ways to volunteer.
